Koechner and Leigh's divorce details will be sealed, but he made it clear that their back and forth is over.

"The parties have entered into a written agreement regarding their property and their marriage or domestic partnership rights, including support, the original of which is being or has been submitted to the court. I request that the court approve the agreement," Koechner's documents read.
