The wife and children of Robin Williams are set for a legal battle today over the late comedian and actor's estate.

Lawyers for both parties are due to appear before a San Francisco probate judge over who should get clothes and other personal items the actor kept at one of his Northern California homes.

In December, papers filed by Williams' wife, Susan, claimed 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 items he said the children should have which include jewellery and memorabilia.

Williams' children, Zachary, Zelda and Cody, say Susan Williams is trying to change the trust agreement.

Oscar-winning actor Williams died last August, aged 63, after he hanged himself in his home.
