Chris Rock‘s divorce from his wife Malaak Compton-Rock has been finalized.

The former couple finalized their divorce on Monday after appearing in front of a New Jersey judge, reports TMZ.

The pair announced the end of their nearly 20-year marriage in 2014, and spent the next two years hashing out the details of their divorce settlement – including the issue of child support.

Rock and Compton-Rock were in disagreement over whether the comedian should support a child whom Compton-Rock says was raised as their own for years.

In Rock’s original divorce filing on Dec. 23, 2015, the comedian, 50, stated the couple have just two children together. However, in Compton-Rock’s counterclaim, she stated that in addition to their two children, there is a child “who has resided with the parties since before her first birthday.”

Though Compton-Rock maintained that the couple raised the child together and served as her parents, she decided to proceed with the adoption process alone once the divorce was announced.

According to TMZ, the divorce case was sealed, so details of their settlement, including child support, have not been disclosed.
