Mary-Kate Olsen's legal team wasted little time on Monday in officially filing the paperwork for the designer to divorce her estranged husband Olivier Sarkozy.
The documents, a summons and complaint, were filed electronically with Manhattan county clerk, according to the New York Daily News.
The socialite, 33, had previously filed an emergency petition April 17 to break up the marriage, but a statewide PAUSE order due to the COVID-19 lockdown kept New York courts closed for all hearings that were not consider to be emergencies or immediately essential.
The 5ft2 beauty earlier has attempted to put in the paperwork for the split, but a judge denied the request.
The legal team for the Los Angeles native, who shot to fame as a young child in the 1980s with her sister Ashley on the show Full House, put in the paperwork on Monday as the city's courts opened up Monday.
The designer on May 12 earlier this month sought to prevent the banker, 50, from having her leave their New York City apartment.
The ex-couple initially began seeing one another in 2012, and tied the knot in November 2015.
Sarkozy has two teenage children from a prior relationship, son Julien, 18, and daughter, Margot, 16.
Last week, according to the paper, court officials said that electronic documents would be accepted following the Memorial Day weekend.
Olsen is worth an estimated $500 million and has an 'ironclad prenup' and 'business interests and fortune are protected' in the split, insiders told Us earlier this month.
