Amy Poehler and Will Arnett have agreed to split joint custody of their two sons as they finalise their divorce.

Amy Poehler and her estranged husband Will Arnett are officially divorced, almost four years after they announced their separation.

The former Parks and Recreation actress and Will split in 2012 after nine years of marriage and the actor officially filed for divorce in April 2014.

On Friday (29Jul16), more than two years later, the estranged couple were granted a dissolution of marriage by the Superior Court of California, according to documents obtained by the Daily Mail Online.

Amy, 44, and Will, 46, have agreed to share joint custody of their two sons Archie, seven, and Abel, five, and neither party will reportedly pay child or spousal support to the other.

Amy opened up about the divorce in her 2014 memoir Yes Please, writing, "When you are a person going through a divorce you feel incredibly alone, yet you are constantly reminded by society of how frequently divorce happens and how common it has become. You aren't allowed to feel special, but no one knows the specific ways you are in pain."

She also wrote she is "beyond grateful" Will is the father of her children and although she wouldn't consider her marriage to be a "failure", she admitted the divorce process "really sucks".

Amy moved on with actor Nick Kroll, who she dated for two years before they broke up in October, 2015, while Will has been linked to a string of women including celebrity chef Katie Lee, actress Arielle Vandenberg and producer Erin David.

His Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-star Megan Fox recently revealed on U.S. chat show Conan Will regularly brought young girls to set and she would poke fun at him for their age.

"He was sort of dating a lot and every other week there was a new girlfriend and he would bring them to set," she joked. "They were progressively getting younger and younger as the weeks went on, and it got to the point where I was like, 'Buddy, I'm worried. Should I talk to craft service and make sure they have Lunchables (children snacks) for your girlfriend?"
