In a sign that Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen are trying to settle their divorce amicably, the estranged couple agreed to a temporary child custody settlement on Friday.

“Denise and Charlie are working with the Courts to privately resolve their differences regarding their children," the pair said in a joint statement. "They hope to resolve this matter outside of the public forum and will both continue to make every effort in this regard."

Sheen will be allowed supervised visitations one day per week with the couple's two daughters, Lola, 10 months, and Sam, 2. Sheen and Richards also agreed to hire a psychologist to evaluate the custody situation.

This gesture of civility is a change from last month when Richards filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court claiming that Sheen had threatened to kill her and had visited pornography Web sites featuring "very young" girls.

Sheen, 40, denied the claims. A judge, however, ordered him to stay 300 feet away from Richards, except during his visitation hours. The restraining order has been extended through June 7.

Richards, 35, originally filed for divorce in March of last year, when she was six months pregnant with Lola.

The pair appeared to briefly reconcile after Lola's birth in June, but on Jan. 4, they requested that their divorce proceed with a private arbitrator.
