Marc Anthony has put the legal machinery in motion, officially filing for divorce from Jennifer Lopez.

In the petition, filed Monday with the Los Angeles Superior Court, Anthony seeks dissolution for "irreconcilable differences," along with joint physical and legal custody of the couple's 4-year-old twins, Max and Emme.

As for the money? Well, that's to be determined, as Anthony "has not yet determined the full nature and extent of his separate assets and debts," according to divorce documents obtained by TMZ. Legal costs are to be paid by the separate parties, and he's suggesting she not seek spousal support.

The couple announced their split last July, making it two failed marriages for him and three for her.

Since then Lopez, 42, has moved on with dancer Casper Smart, who celebrated his 25th birthday recently by receiving a customized truck as a gift from his lady friend. Anthony, 43, and Venezuelan model Shannon de Lima went public with a relationship earlier this year.

Anthony and Lopez continue to work together on "Q'Viva," searching for new Latin American talent.
