Paltrow filed for divorce from Martin in April 2015, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason behind the split. According to court documents obtained by People, the two have come to an agreement pertaining to their various properties and child support. Both parties have given up their rights to spousal support.
Paltrow first broke the news of their decision to separate after 11 years of marriage on the actress’ lifestyle website Goop:
It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.

In the years since the announcement, Paltrow and Martin have seemingly maintained an amicable relationship, prioritizing the needs of their children every step of the way. Just a week ago, the pair came together to celebrate their daughter Apple's birthday. Paltrow shared a snap of herself and Martin in high spirits on the family outing.
