Ben Affleck, Jen Garner File for Divorce

TMZ reports that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have filed for divorce almost two years after announcing their separation.

The pair have been separated since June 2015, following reports that Affleck had an affair with their children's nanny. Another publication claimed that Garner was pregnant with Affleck and that she was carrying twin babies in her womb.

Both parties filed practically identical paperwork, and did it "in propria persona", meaning neither of them are represented by an attorney. Incidentally, both the stars filed the documents together as they both want their children's joint physical and legal custody.

The Hollywood star Affleck also submitted an nearly identical response to what is being described as an "amicable" split after 12 years of marriage it emerged Thursday.


'She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. They have three kids between them: Violet, Samuel and Seraphina. Since then, they committed to take the kids to church, even if Jennifer is absent.

People quoted a source as saying: "They always planned to divorce despite what people said". They got engaged in April 2005 and were married two months later in June during a private ceremony in Turks and Caicos. A week later, Affleck announced on Facebook that he had completed a treatment for alcohol addiction and praised Garner for her support while he was in rehab.

The actors announced their separation two years ago, with Jennifer filing for divorce just days after their 10-year anniversary.

"You know, we're good friends, and we're doing our best and our kids are fabulous, and we're working our best for them", the 43-year-old dad told DeGeneres last month, according to Us Weekly.
