Sean Penn and Leila George have taken the unusual step of retaining a private judge in their divorce.

In court documents obtained by PEOPLE, the estranged couple asked to appoint Hon. Scott Gordon as their privately compensated temporary judge, after George, 29, filed for divorce from Penn, 61, in October.

As part of the agreement, Penn will pay to retain the private judge's services, including Gordon's $950 hourly rate and additional fees.

Having a temporary judge preside over your case is possible in California as it was set up to help the state deal with its backlogged courts. This means it will allow the couple to expedite their divorce through backlogged courts, as Gordon serves as an extension of the court.

  Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Shriver Finalize Divorce 10 Years After Separating Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver’s marriage is officially over more than 10 years after the award-winning journalist petitioned to end her then-25-year marriage to the action star and former California governor. A Los Angeles judge finalized the divorce on Tuesday, court records show. The pair had been married since 1986 when Shriver filed for divorce in 2011 after Schwarzenegger disclosed he had fathered a child with a member of their household staff years earlier. The revelation set off a tabloid frenzy, but Schwarzenegger and Shriver handled their divorce quietly and without lobbing accusations in court or in public.

"We did a COVID wedding," Penn said on Late Night with Seth Meyers. "By that I mean it was a county commissioner on Zoom and we were at the house, my two children and her brother. And we did it that way."
