Zooey Deschanel has filed for divorce from Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard, two months after the first couple of Indie pop announced their “amicable” split.

The “New Girl” actress filed two days after Christmas citing the time-honored “irreconcilable differences,” according to court documents obtained by TMZ. They separated on Halloween.

The couple wed in September 2009 and have no children.

Deschanel and Gibbard have not spoken publicly about their split, though one imagines it will play some role in their next musical projects. Since the breakup, the She & Him singer has continued to promote her Fox show and Web site, Hello Giggles, on Twitter. She also played the cutest duet ever with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Gibbard will spend the first half of 2012 touring overseas with his band.

The 31-year-old singer/actress also filed an income and expense declaration with the divorce filing that reveals she has a lot of moola in the bank, is very charitable and does not have any credit card debt. Is there really anything cuter than fiscal responsibility?
