Jane Lynch and Lara Embry's divorce was finalized on Tuesday, after more than four years of marriage.

TMZ reports that the Glee star will have to fork over $1.2 million to her ex over a two-year period, according to Los Angeles Superior Court documents. Perhaps even more lucrative, Embry, a clinical psychologist, will also receive half of Lynch's residuals received from Glee, Two and a Half Men, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and many more shows that she produces.

The Hollywood Game Night host and Embry also will split joint bank accounts totaling $847,485, a 401K totaling $315,079 and their 2012 tax refund of $56,810. They've agreed to sell their membership to the Mulholland Tennis Club and will split the profits.

Embry will keep the couple's L.A. Yacht Club membership and keep the couple's dog, Francis.

According to the documents, the Glee star will get the home she shared with Embry, a 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid and a 2013 Audi.

Lynch announced her separation from Embry in June 2013. The following month, Lynch filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.

At the time, the actress said in a statement it had "been a difficult decision for us [to end the marriage] as we care very deeply about one another."

The 54-year-old Emmy Award-winner brushed off the financial aspect of the split when she spoke with Access Hollywood in August 2013.

"It's just money," said Lynch. California "is a half and half state, as well as it should be, so that's fine."

Lynch also said single life was treating her "fine."

The actress has been keeping busy during these difficult months, making her nightclub debut in June with a four-night stand in front of a three-piece band at the 54 Below club.
