Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren have attended the standard four-hour parenting class required to finalize any divorce in Florida.

“The parenting plan is in the best interests of the children,” their divorce papers read. The pair have two children, Sam, 3, and Charlie, 18 months.

The court documents also say that Woods and Nordegren have signed a Marital Settlement Agreement, which typically includes terms of child support, alimony and the division of assets, and that Elin will revert to her maiden name: Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren.

As for the cause of the split, all the papers say is that they have lived separately since Woods’s November 2009 car crash and that, “the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken.”
