Attorneys representing Susan Williams and Zachary, Zelda and Cody Williams are scheduled to appear before a judge over the late actor's personal items.

The tussle between Robin Williams’ wife and children over personal items that the late actor left in one of his California homes is heading to court.

Attorneys representing Williams’ wife Susan and children Zachary, Zelda and Cody are scheduled to appear before a San Francisco probate judge on Monday, following papers filed in December.

Susan Williams claims certain items were removed from his Tiburon home without permission. She has requested that contents of the property — described as the "marital abode" in her filings — be removed from the items laid out as "clothing, jewelry, personal photos taken prior to his marriage to [Susan]... memorabilia and awards in the entertainment industry" that were assigned to his children by a trust agreement.

According to Associated Press, Susan Williams’ attorney is simply seeking guidance from the court regarding the meaning of certain terms, such as the reference to “tangible personal property” mentioned in the trust, and whether it relates to items solely from the actor’s home in Napa, or Tiburon as well.

Williams’ children are arguing that it covers both, while Susan Williams says that because he wanted her to continue living in Tiburon, he only wanted his children to have the specific items kept in Napa.
