Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have finally reached a divorce settlement

Here’s what we know…

The past year has seen more celebrity divorce announcements than we can count – Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan and Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, to name just a few.

And don’t even get us started about the ones that are still ongoing.

One divorce that has been getting finalised for as long as we can remember is that of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, who filed for divorce last year after 10 years of marriage.

The couple have remained friends since their amicable split, co-parenting their three children and even going on holiday together to keep things normal for their family. In fact, Jennifer Garner made news last week as she staged an ‘intervention’ for her estranged husband and checked him into rehab, driving him to the treatment centre herself.

This close friendship however is one of the reasons why their divorce has taken so long to be processed, with it reported earlier this month that their case was under threat of being dismissed because of the lack of paperwork, with the couple taking their time to ensure it was done right and fairly.

Garner (the petitioner of the divorce) is said to have received a third notice of a case review, warning her that until the judgment is filed and entered, a divorce cannot be finalised.

Well, it seems that the former couple has finally responded, with TMZ reporting that a property settlement had been reached, with the couple agreeing to joint custody of their three children and a fair divide of their earnings.

According to TMZ the final settlement will be signed and filed with the court once Ben has been released from rehab.
