Mel Gibson's divorce is set to be finalised in time for Christmas.
The 'Braveheart' actor will reportedly be single again when a judge signs his divorce decree with estranged wife Robyn Moore later today (23.12.11).
According to gossip website TMZ.com, there is not thought to have been a prenuptial agreement between the couple - who were married for 28 years before officially separating in 2006 - but a deal is believed to have been struck between the pair.
Robyn - who has six sons and one daughter with the Hollywood actor - filed for a legal separation in April 2009 citing "irreconcilable differences" as a reason for ending their marriage.
Earlier this month, Mel won praise from Judge Stephanie Sautner, who is overseeing his battery case against former girlfriend Oksana Grigoreiva after he completed double the amount of anger management and domestic violence counselling he was required to undertake.
The 55-year-old star has pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery against his ex-girlfriend - who he has two-year-old daughter Lucia with - and is currently on informal probation.
In March, Mel was sentenced to a year-long domestic violence counselling programme over the incident, which occurred in January 2010, and he was also served with a protective order not to "threaten or harass anyone involved in the case".
