LOS ANGELES — Court records show Will Arnett has filed for divorce from Amy Poehler more than 18 months after the comedians announced their separation.

Arnett filed a divorce petition in Los Angeles Superior Court on April 8 citing irreconcilable differences. His filing seeks joint custody of the pair's two sons, who are ages 3 and 5.
