Actress Laurel Holloman is a single woman again after a judge finalised her divorce.
The L Word star split from her husband Paul Machery, the father of her two daughters, in 2010 and filed divorce papers a year later (11) citing irreconcilable differences.
A judge made the divorce final on 18 June (12), according to TMZ.com.
The former couple, which married in 2002, will share joint legal and physical custody of its daughters.
The L Word star wed architect Paul Machery in 2002 and the pair has two daughters - six-year-old Lola and adopted Nala.
Holloman, who separated from Machery last year (10), has now filed divorce papers at Los Angeles County Superior Court citing irreconcilable differences, reports TMZ.com.
She is requesting joint physical and legal custody of the children but is also reportedly asking a judge to block Machery from seeking spousal support.

When Graham is ditched by her husband (Luke Wilson) she rents a clunker and heads to El Paso Texas discovering that not only her marriage but also her faith and sanity are at stake in this clever original comedy. Through Graham's odyssey the film explores issues of honor and promise while never getting preachy or pretentious. The script is funny yet never slapsticky. And though touching the films never falls prey to drippy sentimentality.
Always a bride's maid and never a bride (with knockout supporting turns in
"Boogie Nights" and "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me") Graham finally takes command in her first lead role. Her face is as expressive as it is beautiful as she gently glides from strong to comical to vulnerable. This surely won't be her last starring role. Casey Affleck comfortably fits as Graham's dopey but loyal brother who half-wittedly forgets that Jolene is his sister. When he gives her a sensual kiss she responds by reminding him "I'm married and I'm your sister." He replies "Oh yeah." Wilson restrains from playing the stray husband as a cartoon villain and gives us a cad who's hard to hate.
This was obviously a labor of love for writer/director Lisa Krueger and every bit of her passion shows onscreen. She gives the actors a spotlight to shine in paints a beautiful picture of the Texas desert and trusts the audience with her vivid characters. Krueger's graceful touch turns Jolene's warm naiveté into something refreshingly strong and hopeful.
