Arquette filed papers in Los Angeles last week and Cox responded.
Both refused to hire a lawyer to help them fill out the legal paperwork and both state they are being represented by 'SELF', according to TMZ.com.
Sources tell the website there was no pre-nuptial agreement and the former couple has agreed to split the money earned during the 12 years the actors were together in half.
Both Cox and Arquette are asking for joint physical and legal custody of their eight-year-old daughter, Coco, and the actress wants her name legally restored to Courteney Cox.
