The split seems to be amicable, in the documents Jacob is saying support should be paid to both parties usually indicating there is a prenup.

He is also asking to split the attorney fees.

Deschanel and her producer husband called it quits earlier this year and announced in a joint statement they were ending the marriage.

"After much discussion and a long period of contemplation we have decided we are better off as friends, business partners, and co-parents rather than life partners," they said in a statement.

Zooey, who is the sister of actress Emily Deschanel, and Jacob share two children together -- daughter, Elsie Otter Pechenik, 4, and son, Charlie Wolf Pechenik, 2.

The former couple secretly wed in 2015, shortly before welcoming Elsie into the world.

Deschanel could be seen jumping into her boyfriend's arms, and definitely looked to be having a frightfully good time.

She's already accepted in the family, as Drew has spoken about how excited he is for his brother's new romance.

Deschanel and Scott met on an episode of "Carpool Karaoke" and have been making beautiful music together ever since.
