KIM Kardashian is moving fast to put ex Kanye West behind her.
In one of her strongest statements to date, the 41-year-old filed court papers to speed up the process.
"The parties' marriage has irremediably broken down. [Kardashian] no longer desires to be married to [West]," the documents, originally obtained by PEOPLE, state.
"There are simply no compelling reasons not to grant a motion to bifurcate and terminate marital status in this case."
Shortly after she initially filed paperwork to drop "West" from her last name, word comes now the new papers ask for custody of their children, and to keep matters of property separate from her marital status.
"[Kim] has been attempting to settle this manner since she filed her Petition for Dissolution of Marriage in February 2021," The documents, which were acquired by PEOPLE, explain. [Kim] and her counsel have reached out to [Kanye] and his counsel several times in an attempt to move this case forward to a speedy and amicable resolution."
But so far, Kanye has yet to respond to the request.
In her filing, Kim continues: "Irreconcilable differences have led to the irremediable breakdown of the marriage, and there is no possibility of saving the marriage through counseling or other means.

"The continued maintenance of technical marital status between [West] and [Kardashian] serves no useful purpose, and there is no reason to maintain the legal relationship."
The last straw may have come this weekend, when a desperate Kanye begged Kim to 'run right back' to him at a benefit show.
While performing the hit song Runaway, Ye repeatedly rapped: "I need you to run right back to me” before adding: “More specifically, Kimberly.”
Just hours later on Friday, Kim filed court documents to become officially single – which is now awaiting approval from a judge.
The legal papers show the SKIMS founder requested the judge separate issues of child custody and property from her marital status, so custody and estate hearings will likely continue on for months.
But Kim wants to be legally considered a single woman, and to add insult to injury, the mom-of-four asked that "West" be dropped from her name.
A source exclusively told The Sun that the timing was not coincidental.
"Kim is furious with Kanye," a source exclusively told The Sun. "She’s asked him not to talk about them in public – but he keeps on doing it."
"She’s made a very clear statement to him by filing for legal single status."
The source added that Kanye's public gestures may not be coming from the right place, which is partly why she made this swift legal action.
"He hasn’t been seriously begging for her back. He just doesn’t want her to move on. She feels like he thinks he owns her, so she wants to make it abundantly clear … what she won’t tolerate any more."
"They have both moved on, and for her, there is no going back. She’s much happier now."
The source continued to tell us that Kim's motivations weren't related to new squeeze Pete Davidson.
"This has nothing to do with Pete, it’s about his [Kanye's] own behavior and how she’s cutting ties."
