Posted Wednesday April 11, 2012 7:14 PM GMT

Nine months after announcing their separation, Marc Anthony is ready to make the split legal by filing for divorce from Jennifer Lopez.

According to TMZ, the famous salsa artist blames "irreconcilable differences" as the reason in the divorce papers - which were filed on Monday (April 9) at the Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Having a few strict requests within the documents, Marc has asked for joint legal custody - as well as joint physical custody - of he and Jennifer's 4-year-old twins, Emme and Max, and, in addition to sharing the children, he's asking the judge to deny any spousal support requests Jennifer may make.

On top of this, Marc is asking that each party be responsible for their own attorney fees and, although a specific date of the separation is not made clear in the documents, the split marks JLo's third divorce while it will soon be Marc's second.

The couple has continued to work together on their reality competition show, "Q'Viva!," despite the split and Marc recently told the AP, "I know it's shocking to people and I hear that a lot, It's more shocking to me that it's shocking to people."

However shocking it may be, they clearly don't have a problem working together because the program is set to return, as Marc confirms, "Absolutely. We're in the middle of setting it up now, this is a passion project. … I'm looking forward to doing it again. It's bigger than all of us. It's a movement."
