When Tia Mowry announced that she filed for divorce from Cory Hardrict last year, fans of the famous couple were shocked. "These decisions are never easy, and not without sadness," the Twitches actress wrote at the time. "I am grateful for all the happy times we had together. I want to thank my friends, family, and fans for your love and support as we start this new chapter moving forward in our lives," she added after mentioning their plans to co-parent their two children, Cairo and Cree.

That was six months ago, and now, Entertainment Tonight reports that the legalities have been finalized. Documents obtained by the outlet reveal that Hardrict and Mowry "entered into a written agreement regarding their property and their marriage or domestic partnership rights, including support." The 44-year-old requested joint legal and physical custody with her ex last October. She also asked for a termination of the court's ability to award spousal support based on their premarital agreement.

Since initially filing, both exes have been mostly cordial to one another and even spent last Christmas together. "Family will ALWAYS be Family. Merry Christmas from our family to yours," Tia captioned her commemorative Instagram post. Mowry revealed ahead of Valentine's Day on Twitter that she's confident in her ability to secure another relationship. "I know love will find me again," she affirmed on February 10. Surprisingly, she hasn't publicly been linked to anyone else since announcing her breakup.

The former child star recently opened up about her feelings to her followers, writing, "If I'm being completely honest with you all, these last few months have been some of the hardest of my life," in the caption of some sweet photos with her little ones. "There's no telling what direction life is going to take you and nothing but one thing is ever certain: the love I have for these two," she additionally noted.
