Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez will be using a parenting coach to help them better co-parent their son.

According to new court documents obtained by PEOPLE, the actress, 57, and her ex-husband, 58, have agreed to "co-parenting therapy" with a coach to "resolve disputes and conflicts between them in an effort to successfully co-parent" their son Maceo, 9.

Both Berry and Martinez will participate in the therapy, with the two first having an individual session with the coach and then no less than six joint co-parenting sessions. Berry's partner Van Hunt, 54, will also be allowed to join the joint sessions.

After the sixth session, the coach will determine whether the therapy should continue.

Related: Halle Berry Will Pay $8,000 a Month in Child Support to Olivier Martinez After Finalizing Divorce

Last August, Berry's divorce from Martinez was finalized after almost eight years. The couple settled their divorce and custody agreement, according to documents obtained by PEOPLE.

Part of the ruling indicated that the two will share joint legal custody, with Berry agreeing to pay Martinez $8,000 a month in child support. She will also pay him "4.3% of any income she receives above $2,000,000" in additional support.

Berry will also shoulder the costs of her son's private school tuition, uniforms and school supplies, as well as any extracurricular activities. She's agreed to pay Martinez back for any of these costs from the 2023/2024 school year.

Berry and Martinez initially filed for divorce in October 2015 after two years of marriage. At the time, the pair released a statement to PEOPLE regarding their decision.

“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” they said in a joint statement to PEOPLE. “We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of what is best for our son. We wish each other nothing but happiness in life and we hope that you respect our and, most importantly, our children’s privacy as we go through this difficult period.”

Along with son Maceo, Berry is mom to daughter Nahla Ariela, 16, with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, whom she split from in 2010.

In 2021, the actress spoke with Women's Health for their December cover story, saying that her relationship with boyfriend Van Hunt had been influencing her role as a mother.

"I just feel fulfilled. I feel happy in my life romantically, as a mother, as an artist," she said of her life with Hunt. "I'm a much better mother in this circumstance than I would have been had I stayed in a romantic relationship that didn't serve me and didn't make me feel the way I need to feel as a woman."

"I'm reminded that we always have to take care of ourselves first, because I can't be a good mother for my children if I'm not fundamentally happy and feeling good about myself," she added.
