TMZ reports that the divorce was mediated by a private judge who signed off on the final paperwork earlier this month.

However, according to the outlet, the Los Angeles Superior Court system required a sitting judge to submit the case, which happened on Tuesday 28th December.

Much of the divorce delay was because of the couple’s complex property settlement agreement. While final details are confidential, TMZ reports that the couple will likely split their estimated $400 million down the middle.

The exes who married in 1986 did not have a prenuptial agreement in place.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver’s marital woes started when it was discovered that Arnold, 74, conceived a love child, Joseph Baena, now 24  with the family’s one-time housekeeper, Mildred Baena, 60.

The former California Governor hid the fact that he was Joseph’s father for 15 years. On her part, Mildred claimed the boy was the son of her now-ex-husband, Rogelio Baena, until 2011.

Joseph’s close resemblance to his father led Maria, 66, to question Mildred about her son’s paternity, who eventually confessed the truth to the NBC News correspondent. Soon after, Arnold and Maria decided to call it quits.

The “Terminator” actor shares four kids  Katherine, 32, Christina, 30, Patrick 28, and Christopher, 24 with his now ex-wife.
