The Hollywood couple sparked reunion rumors continuously throughout those two years, but finally put an end to it all.
Their divorce filing comes a few weeks after Affleck confirmed he spent some time in rehab.
The Los Angeles Superior Courthouse PIO says the couple requested joint legal and physical custody of their children. Since their petition and response were filed together, the pair most likely agreed on everything and coordinated the process.
Unlike some Hollywood couples, these two have remained friendly during their separation and continue to co-parent their children.
An insider told E! News, "They are co-parenting. The most important thing in all of this are their kids."
Two years ago, the couple stood united while they announced their separation in a joint statement.
"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," the statement read. "This will be our only comment on this private family matter. Thank you for understanding."
They may no longer be romantically linked, but they will always be in each other’s lives. Both Ben and Jen have spoken highly about each other after their split on multiple occasions.
"Jen is a superhero mom. She is an amazing mother and I'm really lucky to have her as a partner to co-parent these kids with," Ben shared. "We try our best, we put them first and that's what we do."
"We are definitely a modern family," Jennifer added in a separate interview with NBC's Today show. "We're doing really well."
The divorce is not final yet. They still have to negotiate a financial settlement between the two. According to TMZ, they expect to have it all finalize within the next six months.
