Denise Richards, Lola, Sam

Charlie Sheen may have been the one who called this morning's emergency custody hearing, but he isn't the only one who wound up gaining ground.

"I'm very happy with today's outcome," Denise Richards exclusively told E! News after the hearing.

Sheen, 42, was not required to attend the proceedings and declined to make the trek downtown, but he was also apparently just fine with what went down in his absence.

"Charlie was very grateful and more than pleased with the court for how they dealt with the custody issues regarding his two children this morning," the actor's publicist, Stan Rosenfield, told E!

His attorneys were present and accounted for after filing an ex parte motion in his ongoing custody battle with Richards. The motion was quickly sealed.

The two sides briefly met with Los Angeles County Court Commissioner Harvey Silberman in chambers before all parties emerged and Silberman announced he would keep Sheen's motion conditionally sealed until Aug. 1.

"Today's proceedings had to do with custody isues regarding their children...and we were very pleased [Silberman] gave us the time he did," Richards' attorney, Neal Hersh, told E! News. "And Denise is very, very happy with the commissioner's decision.

"This will hopefully move things forward in a positive way for the benefit of the kids, which has always been and remains the primary concern."

While the exact nature of Sheen's motion remains unclear, it is likely tied to Sheen's revelation on Wednesday that their two daughters failed to show up for a planned visitation.
