Sources connected with Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller tell TMZ now that Charlie's criminal case in Aspen is over, the deck has been cleared to begin divorce proceedings.
As we first reported back in June Charlie and Brooke signed a 43-page agreement -- obtained by TMZ -- that lays out who gets what in the event they divorce ... and Brooke has made it clear ... she's not going to get less than Denise Richards.
Brooke gets $55,000 a month in child support, plus various other expenses, but, according to the docs, "under no circumstances shall the child support paid by Charlie for Bob and Max be less than the child support paid by Charlie to Denise Richards for Sam and Lola."
Brooke waives spousal support but still cashes in. In addition to getting a 50% cut on the baby photos the couple sold to Getty Images, Brooke gets several bank accounts and a lump sum parting gift of $757,689.70.
Charlie gets the house but has to buy Brooke out to the tune of around $1 million.
Charlie also gets to keep his $5.6 mil watch collection.
According to the docs, signed by both Charlie and Brooke, they will get joint legal custody of their two kids. Brooke gets primary physical custody and Charlie becomes a weekend dad, getting the kids on the first, third and fifth weekends of the month from Saturday at 10 AM until Monday at 10 AM.
At the end of the document, Brooke agrees "not to disclose to any media sources personal information relating to Charlie's sexual affairs or alleged drug usage." For his part, Charlie agrees not to talk about Brooke's alleged drug use.
Sources say they were holding off until Charlie's Aspen assault case was over, fearing a divorce would give prosecutors ammo in the case.
We're told almost from the beginning, Brooke has always wanted nothing to do with the case. And now that the case is over, we're told divorce docs will soon follow.

Amidst reports that she's broken off her engagement, Bristol Palin grabbed her son Tripp and did some quality bargain shopping at a Target store in Wasilla, Alaska the other day.
With Levi Johnston nowhere in sight, Bristol and a female companion picked up some necessities -- water, milk, etc -- and loaded it up into her Volkswagen Jetta on Friday.
According to reports, Bristol isn't the only Palin who drives a Jetta -- Sarah has bragged about owning one in fire-engine red.
