"A parenting plan should be established, on both a temporary and final basis, which addresses all parenting issues and contains a timesharing schedule providing for frequent and continuing contact with both parties," the divorce documents stated, adding: "It is in the best interest of the minor child to have equal timesharing with each parent."

As for child support, the legal filing noted: "Both parties have the ability to provide for the support of the minor child and they should both be required to contribute to the support of the minor child in accordance with § 61.30 of the Florida Statutes."

At the time of his split from Wozniacki, McIlroy claimed in a public statement that he "wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails."

As OK! previously reported, McIlroy first met Stoll at the Ryder Cup in 2012, when the golfer's estranged wife worked as a PGA transport official.

"Erica that week was always the one that was checking us in and out. She was there at transportation, so she was always in the car park over there (by the clubhouse)," McIlroy shared in a 2019 interview.

"But yeah, it’s still cool to look around and think about that week, and obviously everything that’s happened since then. It’s pretty cool," he reflected two years into his and Stoll's now-broken marriage.
