Jennie Garth & Peter Facinelli’s Divorced Finalized: Read The Shocking Terms

Unlike every other Hollywood divorce, Jennie and Peter were able to come to a very amicable agreement. They both declined spousal support, and have decided to equally fund a joint bank account to take care of their children and their children’s education. Jennie and Peter must trust each other a lot, because they both have full access to the account!

The pair also agreed to share 50/50 joint custody of their three daughters, Luca Bella, 15, Lola Ray, 10, and Fiona Eve, 6. Jennie and Peter also refused to sign a formal custody arrangement because they don’t believe they’ll need it.

An amicable divorce like Jennie and Peter’s is definitely a rarity in Hollywood!

Peter Facinelli & Jennie Garth Take Co-Parenting ‘Day By Day’

In an interview with PEOPLE magazine, Peter and Jennie revealed the secret to raising their children together in the midst of a divorce.

“When you’re going through [co-parenting] yourself, you have to take it day by day,” Peter explained on Oct. 11. “Co-parenting takes two great parents to put their differences aside and focus on the children, and that’s what I’ve been doing.”

Jennie also told the magazine that she and her ex are “great parents together,” even though they are divorcing.

They are a part of the few people who can act like grown ups when it comes to divorce and rearing their children together. And to be completely honest, I expected nothing less from them.

I saw an interview where she said she was blind-sided by his cheating/divorce request and basically his behavior was so douchey. Of course he is singing her praises look at all the money she is saving him.
Any civility is a tribute to her not him. He got everything he wants and she has to start over.

I heard there was no infidelity. Where is this interview you speak of? I’d like to read that.
I heard she said she was blindsided by the divorce, but there was no mention of cheating on either of their parts.
I’d also heard she was a bit jealous of his popularity and didn’t really know how to handle it.
Don’t know if any of that is true, but whatever happened I’m glad they were able to settle things nicely for the sake of the children.

Good for them for putting their kids first....

I commend them for acting so maturely, that’s not always an easy thing when hurt feelings are involved. Sadly in most cases of divorce when children are involved the children suffer the most because parents are so self involved at the time.
My parents had an a fairly amicable divorce and once the hurt feelings were dealt with and they both moved on they were able to maintain a very close friendship, it helps to eliminate the guilt children feel and helps gives them stability if their parents can get along at the most trying times….

As someone who has worked in the family courts I can tell you that the majority of couples ending marriages and relationships are so self-centered, angry and resentful towards their partners they are incapable of putting their children first. Then there are couples like the Facinelli’s who are mature, responsible adults who clearly ARE putting the best interest of their children first. I will tell you these are the children who go on successfully with their lives. That even though the sadness continues forever over the loss of their “Family” having two committed parents in their corner, working together to parent their children gives them equal opportunities as children who are in intact families. It is not divorce that damages children, it is how their parents handle the ending of the relationship that spills over and affects the children. If you put your childrens needs first, helping them to adjust to the end of their world as they knew it, and not their choice, putting your energy into positive things is theb est thing you cando for your children and each other. Congrats to them, they should teach this to their colleagues in CA.

They always seemed like two good people to me.
There marriage just didn’t work. They saw this and felt there was no way to reconcile their problems.. Now they’re working towards raising the children together.
I wish them the best.

Back a few months ago when Peter was co hosting on live with Kelly Ripka. I remember him saying that Jennie will always have a place in his heart and if it wasn’t for her they wouldn’t had such beautiful and wonderful daughters, and that co parenting was important.

Good for them! Their children will be better off because their parents are behaving like rational human beings. They both seem like decent people.

Why are they even getting a divorce, they seem like such a great team & there is obviously mutual respect & trust there. People really do tend to just give up on things rather than work on them nowadays, I guess we really are in the era of instant gratification:-(
