It’s about time! Nearly two years after announcing their split, Jennifer Garner has finally filed for divorce from Ben Affleck, officially pulling the plug on her marriage of ten years to the actor.

According to reports, the famous couple were “super amicable” as they filed the docs together. Jen and Ben both want joint legal and physical custody of their three children, Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, almost 5

A source reveals, “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 duo originally announced their plans to divorce in June of 2015 in a joint statement, saying “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”
