The divorce between former New York Giants kicker Josh Brown and the woman he admitted he had "been physically, emotionally and verbally" toward was finalized late last month, according to court documents obtained by USA TODAY Sports.

Molly Brown will receive $15,000 a month for two years ($360,000 total) per the terms of the divorce that became final on Dec. 28. Josh Brown also must pay $4,000 per month in child support for their 6-year-old daughter.

According to their King County (Wash.) Superior Court dissolution decree, Molly Brown does not have a restraining order against her former husband.

TMZ was the first outlet to report the divorce had been finalized. 

The two had been separated since King County Sheriff's deputies responded to their home in May 2015 for a domestic violence situation. Josh Brown was arrested, although prosecutors did not pursue the case.

Brown was suspended by the NFL for the fist game of the season before details of the sheriff’s investigation were released in October. Afterward, Brown was placed on the commissioner's exempt list before he was released by the Giants.

The NFL also announced it had re-opened its investigation into the incident.

"I have taken measures to get help so that I may be the voice of change, not a statistic,” Brown said in a statement in October. “It is important to share that I never struck my wife, and never would. Abuse takes many forms, and is not a gray area.”
