The divorce between Sandra Oh and Sideways writer-director Alexander Payne was finalized Thursday, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

Although their marital status officially ended on Dec. 22, the former couple took more than two years to settle their finances, which is the last step in any divorce.

In March 2005, a spokeswoman confirmed to PEOPLE that Oh, 36, and Payne, 46, had "mutually decided to separate." Added the rep: "They have been together for five years and were married in [January] 2003. The couple will remain friends."

Oh filed for divorce the following month in Los Angeles Superior Court. According to her filing, she was seeking spousal support. In his divorce response, Payne sought to deny those payments.

It was the first marriage for both; they had no children together.
