Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner


It's been more than eight months since Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced they had made the "difficult decision to divorce" after 10 years of marriage.

However, no divorce documents have been filed in Los Angeles, where they live, and the two have since the split been spotted together many times, usually with their kids—daughters Violet, 10, and Seraphina, 7, and son Samuel, 4. In addition, the whole family still lives together at the same property.

"They will continue to live in the house together and have no plans to change that arrangement," a source told E! News exclusively.

"They are in a really good place right now," the source said. "A lot of the dust has settled and they have become accustomed to their new life, which is separate but together in a lot of ways. They continue to make the family their first priority and they have always been on the same page about that."

A month after Affleck and Garner's breakup announcement, the actor was linked to his children's 28-year-old nanny. He has denied anything romantic went on between them. She no longer works for the family. Garner recently broke her silence on the split and the nanny in a bombshell interview with Vanity Fair.

"We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny," the actress said. "She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce."

"Now that the Vanity Fair article is out, neither of them feel the need to talk about the past or the divorce," the source told E! News. "They feel like everything has been answered and they just want to move forward. There is a lot of love between them. They don't know exactly what it's going to look like, but for now what they are doing is working for the family."

Meanwhile, the two have been taking turns caring for the kids while the other works. Garner recently worked on the movies The Tribes of Palos Verdes and Wakefield. Affleck is preparing to travel to promote Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is set for release on March 25.

"Jennifer has been working the last few weeks and they are trading off with the kids," the source told E! News. "Whoever isn't working is spending the majority of time with them. When they have time off, they are doing things as a family together. Ben is about to embark on a major press tour and will be traveling while Jen holds down the fort."

"They have a good system in place," the source said. "Everyone is happy right now."
