Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have finalised their divorce, following Ben’s recent rehab stint.

The news comes just days after Ben confirmed that he had completed 40 days in rehab by releasing an emotional statement on Instagram.

Jennifer and Ben, who wed in 2005, filed for divorce in April 2017 – but they have been separated since June 2015.

The couple have three children together – Violet, 12, Seraphina, nine, and Samuel, six.

Earlier this week, TMZ reported that Jennifer had filed new documents to speed up the divorce process.

The actress asked that the divorce be taken out of the court system, as she wanted the case to be handled by a private judge, who could move it along faster.

Sources told the outlet that Jennifer didn’t want to speed up their divorce before Ben sought treatment for his alcoholism, because she didn’t want to deal with custody issues while Ben was still drinking.

Ben and Jennifer seem to be on good terms now, as the pair were recently spotted with their kids attending a church service in Los Angeles.
