It’s officially a wrap for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. Jennifer just filed for divorce, but everything seems to be amicable so far according to TMZ. Garner’s divorce petition and Affleck’s response are coordinated so it appears they were filed together. They both asked for joint legal and physical custody of their 3 kids. The spousal support section of the doc was left open.The former couple are currently negotiating a financial settlement. There is no prenup so Jen could get some of Ben’s earnings since he has made a ton more than her. The divorce could be final within 6 months.
The divorce comes almost two years since the split. “They always planned to divorce despite what people said. If you look at their first statement it says divorce not separate. They just did it the way they wanted to and did what was best for their kids. There was no catalyst, it was just time. Nothing has changed, they are and still will be putting their kids first.”
The couple split in June 2015, but continued to live together for the kids. “They are figuring out what to do” about their future living arrangements,” the source tells People. “For now, they are all living together. One thing they agree on — the kids will stay at the family house. Jen and Ben will focus on making things as smoothly as possible for the kids. It’s all about what’s best for them.”
Wow we are still sad to see this couple end…just like Brad and Jan all over again!
