Mel Gibson's year has gone from bad to worse, following his split from girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva and their acrimonious custody battle.
But following their 12-hour deposition last week, it seems the pair might finally be sorting things out.
Mel will be making what is believed to be his first courtroom appearance, to arrange custody of the couple's one-year-old daughter Lucia.
The closed-door hearing will take place on Wednesday in Superior Court, in Los Angeles, reports People magazine.
The 54-year-old actor and 40-year-old Oksana were together for two years before breaking up in April this year.
Following the split, Oksana accused Mel of domestic violence and the Braveheart star claimed she subjected him to extortion.
