An insider tells Us that the pair and their three children — daughters Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and son Samuel, 3 — are spending time in the Bahamas, where they also have a home.

"They got the kids out of L.A. as soon as school was out," the source tells Us. "[The Bahamas] is a place they’ve been going to for years that’s very private and special for their kids. When either of them have had work commitments they have been leaving to go fulfill them." (As previously reported, Affleck will attend San Diego's Comic-Con with his Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice costars on July 11.)

The Gone Girl actor, 42, and Garner, 43, confirmed to Us on Tuesday, June 30, that they are divorcing after 10 years of marriage.

"After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time," the couple said in a joint statement, one day after their 10th wedding anniversary. "This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding."

According to the source, Affleck and Garner will continue to live on the same property in L.A's posh, celeb-friendly Brentwood area, but will live in separate residences. In fact, the pair are trying to handle the situation like Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's March 2014 "conscious uncoupling” technique. Affleck, of course, dated the Oscar winner from 1997 to 2000.

"They are going to try and model their divorce like Gwyneth and Chris," the source tells Us. "They feel like they have to be mature adults for their children's sake and that they will figure out the healthiest way to co-parent. They want the kids lives to stay the same and to not have to change just because they aren't going to be married anymore."
