Actress, Jennifer Garner has officially filed for divorce from hubby, Ben Affleck, TMZ is reporting.
In June 2015, the couple announced that they had separated. As far as prenups go, there isn’t one, so chances are all of their earnings during the time they were married will be split 50/50, unless they agree otherwise. Safe to say that Affleck made a lot more than Garner during the marriage.
Both Jen and Ben filed pro per — without a lawyer. Her petition and his response mirror each other completely. The petition and response were filed together, which means it was coordinated. They both want joint legal and physical custody of their 3 kids. As for spousal support, they left it open, so the judge could award it before the divorce becomes final. There are strong signals the case will not be handled in court, but rather by a mediator, especially by the way the docs were filed. This is the M.O. for disso queen Laura Wasser, who has guided various celebrity couples through mediation and then has them file for divorce pro per. h/t tmz
Ben and Jen are still negotiating a financial settlement. The divorce could become final in 6 months.

Northville, Detroit doctor, Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, was charged on Thursday with performing secret (and illegal,) female genital mutilation on little girls as young a 6 years old. Muslims from across the world have the disgusting procedure performed on their daughters to reduce sexual pleasure and promiscuity.
According to documents filed in federal court, Dr. Jumana Nagarwala performed the procedure on young girls between the ages of 6 and 8 years old. A doctor in Minnesota enlisted to help investigate the crime performed an examination on the girl pursuant to a search warrant. The doctor said the girl’s genitals were not normal and observed scar tissue and healing lacerations.
