Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner Officially File for Divorce
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are on the same page, even as they divorce. The former couple officially filed divorce papers on Thursday in a coordinated and unusual show of solidarity.
They both filed near identical paperwork simultaneously and they both cited in pro persona, a legal term that means they are representing themselves instead of using a lawyer.
- According to a legal expert that People magazine contacted, the move will keep their divorce private and signal that it is friendly and mutual. The experts add that they are both likely consulting lawyers behind the scenes.
- A source tells People that L.A. divorce attorney Laura Wasser is working with the couple, who are in mediation. Wasser has handled the divorces of Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp and Kim Kardashian.
- Meanwhile, Affleck, 44, is looking to move out of the guesthouse of the couple’s Pacific Palisades property that he has been living in since their separation, which was announced two years ago, Us Weekly reports. Garner, 44, and Affleck have continued to co-parent their three children — Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5 —and have taken vacations together as a family.
- An insider tells Us that Affleck is looking for a home nearby so they can continue to co-parent closely. They are reportedly negotiating joint custody in addition to ironing out their financial agreement.
