Lawyers for Mel Gibson and Robyn Gibson just had a quick conference call with the judge in their divorce case and they said they are close to a settlement.

Mel's lawyer, Lance Spiegel, has submitted a property settlement proposal to Robyn's attorney, disso-queen Laura Wasser.

Wasser said she's mulling it over with Robyn and is "optimistic."  Wasser says she should have an answer next month as to whether Robyn will accept Mel's property settlement offer.

Sources tell us ... the divorce is "amicable" and there's no real fight over how the property in their nearly 30-year marriage will be divided.
