Sofia Vergara asked the court to ensure her prenup is upheld, and requested she be able to retain all the assets she acquired before, during and after her marriage to Joe Manganiello, People reports.

Manganiello filed for divorce July 26, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their marital breakdown, according to People. New documents cited by the outlet show Vergara is working to safeguard her assets, such as jewelry, artwork and “other personal effects” she wants to keep in her possession. Vergara also considers her earnings to be “assets” and is requesting they remain protected, according to People.

Vergara and Manganiello were marred for seven years before splitting. They released a joint statement to announce their marriage had dissolved, according to Page Six.

“We have made the difficult decision to divorce,” they said in their statement, the outlet reported. “As two people that love and care for one another very much, we politely ask for respect of our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives.”

The couple separated July 2, according to Manganiello, who also reportedly noted they had a prenup.
