Dylan McDermott is looking to make a permanent break.

Nearly eight months after the duo announced they had separated, the actor filed for divorce from wife Shiva Rose Friday, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.

According to the petition obtained by E! News, the actual date of separation is listed as March 5, 2007.

Interestingly, McDermott, who spent seven years playing lawyer Bobby Donnell on The Practice, is tackling this case "in propria persona." In other words, he's acting as his own attorney.

He and Rose tied the knot on Nov. 19, 1995. They have two daughters, 12-year-old Collette Blu and 2-year-old Charlotte Rose. McDermott is seeking joint custody.
