After 28 years of marriage, Robyn Moore filed for divorce in April 2009 -- but it took more than two years for her to reach a settlement with her estranged husband, Mel Gibson.

According to TMZ, Moore's lawyer appeared before a judge Tuesday morning to announce that the former spouses have reached a full agreement regarding the terms of their divorce (including property settlements). Their lawyers are expected to turn in their final paperwork in August, making their divorce official.

Though the terms of their settlement have yet to be revealed, it's been reported that the couple did not have a pre- or postnuptial agreement. As a result, "any income earned or property purchased during the marriage is considered communal property," L.A. divorce attorney Stacy Phillips told Us Weekly in 2009.
