Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik Finalize Their Divorce 9 Months After Announcing Split
Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik have completed their divorce.
According to court documents received from PEOPLE, her divorce decree was filed with the Los Angeles Supreme Court on June 1, when both regained individual status.
The new girl star, who adopted Pechenik's last name five years ago when they got married, was brought back after the documents on her former nickname Deschanel.
The couple have two children together - daughter Elsie, who will be 5 years old in July, and son Charlie, 3 years old - and, according to the records, share custody.
They have agreed that their individual retirement, pension and deferred compensation will not be shared.
"All retirement, pension, or deferred compensation on behalf of one party are and are each acknowledged as their only and separate property, and the other party has no right, title, or interest in them, and each indemnifies and detains the other Harmless in relation to it, "says the documents.

Deschanel (40) and Pechenik (48) met on the set of the Bill Murray comedy Rock the Kasbah. They confirmed their engagement in January 2015 and married in June. After three and a half years of marriage, they separated on January 8, 2019. Nine months later, Pechenik filed for divorce, citing "incompatible differences".
According to the divorce petition, Pechenik, a producer, requested joint legal and physical custody of their children.
Last September, they announced their separation in a joint statement.
"After many discussions and long considerations, we decided that we are better off as friends, business partners and fathers than as life partners," said a couple's representative to PEOPLE. "We remain committed to our business, our values, and above all our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time."
The duo had split up a few months before the announcement, a couple's friend told PEOPLE earlier.
"They are both very committed parents," said the source. "They have been separated for several months. They are very private and excellent parents and love their children so much and want it to go smoothly for them."

"I think we only take it here one day at a time and it's a crazy thing nobody would have predicted," he said. "But I'm happy to be with someone I love and someone so talented."
