Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes

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.

I doonnn"tttt knowwwww about this child custody thing here. I can just see how it will be cool for a couple months of him getting her for visits and then bringing Suri home. One day he will get her and possibly not bring her home and swoop her off to some island where the US can do nothing to get her and nothing to him for taking her. Hhhhmmmm - I wouldn't trust him. He is just being to calm and cool. Something is up Mr. Mapother - what is it?

I really hate that Katie is being portrayed as a victim, she knew what she was getting into. She still married him and had a child with him. I don't ever think one parent should get sole custody when both parents are able to be a parent. I live in an Orthodox neighborhood and I am not viewed as an equal to them, so to use his region like this is not right. We have all seen specials about ex Amish or really ex anything, She is really starting to get on my nerves. Why be so secretive and now she is listening to another MAN, her Dad. Can't this woman think for herself? I think she is a weak and immature girl, also why can't she let her daughter walk? She is photographed late at night all the time too, is that Tom's fault too? She wants HIS money to start her fashion line and to be FREE but not FREE of his MONEY>>> Stop playing VICTIM and be a woman.

I agree . . if he's smart he will act accordingly. Calmly and dignified for the sake of their daughter. We all certainly don't know why their marriage failed, but I do know this NEVER mess with a mother and her child. EVER. And, NEVER underestimate anyone. Smart girl. Love it.

Why does this all sound so "orchestrated "? This divorce. Personally, this just seems like their last attempt for P.R. before ending it. Ironic that Katie stated in her divorce filing that their marriage ultimately had been over for 6 months prior to the date of filing. That would make it exactly at their 5 yr. mark! So, I sense a contract here. Of course, it wouldn't seem right for Tom to file for divorce, due to his all so dramatic infatuation, he made people believe he had on Katie Holmes. Him ending the marriage at the 5 yr. mark would just prove the hoax claims true. Plus, let's remember he has ended all his relationships when the woman had turned 33, Katie is 33. Just saying. Anyways, we the people deserve a juicy and dramatic separation, after having to witness all their forced fed PDA they put upon us these last 5 yrs.! Can I get an amen to that?

Tom Pathetic Cruise has no choice. He's got other skeletens in his closet with his other ex-wives. He doesn't want his ENTIRE reputation ruined, and I already think it's too late for that. Katie: GOOD FOR YOU FOR PLAYING IT VERY VERY SMART. You are kicking his sorry ass. Too bad he thinks he's smarter than everyone else in the world (which you can tell from seeing his Scientology video). He has no choice but to kiss up right not and get it over with.

If this is true - and I really, really hope it is - it means that the media have been making everything else up as they went along. ;).

Can't wait to see the carnage. I hope she gets sole custody, cause look how well 50/50 custody worked for Nicole.

I wager a few weeks pay that the top dogs in Scientology told one of their best pupils that you better settle this thing as soon as possible so that we can get it off the front page, the heat of the publicity that it brings is too much for them to handle without killing Katie and kidnapping Suri.
