Katie Holmes lawyer yellow dress divorce Tom Cruise

Katie Holmes spend all day Saturday at her attorneys' office in mid-town Manhattan Saturday, as she has for a past couple of days.

Katie and her soon-to-be-ex, Tom Cruise, are trying to settle, to "avoid a long, public divorce fight," according to a People magazine report.

Cruise "doesn't want his family dragged through the mud," a source tells the mag.

Holmes, 33, filed for sole legal custody of Suri, 6, and plans to live in New York while Cruise, 50, keeps his main residence in LA. Reports claim the pair's split was precipitated by Katie's displeasure with Suri being raised in the Church of Scientology. Peoplemag reports: "Cruise may be open to Suri living primarily with Holmes ... but any agreement would have to include generous visitation for Cruise, a source saying, 'There's no world where Tom won't be seeing Suri.'"
