Their acrimonious divorce lasted nearly half as long as their marriage.
But on Wednesday, Anne Heche's two-year divorce battle with Coley Laffoon came to an end. Although they reached a settlement last June to end their five-year marriage, with Heche paying $3,700 a month in child support, it took another nine months to hammer out custody details and the split of their assets.
"Anne is relieved this case is over, and is looking forward to getting on with her life and career," her attorney, Daniel Jaffe, tells PEOPLE.
According to the Los Angeles Superior Court documents:
The pair will share 50-50 physical and legal custody of son, Homer, 7.
Heche agreed to pay Laffoon a $515,000 lump sum cash payment. He'll also get half of all their community property, including more than $700,000 worth of stocks and other assets.
Heche keeps her multimillion-dollar home in Vancouver, B.C.
Laffoon waived his right to claim any spousal support.

Anne Heche has offered some blue clues of the gender of her baby.
At the Boom Boom Room's Children's Gifting Wonderland in Los Angeles on January 9, the actress and her boyfriend James Tupper chose a pair of Robeez Guitar leather booties in pastel blue, a dozen blue Happy Heinys reusable diapers and a blue MiGi baby blanket .
"She told people she was having a boy," says a source about the actress, 39, who is also a mom to Homer, 6, from a previous marriage. "They were so excited to be picking out things for a little boy."
The couple met on the set of ABC's Men in Trees and began dating in 2007. They announced they were expecting in December.

"They are really thrilled," says the rep.

Anne Heche reached a settlement Friday in her contentious divorce from Coley Laffoon, agreeing to pay her ex-husband a $275,000 lump sum and $3,700 per month in child support for their 6-year-old son, court papers show.
The agreement marks a sharp reduction in the temporary $15,000-a-month support that the Men in Trees stars had been paying – but said she could no longer afford because she was out of work.
Under the settlement, Heche, 38, also will pay 75 percent of son Homer's private school tuition and half of "agreed-upon extracurricular activities" for the boy, according to L.A. Superior Court papers.

Anne Heche says she can no longer afford to pay the nearly $15,000-a-month in child and spousal support because she's unemployed after the cancellation of Men In Trees.
"I am continuing to look for work, but I have no offers pending and the impending strike by the Screen Actors Guild reduces my prospects for work even further," Heche, 38, writes in court papers.
A judge Wednesday gave her a temporary break, saying she didn't have to pay her next support payment to her ex Coley Laffoon, 34, covering the month of July. But Superior Court Judge Gail Ruderman Feuer ordered the actress to provide updated income and expense information.

Anne Heche, who is dating her Men in Trees co-star James Tupper, says onscreen love scenes are "less challenging" with a real-life boyfriend.
"Usually when you're doing a love scene with somebody you're not in love with, it’s like you kiss and you kiss and then you think, 'Oh, great.' And then they yell, 'Cut,' and you just split apart right away and act like you don't really like the person," she tells Extra.
