Spears filed legal papers today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing "irreconcilable differences." In her petition, Spears asks for both legal and physical custody of the couple's two children, one-year old Sean Preston and two-month old Jayden James, with Federline getting reasonable visitation rights.
As for money, sources tell TMZ the couple, who married in Sept. 2004, has an iron-clad prenup. Not surprisingly, Spears is waiving her right to spousal support. She's also asking the judge to make each party pay their own attorney's fees." See the actual petition for divorce papers here.
Spears has hired powerhouse celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, who has repped a number of celebs, including Angelina Jolie, Nick Lachey and Kiefer Sutherland. We're told Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe asked Wasser to rep both of them in their split, but Wasser declined for personal reasons.

A Berlin couple has been charged with robbing the same gas station twice last weekend.
Police say 50-year-old Donald Varnum went into a Shell station on Central Street Saturday evening, holding a white box that he claimed was a bomb. The attendant handed over an undetermined amount of money, and Varnum allegedly ran off.
A state police K-9 unit tracked his scent to Route 495, but there was no sign of him. About 24 hours later, police say Varnum came back, this time with a semi-automatic pistol. He allegedly robbed the attendant and ran off again.
Police say the K-9 tracked him down near 495. They say he admitted committing both robberies. His alleged getaway driver, 50-year-old Dorothy Gazzaniga, was also arrested. Police say she also confessed. Both are charged with two counts of robbery. Article here.
When Jairo Moncada pulled up to the drive-through at Wendy's in Burbank, California, for his usual cheeseburger, fries, and soda, he knew things looked different. There was an extra lane. But the 25-year-old could not see the biggest change: The woman taking his lunch order was sitting 3,000 miles away at a computer terminal in another state, and fielding calls from Wendy's customers at drive-throughs as far away as Florida and Washington, D.C.
"I had absolutely no idea I was talking to someone in New Hampshire," Moncada said in a phone interview later that day. "Our order was ready at the window. It was really quick." It took a total of 66 seconds.
This store is one of several Wendy's restaurants around the country that have been testing the concept, and franchisees plan to expand to at least 200 stores by next spring because the initial tests are so promising. Other fast-food companies, including Burger King, Panda Express, and McDonald's, have also started routing drive-through calls to remote locations to get faster and more accurate orders and let in-store employees concentrate on making food, keeping the store clean, and ringing up sales.
Every second counts in the race to deliver food faster, and no chain takes that challenge more seriously than Wendy's, which held the top spot as the industry's speediest server for seven straight years until Checker s took first place this year, according to "The Best in Drive-thru 2006" report released last month by QSR magazine. Checker s' average order was delivered in 125.5 seconds, measured from the time the customer reaches the speaker until the bag of food is passed through the window.
That time topped Wendy's by 9.6 seconds. But at the Wendy's stores that use call centers, drive-through transactions are expected to be completed in under 90 seconds.
Already, Wendy's says the call center is paying off. Drive-through sales jumped 12 percent at the six stores that installed multiple drive-through lanes that are connected to a call center. The call-center employees, who earn about $8.50 an hour, are trained to urge customers to add items to their order and are timed on how long each call takes. Article here.
