Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck file divorce petitions

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are formally calling it quits. Garner's petition for divorce and Affleck's response not only mirrored each other, according to TMZ, but were filed simultaneously, which suggests an amicable split.

Jennifer Garner filed for divorce from Ben Affleck just weeks after he completed treatment in a rehab center.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have officially filed for divorce, almost two years after announcing they were separating. News is sadly reporting that they filed for divorce this week, which could become final in as little as six months.

Affleck, a two-time Oscar victor, announced last month that he had recently completed treatment for alcohol addiction. "As always, he's enjoying spending time with his children and friends, and working".

'We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children.

Affleck and Garner met on the set of World War Two drama Pearl Harbour, but began their relationship while shooting the Marvel film Daredevil two years later. She said that while she was talking to her kids about the movie, they simply asked her to take them to church. They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents'. Garner and Affleck plan on doing what is best for the family.

Affleck and Garner got married in 2005 and have three children together: two daughters, 11-year-old Violet and 8-year-old Seraphina, and 5-year-old son Samuel.

No more takes. Let us leave the Pepsi ad back in the dregs of last week where it belongs.

They have spent holidays together with the kids, and they have been seen together in public.
