Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are attending mediation to make an effort to work on their messed up divorce and the custody battle. According to the New York Post, the lawyers of the soon-to-be ex-couple showed up in the federal court of Manhatten on Tuesday to attend a pretrial conference when they informed the judge that they are attending mediation together for four days, starting this Wednesday.
The lawyers mentioned that they are looking for ways to resolve a lot of issues between the pair, which includes preparing a parenting plan for both their daughters, three-year-old Willa and one-year-old Delphine.
Sophie is suing Joe for not returning their daughter’s passports, as she wanted to take them back to the UK. But Stephen Cullen, the attorney for Turner, mentioned during the court hearings that Joe claims “50-50” joint custody of their children.
The Next Trial Date Is Set After The New Year
Cullen assured the judge that “the parties are both seeing their children in a very unfettered way” even though they had a bitter breakup. After that, the judge set the trial for January 2, a win for Joe Jonas.
Richard Min, the attorney for Joe, requested to set a date next year after the completion of Joe’s tour on December 9. But Cullen wanted a date sooner as Turner “has work commitments in the UK in January.”
The lawsuit Turner filed last month claimed that they had already decided to move their family to the United Kingdom before he went and filed for their divorce on September 5. She also mentioned that Joe was holding the passport for both their kids to stop them from moving out of the United States, which Joe confirmed as well.
But he denied the allegation Tured made about abducting their kids. Last week, both of them agreed to keep Delphine and Willa in NYC while they deal with the logistics, as both of them have signed an interim order consenting not to remove their girls from the state.
