We guess that reconciliation isn't happening!
Jennifer Garner filed for divorce from Ben Affleck today after a two year separation, TMZ reports. The former couple filed the petition and response together without a lawyer, meaning that they coordinated their efforts. They both requested joint legal and physical custody of their three children, and they left the option of spousal support open ended.
In terms of splitting their assets, they didn't have a prenup, so all their earnings will be divided up 50/50. That's bad news for the Batman actor, as he made a lot more dough than his wife during their nearly 10 year marriage. They are still negotiating a financial settlement, but the divorce could be final within six months.
So why now?
"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," a source dished to People.
