A dispute between late actor Robin Williams' wife Susan Schneider and his kids, Zachary, Zelda, and Cody is due to head to court on Monday, March 30, as both sides battle over personal items they believe were left to them in the late actor's will.

Much loved comedian Williams, 63, took his own life back in August 2014, after a battle against depression following his Parkinson's diagnosis. As Us Weekly reported previously, court papers were filed in December 2014 as the two sides battled over the late actor's estate.

Attorneys for both parties are due in a San Francisco court later today. Williams' wife Schneider says all items contained within the Tiburon home she shared with her late husband should remain hers, and claims certain items were removed after his death, without her permission. She feels only the items in his Napa home should be given to his kids.

The Mrs. Doubtfire actor's children, however, disagree. They were granted his memorabilia and industry awards (among other "particular personal items") by his trust, according to court documents. They feel certain items held at his late marital home are included in this list.

The children claim to be "heartbroken" in their court filings (via The New York Times) and say Schneider has “acted against his wishes by challenging the plans he so carefully made for his estate.”

For her part, Schneider's attorney told the Associated Press that she is only seeking guidance from the court about the meaning of certain terms in the trust.

The two parties also disagree over items put in storage and his watch collection.
