• Tobey Maguire's ex Jennifer Meyer has requested joint legal and physical custody of their children
  • Court papers reveal that Meyer filed for divorce on Oct. 15 in Los Angeles
  • Maguire and Meyer tied the knot in 2007 and share two children together

Tobey Maguire’s ex-wife Jennifer Meyer has asked the court to order joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s two children. The latest development comes a few days after it was reported that Meyer filed for divorce from the actor in Los Angeles.

Court documents revealed that the jewelry designer is asking for joint custody of their kids, 13-year-old Ruby and 11-year-old Otis, indicating that the split is courteous, Page Six reported. The documents obtained by the media outlet disclosed that Meyer filed for divorce on Oct. 15.

The papers also explained that the court processed all the paperwork on Oct. 28.

Meyer said in the documents that she hopes to work out all other matters, including child support, property and other assets, in mediation with the “Spider-Man” star.

The documents also revealed that Meyer cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their separation when she formally filed for divorce, The Blast reported.

Maguire and Meyer met in 2003 and tied the knot in 2007 in an intimate wedding ceremony. The two announced their split in 2016 after nine years of marriage.

At the time, the exes issued a statement to People and explained that they will continue to co-parent their children.

“After much soul searching and consideration, we have made the decision to separate as a couple. As devoted parents, our first priority remains raising our children together with enduring love, respect, and friendship,” Maguire and Meyer wrote.

Despite the split, the two have remained friends. In June, the jewelry designer wrote a touching tribute to Maguire, praising him for being the “best baby daddy” to their children and calling him her “best friend.”

“To the best baby daddy. All [I] can say is no matter what happens in life, to relationships etc... choose a dad for your kids that you can count on forever. This one right here is my best friend and the greatest dad to our babies. I’m sorry Tobey, I know you hate Instagram, but every once in a while I like to brag to everyone about how special you are,” Meyer wrote alongside the photo of them with their children.
