He's the same attorney he used in his bitter divorce from Nicole Kidman a decade ago.
"I would hope that it's not a contentious matter," Cruise's longtime litigator, Bert Fields, told the LA Times. "I know Tom is not a particularly contentious person."
When asked whether there was a prenup agreement, Fields -- who has long handled much of Tom's legal work but is not directly involved with the divorce proceedings -- said, "I can't comment on that. It will all come out."
Katie filed for divorce on Thursday in New York and is represented by New Jersey-based attorney Jonathan Wolfe.
She's asked for sole legal custody and primary physical custody of six-year-old Suri.
As we've exclusively reported, Tom is planning to file in California and attempt to get the proceedings moved there.
