Phoenix also wants her miscellaneous jewelry and other effects, earnings and accumulations from and after their separation in November to be confirmed as "separate property." She is asking for Affleck to pay the attorney's fees and costs.

Last March, the couple said in a statement to People, “Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix have amicably separated. They remain very close friends."
