Lawyers for Robin Williams' wife and children are set for a legal battle over the late comedian's estate.

The lawyers are scheduled to appear before a San Francisco probate judge today, as they argue over who should get clothes and other personal items the actor kept at one his Northern California homes.

In papers filed in December, Williams' wife, Susan, says some of the late actor's personal items were taken without her permission.

She has asked the court to set aside the contents of the home she shared with Williams from the jewellery, memorabilia and other items Williams said the children should have.

Williams' children, Zachary, Zelda and Cody, say Susan Williams is trying to change the trust agreement and rob them of the late actor's belongings.
