LOS ANGELES (AP) — An attorney for Mel Gibson’s estranged wife says the former couple has nearly finalized their divorce.

Attorney Laura Wasser told a judge Tuesday that the pair have resolved all their issues and are doing some “final polishes” on the paperwork.

Wasser says the couple should have a judgment ready by Aug. 30.

Gibson’s attorney agreed with Wasser’s assessment.

Robyn Gibson filed for divorce in April 2009, just months before the Oscar winner’s then-girlfriend gave birth to an infant daughter. He indicated in court filings that the couple separated in 2006.

No details of how the couple’s assets will be divided was discussed Tuesday, and Wasser indicated those details would remain private. The former couple has seven children together, but only one who is under the age of 18.
