Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson is officially a single woman.

A judge signed off on a legal dissolution of her marriage from Brandon Blackstock in early August, PEOPLE confirms, a year and three months after Clarkson filed for divorce.

In July, Clarkson, 39, requested that the judge declare her legally divorced in legal documents obtained by PEOPLE. Clarkson reasoned that she and Blackstock, 44, "both deserve the opportunity to build a new life."

In August — after an L.A. County judge ordered her to pay Blackstock 200,000 a month in spousal and child support — a source told PEOPLE she's "more than fine."

"She is doing great and facing forward," a first source told PEOPLE at the time. "She's enjoying the fact that she has the kids for the vast majority of the time and is enjoying time spent with them."
