Af­fleck, Garner make it of­fi­cial!

The Province - - ENTERTAINMENT - — WENN

Ben Af­fleck and Jen­nifer Garner are of­fi­cially di­vorced. The for­mer cou­ple sub­mit­ted the fi­nal doc­u­ments to a Los An­ge­les County Su­pe­rior Court judge last week, and now the ac­tors are sin­gle again, ac­cord­ing to TMZ.

The judge signed off on the di­vorce on Wed­nes­day.

Ben and Jen­nifer man­aged to han­dle the di­vorce and all cus­tody mat­ters con­cern­ing their three kids with­out hir­ing a lawyer, al­though top Cal­i­for­nia le­gal ea­gle Laura Wasser served as a me­di­a­tor for the two par­ties.

Ac­cord­ing to the doc­u­ments, Af­fleck and his now-ex will share joint cus­tody of their chil­dren and they have also agreed to meet with a co-par­ent­ing ther­a­pist on a monthly ba­sis for a min­i­mum of six months.

The cou­ple did not have a prenup­tial agree­ment, and Ben and Jen agreed on a prop­erty split. They re­main close and have been spot­ted at­tend­ing church with their kids in re­cent weeks. Garner pushed ahead with the di­vorce fol­low­ing the com­ple­tion of Af­fleck’s most re­cent re­hab stay. She was also a big part of get­ting her for­mer hus­band the help he needed to com­bat an on­go­ing al­co­hol abuse is­sue.
