Tom Cruise
and Katie Holmes have called a temporary truce while their lawyers try to negotiate a full divorce settlement ... TMZ has learned.

Sources very familiar with the situation tell us ... there are NO immediate plans for either side to go to court. There will be no court hearing Monday, Tuesday or in the foreseeable future, unless the negotiations fall apart.

Sources tell us the lawyers are negotiating child custody, visitation, child support and a property settlement.

We're also told the whole settlement could be ratified in New York if all goes well.  In other words, there may not be a move by Tom's camp to transfer the case to California, where judges are more likely to award joint custody.

One source described the emotional state of the negotiations as "calm."

Katie was spotted this morning in NYC, heading into her lawyer's office.

People - we all believe something. So you can hate the beliefs Tom may have, but seriously it is one part of the man. I love that we as individuals feel the need to "take" a side based on one piece of information, and bash a man over that single piece. I do not share his believes, but I will say he has shown more character thus far in the current situation then Katie. From what I have noticed in videos she appears to have a pompus air about her since all this has started. Those of you who will not doubt stay "confidence" please spare me as it is more "pride" and "I've got the attention", and "huh I stuck it to him". I think if she was really trying to protect Suri at this point she wouldn't be dragging the poor kid out and about where there will no doubt be a media frenzy, that just goes to show me her real motives......and it doesn't sit well with me. A protective parent, who isn't out for the glory, but to protect her child would be creating a "calm" environment for that child in such a difficult and confusing time - just saying.

I know from experience that $$$$ doesn't mean everything if you're connected with a control freak! I hope Katie won't buckle with regard to any smooth-talking Tom Cruise attempts. Smooth-talking is just a mind game that will cause even more tightening of his reins on her life!
