Actor Mel Gibson and his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva have been granted an extension to sort out the terms of their custody settlement.
The former couple has been locked in negotiations over the care of baby daughter Lucia since they split early last year, and they finally reached a deal to equally share custody in August.
The agreement also allowed Grigorieva to keep the house she calls home and walk away with a one-off payment of $750,000, and it was expected to be finalized in court on Tuesday.
However, the two parties have clashed over the wording of the settlement and recently returned to a Los Angeles family court to ask Judge Scott Gordon for extra time to iron out the differences, reports TMZ.com.
Lawyers for the former couple are expected back in court on November 1st.
