In the documents, Von Schmeling claims she and the former Drake & Josh actor separated in September 2022.
She cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for their divorce.
The couple were married for four years and share one child together, 2-year-old Wyatt.
Von Schmeling is asking for primary custody of Wyatt as well as spousal support and visitation rights for Bell.

Entertainment Tonight reports Bell and Von Schmeling had a "falling out" last week which led to Bell's brief reported disappearance.
Bell was reported "missing" in the Daytona Beach, Fla., area April 13 after he was last seen driving near the Mainland High School the night before around 9PM EST.
Bell was reported safe a few hours after the initial reports of his supposed disappearance.
"You leave your phone in the car and don't answer for the night and this?" Bell joked on Twitter amid the reports.
Bell has had trouble with the law in the past.
According to NBC, in June 2021 Bell pleaded guilty to "attempted endangering [of] children and disseminating matter harmful to juveniles."
Bell was arrested for DUI in 2015, for which he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor and spent four days in jail.
