Heche, 38, star of the ABC drama "Men in Trees," and Laffoon, 32, had been in closed talks over custody issues.
The pair didn't discuss the orders handed down Wednesday by a Superior Court judge, but Heche said she had a "good day in court."
The couple were married in 2001. Laffoon filed for divorce Feb. 2, citing irreconcilable differences. He is seeking joint custody and more than $30,000 a month in spousal support.
