So sad that this family has to go through even more drama!
As we reported, Robin Williams' widow Susan Schneider filed a lawsuit in December against the late comedian's children — Zachary, Zelda, and Cody — regarding the ownership of several items in his estate.
Well it turns out this dispute will finally be presented in front of a judge.
On Monday, attorneys from both parties will meet at a San Francisco courthouse to begin the legal process.
As we wrote last November, the Ms. Doubtfire actor left his entire fortune to his wife and three children.
However, almost immediately, the two sides couldn't agree on which properties belonged to who.
Schneider argues that all the items contained in the couples Tiburon home are hers. In addition, she claims his children took belongings which they were not entitled to.
Williams' kin vehemently disagree and believe they were granted his memorabilia and industry awards according to his trust, IN ADDITION to certain articles in the Tiburon estate.
To make matters more complicated, both camps cannot come to an agreement about the Jumanji star's watch collection, and about which entities should go in storage.
We just hope the family can settle their differences for the sake of Robin's memory.

She's really handling this as well as anyone possibly could.
The passing of Robin Williams left millions of people with a broken heart, but no one suffered as much as the actor's children.
But Zelda Williams stepped out in a rare appearance on Friday with her mother Marsha Garces for the Noble Awards in Beverly Hills.
And although she of course wants to keep her father's memory alive - she admits it's basically unlikely she ever will forget the larger-than-life man.
Here's what she said
Last August, fans all around the world were stunned when Robin Williams committed suicide.
Although his death was tragic, he will forever be remembered as an extremely caring individual who aside from comedy, invested his time and energy into his work with charity.
His daughter Zelda Williams is now carrying the torch by presenting a "Noble Award" in honor of his humanitarian efforts with the Challenged Athletes Foundation this Friday.
On Thursday, the 25-year-old went on TODAY for her first sit-down interview since his death and spoke with Kate Snow about his philanthropy and how she is coping with his untimely passing.
Though she admits it's difficult, Zelda is determined to live the life she did when he was alive.
The In Memoriam segment of the Oscars is always heartbreaking.
This year, Meryl Streep opened up the sad tradition with a moving speech — we especially appreciated the poignant quote she chose by the prolific author, Joan Didion.
Obviously in 2015 we lost some greats, like Robin Williams, Mickey Rooney, and Lauren Bacall. While it's hard to know so many artistic talents are no longer with us, it's comforting to see them honored in such a special way.
To top off the emotional segment, Jennifer Hudson utilized her amazing pipes to pay tribute to those we've lost with I Can't Let Go.
Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the stars we lost in 2015.
We were hoping things weren't going to get more difficult for this family.
There's no doubt Robin Williams' loved ones have been grieving, but now they're adding another hardship to their life: fighting over who has the rights to his estate.
According to papers that were filed in December in the San Francisco superior court, Susan Schneider, the late comedian's wife, accused Robin's children of taking items without her permission.
