Adele and Simon Konecki have finalized their divorce.

A judge signed off on their divorce on Thursday, PEOPLE confirms. The former couple will share joint legal and physical custody of 8-year-old son Angelo and neither party will pay spousal support, documents obtained by PEOPLE reveal.

A representative for Adele did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

In January, the former couple filed a judgment packet with the court in Los Angeles. At the time, the document had not been entered or signed by a judge to officially dissolve their marriage.

Adele first announced their split in April 2019 following seven years together.

"Adele and her partner have separated," her representatives said in a statement to the Associated Press at the time. "They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment."

At the time, the divorce filing, obtained by PEOPLE, said that spousal support and separation of their assets and properties will be determined in mediation.
