Daredevil co-stars Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have officially filed for divorce. The news comes a month after rumours surfaced saying that the couple had decided to call off their divorce to continue working on their marriage.

According to TMZ, the co-parents want joint legal and physical custody of their children, Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8 and Samuel, 5. TMZ reports that the documents were filed together which means the move was coordinated. Apparently, they're also still in negotiations for a financial settlement.

A source told People that the filing was "super amicable" and that "they always planned to divorce despite what people said".

"If you look at their first statement it says divorce not separate," the source added. "They just did it the way they wanted to and did what was best for their kids. There was no catalyst, it was just time. Nothing has changed, they are and still will be putting their kids first."
