With the last step out of the way, the divorce will be finalized with a judge's signature, which is expected in the next few days.

The couple share one child together, daughter Stella, but custody wasn't a big problem as she turned 18 last September.

Griffith, 57, filed for divorce last year citing "irreconcilable differences." This will be Griffith's fourth divorce and Banderas' second. The Oscar-nominated actress was married to Miami Vice star Don Johnson twice (in 1976 for six months and again from 1989-1996) and to Steve Bauer (1982-1987). Griffith has two children from her previous marriages. She and Johnson are parents to 24-year-old Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson, while she and Bauer have a son named Alexander.
