Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are reported to be in a "good place" after a rough few years.

We reported that they had officially divorced, but the pair have maintained a close relationship and are focused on raising their three children, Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6.

“Jen and Ben continue to work together to make their parenting as seamless as possible,” a source told PEOPLE. “They really like to do things as a family, be it outings, church, cooking or watching movies.

“They have both had some ups and downs this year, and they seem to be in a good place,” the friend adds.

Affleck and Garner split back in 2015 and Affleck has since been in and out of rehab. Garner has been extremely protective of Affleck, shielding him from the press as much as she can and even driving him to rehab.

“The support I have received from my family, colleagues and fans means more to me than I can say. It’s given me the strength and support to speak about my illness with others... Battling any addiction is a lifelong and difficult struggle. Because of that, one is never really in or out of treatment. It is full-time commitment. I am fighting for myself and my family," Affleck previously wrote on Instagram. 

Garner posted a throwback picture of her holidays.

But things seem to be turning around for the "Gone Girl" star. They recently spent Thanksgiving together.

“Jen, Ben, and the kids were in Montana for Thanksgiving,” a Garner source told PEOPLE this week, adding, “This was long planned. They always celebrate big holidays together as a family.

“The family all spent Thanksgiving together and they all cooked,” a friend of the former couple said.

Well, that's great news!
