Anthony and Lopez just want what's best for their children

He filed for divorce in April but Marc Anthony is not asking Jennifer Lopez for financial support. The divorce between the Q’Viva! The Chosen judges will be civil and no custody battle will be taking place.

“The parties are working together to reach a friendly resolution that’s in the best interest of their children,” Ron Anteau, Lopez’s family law attorney, explained to PEOPLE.

Anteau spoke to PEOPLE in an effort to dispel the nasty rumors that have been circulating. According to gossip, Anthony suspected that his ex was putting away money in offshore accounts.

“He’s not seeking financial support from her in this divorce. Never has, never will,” an insider disclosed.

“This is about trying to figure out how best for two very busy parents to share their children,” the source continued.

The proud parents of twins, Max and Emme, announced their unfortunate breakup last July. The couple had been married since 2004.

When Anthony officially filed for divorce earlier this month, he cited irreconcilable differences. According to PEOPLE, the document listed the singers’ separation date as “to be determined.”

Anthony is not looking for a battle but he did request joint legal and physical custody of their 4-year-olds. He is also making sure the court denies the American Idol judge spousal support if requested.

Since ending their marriage, the former couple has successfully maintained a professional relationship for their talent competition show, Q’Viva! The Chosen.

Lopez has moved on to dating dancer Casper Smart. The tattooed 25-year-old appears in her steamy music video for her new single, "Dance Again".
