Robin Williams has vowed his divorce will be "honest, co-operative and civil".
The actor and his estranged wife Marsha Garces Williams have signed a pact spelling out their goals, including keeping their children's interests a priority and to try to avoid courtroom battles.
The pledge, revealed in court papers filed in the San Francisco Superior Court yesterday (06.05.08), said: "We will strive to be honest, cooperative and respectful as we work in this process to achieve the future well being of our families.
"We commit ourselves to the collaborative law process and agree to seek a positive way to resolve our differences justly and equitably."
Robin - who has two children, Zelda and Cody, with Marsha - later appeared on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' and repeated his wish for an amicable split, saying: "I think a lot of times divorce can be like circumcision with a weed whacker but the idea that it's going with love, I think, is important. And for me it's been a good thing."
Last month, Zelda admitted she wasn't surprised her parents were divorcing.
She revealed: "It wasn't a complete surprise. It's never easy to end. But there's no bitterness - we're all a family.
"I just want my parents to be happy. And they did last 18 years - a lot longer than most!"
Marsha filed for divorce in March, citing irreconcilable differences.
