Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are officially uncoupled after a judge finalized their divorce, the AP reports. The judgment signed by a Los Angeles judge on Thursday provides few details, but states neither Paltrow or Martin will pay spousal support. The actress and Coldplay frontman married in December 2003 and have two children together, ages 12 and 10.

In March 2014, the pair announced they were separating and undergoing a process called "conscious uncoupling." The announcement on Paltrow's lifestyle website, goop, drew attention to the term coined by Los Angeles therapist and author Katherine Woodward Thomas, who has created a five-step "Conscious Uncoupling" online process. Paltrow filed for divorce the following month, citing irreconcilable differences. (More Gwyneth Paltrow stories.)
