Chef Ben Ford and his wife Emily Ford have reached a settlement in their divorce, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

Per the documents, it appears the couple entered into a written agreement privately including regarding child support. Emily, 44, asked for a default judgment to be entered based on that agreement, which settled the dissolution of marriage. Neither party will receive spousal support, according to the documents.

Ben, 57, is one of actor Harrison Ford’s sons from his marriage to his first wife, illustrator Mary Marquardt.

Per a court petition obtained by PEOPLE in November, Emily filed for divorce from the chef citing “irreconcilable differences.” Ben and Emily, who wed in 2009, have been separated since February 2022.
