LOS ANGELES (CNN) — Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have signed a divorce settlement hammered out by their lawyers, the attorney for Holmes told CNN Monday.

While no details of their agreement are public, the former couple released a joint statement Monday saying they are “working together” in the “best interests” of their young daughter.

Holmes filed for divorce, seeking sole custody of the couple’s 6-year-old daughter, Suri, on June 28. She has been married to Cruise for five years.

“We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life,” said Holmes’ attorney Jonathan Wolfe.

Wolfe thanked Cruise’s lawyers “for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution.”

Cruise publicist Amanda Lundberg gave CNN a statement that she said was prepared jointly by Cruise, 50, and Holmes, 33.

“We are committed to working together as parents to accomplishing what is in our daughter Suri’s best interests,” the statement said. “We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents.”
