(CBS/AP) Zsa Zsa Gabor's daughter and husband are attempting to settle a dispute over the 95-year-old actress' care and finances outside of court, attorneys told a probate judge Wednesday.

The two sides will meet with a retired probate judge in late June to try to mediate their issues without the need for a lengthy court fight.

Gabor's daughter, Constance Francesca Hilton, has asked that a conservatorship be created to oversee the actress' medical care and ensure that her assets are being properly protected. The petition is opposed by Frederic von Anhalt, Gabor's husband of 25 years and her caretaker.

Hilton appeared for a brief scheduling hearing Wednesday but did not speak. Attorneys said they would report the results of the mediation at a hearing on July 11.

Hilton and von Anhalt have fought for years and each has accused the other of financial mismanagement related to Gabor's finances. Hilton asked to be named her mother's conservator in March and expressed concern that Gabor isn't being properly treated.

Von Anhalt has said he is providing the best possible care for his wife, but that expenses are outpacing her income and that he needs to sell her mansion.
