Following their secret separation in 2018, the non-binary actor who starred in 'Grey's Anatomy' and 'And Just Like That' has finally sought to formally end marriage to husband Ryan DeBolt.

AceShowbiz - It's officially over for Sara Ramirez and husband Ryan DeBolt. The non-binary actor, who uses they/them pronouns and gained notable recognition for playing Callie Torres on "Grey's Anatomy", has taken the final step towards legally ending their marriage to Ryan DeBolt.

The couple, who initially separated in 2018, had managed to keep their split private until July 2021 when they publicly announced their separation.

Ramirez, 48, filed for divorce on Tuesday, June 11, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the dissolution of their union, according to court documents obtained by several news outlets. "We remain loving and supportive in how we are choosing to forge our new individual paths," Ramirez previously wrote.

The duo tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in July 2012 in New York after getting engaged in Paris the previous year. Despite the public facade of a happy marriage, they had been living separate lives for several years before formally acknowledging their split to the public.

Ramirez decided to block the court's ability to award spousal support to either party, suggesting an amicable separation where both parties cover their own legal costs. The pair also did not have any children, simplifying the legal process.

Despite the separation, Ramirez spoke highly of their ex-husband, expressing a profound sense of gratitude and respect for how they navigated their breakup with "grace and integrity." Reflecting on their relationship, Ramirez noted they had "a foundation of real love."

The filing came shortly after it was confirmed that Ramirez would not return for the third season of HBO Max's "And Just Like That…", following a controversial run as the character Che Diaz, a nonbinary comedian.

The character's presence in the series received mixed reactions, with some fans expressing discontent. "Sara was not fired because they support Palestine and the ceasefire," said a source close to the production. "Sara was fired because Che brought nothing to the show anymore... their character really held no value anymore, and fans found them annoying."

As Ramirez moves forward, they continue to encourage supporters to focus on positive actions, highlighting several charitable organizations in their separation announcement. Their public advocacy for LGBTQ+ rights and their non-binary identity continues to be influential. It's clear that while one chapter closes, Sara Ramirez remains dedicated to using their platform for progressive change and awareness.
