It’s official: Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting are divorced.

The two finalized their divorce on Friday, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

The actress split from tennis player Sweeting last fall, filing for divorce in September after 21 months of marriage.

The duo had signed a prenuptial agreement, and according to the documents, Sweeting, 28, will not receive spousal support from Cuoco, 30, though she will pay him $165,000 in two payments.

Cuoco will also pay for Sweeting’s attorney fees, though not in excess of $55,000. In addition to that she will also pay $9,387 for an outstanding bill Sweeting owes for legal services rendered to him in connection with the prenup.

Cuoco will also get their Tarzana, California home, as well as their Santa Barbara area beach house.

Cuoco and Sweeting wed on Dec. 31, 2013, at a fire-and-ice-themed wedding three months after getting engaged.

Shortly after they announced their split, a source told PEOPLE the tension between the two had been “noticeable.”

“You could tell the honeymoon phase had ended,” said the insider. “It seemed they were trying to work out their marriage by going on dates, but they both seemed miserable.”

In the months since the split, the Big Bang Theory star kept busy hanging out with friends, as well as participating in equestrian competitions and shooting the hit CBS series, which recently aired its 200th episode.

During an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in February, Cuoco opened up about the divorce – and her decision to cover up her tattoo of their wedding date with new ink.

“You know, it’s been rough, but things are going good,” the star said. “I’m much, much better now. I’m in a much better place than I was.”

“I had the date tattooed on my back to remind me …” she told Ellen DeGeneres, before advising, “Don’t tattoo wedding dates.”

Cuoco also hasn’t been shy about showing off her new beau, professional equestrian Karl Cook, sharing sweet Instagram posts and plenty of PDA in recent weeks.

Of the budding romance, a source recently told PEOPLE Cuoco is “really happy,” and on Sunday, the two were spotted getting cuddly in first class on a flight from San Diego to New York City.

“They looked very much like a loving couple,” an observer tells PEOPLE. “He was in the aisle seat, eyes closed and head back, and she was gently nuzzling her face into his arm.”
