Los Angeles Superior Court documents show that Judge John W Ouderkirk entered a judgment on Friday, saying the couple is no longer married.

Her name was also restored to just Jolie, not Jolie Pitt.

The couple's lawyers had asked for a bifurcated judgment, meaning that two married people can be declared single before all issues in the divorce are agreed upon.

It is not clear what issues remain unresolved in the divorce, but Jolie has filed papers saying Pitt was not paying sufficient child support, which his lawyers disputed.

The 43-year-old Jolie and the 55-year-old Pitt have six children. They were married in 2014, and Jolie filed for divorce in 2016.
