It’s finally and officially over: Just three months after Sandra Bullock learned of her now ex-husband Jesse James‘s affairs, their divorce has been finalized as of June 24 in Austin, Tex.

The papers cite “discord or conflict of personalities” as the reason for Jesse James and Sandra Bullock‘s divorce, but despite the traumatizing effects of Jesse’s infidelities, it seems that the pair has parted ways on civil terms. Jesse is even allegedly following Sandra to Austin so that she can continue to play a role in his children’s lives!

The divorce papers state that “there is no child of the marriage,” which means that Sandra has the sole right to finalize the adoption of her 5.5 month old son Louis Bardo all on her own. But, with regards to the children from Jesse’s first two marriages — Sunny, 6, Jesse Jr., 12, and Chandler, 15 — Sandra will still be involved in the way the children are raised.

Jesse “wants his children to be happy [and] surrounded by those who love them most,” a source close to Jesse explains to People magazine. His move to Austin: “It’s all for the kids. He wants his family to be together again!”

Plus, “he wants his kids to get away from the L.A. madness,” the source adds. And he wants them to be around Sandra because “she loves the idea of raising children together, as a family.”

And even though Jesse will be close to Sandra, “it’s not like they’re talking every day, but they’re in touch about things,” says the source. “It really seems like it’s all about the kids more than anything. And it definitely doesn’t seem like [they have] long, in depth talks. More like, ‘What needs to be done’ and ‘Let’s take care of it.'”

But others do seem to believe that Jesse may actually have an underlying motive for the move of trying to win Sandra back. “He has a goal,” explains a  friend of Jesse’s. “He wants his life back, he wants some sense of normalcy and his family back .”

“Jesse is definitely not giving up hopes to get back with Sandra,” confirms another source. “He will do anything he can to get her back!”

In Austin, Jesse will work on expanding his Speed Shop business while continuing to run his West Coast Choppers and restaurant Cisco Burger in LA. He will not be expected to provide alimony to Sandra as the divorce papers read that neither side sought financial support from the other.
