A date has been set for the custody trial of Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner's children.
According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly, a judge ruled Tuesday (Oct. 3, 23) that the trial of the Jonas Brothers star and the Game of Thrones actresswould begin on January 2, in Manhattan. Last month, the American singer confirmed he had filed for divorce from the British actress after four years of marriage.
Since then, the former couple have started a custody battle over their two daughters, Willa , three years old, and Delphine, 14 months. Sophie Turner argued the children should join her in England, while Joe Jonas insisted they stay in the US. Legal documents reveal that their two daughters have dual American and British citizenship.
“Joe is asking for joint custody of the children so that they are raised by both their mother and father, and he is of course also OK with the children being raised in the US and the UK “, one of his lawyers said in a statement last month. In a later statement, he added: “The children were born in the United States and have spent the vast majority of their lives in the United States. They are American citizens. » Willa was born in California, while Delphine was born in Florida.
In a September filing, Sophie Turner argued that she and Joe Jonas were “not engaged, until to April 2023, to settle in a particular location,” adding: “The parties viewed England as a safe place to raise their children. »
The New York judge ruled that Willa and Delphine must remain in the United States until the custody case is resolved. Sophie Turner requested that the trial be held in an English court, a request which Joe Jonas opposed.
