Ben and Jen make divorce official

Two years after announcing their separation, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have finally decided formally end their marriage.

 

The couple, who first split in 2015, both filed the petition to end their marriage "pro per" - or without a lawyer - according to TMZ, with the 44-year-old actor's response mirroring that of Jen's in a co-ordinated effort.

TMZ adds that the "amicable" divorce filing asks for joint legal and physical custody of their three children, daughters Violet and Seraphina, and son Samuel, while leaving the request for spousal support open so a judge can determine the amount before finalising the divorce.

The outlet adds that there's no pre-nup in place, meaning everything earned during their 10-year marriage will be split 50/50, however it was Ben who earned the most during their relationship.

In even more proof that Ben and Jen are committed to a civil ending, the case is unlikely to go to court and will instead be handled by a mediator, however TMZ adds that it's believed the couple are still working through a financial settlement.

News that the former loved-up couple are formally ready to call it quits comes after speculation they had decided to give their relationship another shot.

"Jen has called off the divorce. She really wants to work things out with Ben. They are giving things another try,” a source told People last month.

"There is always a chance of reconciliation. They love each other. They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents,” another insider explained.
