Nevermind, Jennifer Garner And Ben Affleck Are Divorcing
Well, a little over a month since reports came out that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were putting their divorce proceedings on hold, the couple have now officially filed for divorce. Aw shucks.
Two years since the two have separated, it looks like there’s no turning back now. On Thursday, the parents of three filed their documents together and cited irreconcilable differences. According to reports and the Associated Press, both are seeking joint legal and physical custody of their kids, Samuel, almost 5, Seraphina, 8, and Violet, 11.
There’s also a financial settlement in the works. However, any earnings made by Affleck and Garner will remain their own since they separated. As they announced the separation in June 30, 2015, this could affect the settlement.
Despite looking like things were going well to outsiders, Garner and Affleck never planned to get together. A source stated that the pair “always planned to divorce” and although it’s a sticky situation, another source told PEOPLE that the filing is “super amicable.”
Even though the divorce is on the horizon, the exes are still making the co-parenting thing work. Affleck recently complete a stint in rehab for alcohol and even on the morning he finished the rehab, he was back taking his kids to school with Garner.
