Sandra Bullock’s split from Jesse James will likely be a clean break, a legal expert tells PEOPLE, and the actress’s new son Louis won’t be an issue in the case.

Bullock filed for divorce on April 23 in Austin, Texas, where she maintains a home and discreetly used her backwards initials “B.A.S.” and James’s initials “J.J.G” on the paperwork.

“Her legal filing indicates that both she and Jesse are seeking an amicable settlement and that there will be no children at issue in this divorce,” says Daryl Weinman, an Austin-based family law attorney who’s not involved with the case. “I wouldn’t be surprised if this divorce wraps up quietly within two months.”
