Los Angeles (CNN) -- Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes "amicably settled" their divorce just two weeks after Holmes filed for it, an attorney told CNN Monday.

While no details of their agreement are public, the former couple said they are "working together" in the "best interests" of their young daughter.

In the June 28 divorce filing, Holmes sought sole custody of 6-year-old Suri. Holmes and Cruise have been married 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."

Another one of Holmes' attorneys, Allan Mayefsky, said the divorce was "amicably settled."

"The terms of the settlement are confidential," Mayefsky said. "The parties have issued a joint statement regarding this resolution. We will have no further comment."

That statement, prepared jointly by Cruise, 50, and Holmes, 33, was sent to CNN by Cruise publicist Amanda Lundberg.

"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."

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes's divorce generated renewed interest in The Church of Scientology. Former Church members describe their experience on "Piers Morgan Tonight," Monday at 9 ET/PT.
