Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are now legally uncoupling.

But just as they so amicably and forthrightly announced on March 25, 2014, that they were separating after 10 years of marriage, so goes their divorce filing.

A source confirms to E! News that Paltrow and Martin's business managers have been working out the terms of their split with regard to their assets and custody of their children, and when the divorce paperwork is filed today, the friendly exes will have already signed off on the terms.


Paltrow and Martin will be citing irreconcilable differences as the reason they split up.

Since introducing the idea of "conscious uncoupling" to the lexicon, the parents of 10-year-old daughter Apple and 7-year-old son Moses have been schooling the world on the subject of amicable breakups, spending tons of time together as a family (they were all together in the Bahamas right after the split announcement went out!) and even supporting the other when it comes to dating. The four of them most recently vacationed in Cabo San Lucas over the kids' spring break

Asked about Martin's burgeoning relationship with Jennifer Lawrence, Paltrow gave her ex's judgment the proverbial thumbs-up back in January.

"I respect him as the father of my children," she said on The Howard Stern Show. "It's his decision…He wouldn't be with someone who isn't great."

When they revealed that they had separated on Gwyneth's Goop site, Paltrow and Martin memorably said in a joint statement:

"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."

And so they have.
