Sophie Turner Drops Custody Lawsuit Against Joe Jonas
Sophie Turner has dropped the custody lawsuit against her estranged husband, Joe Jonas. According to court documents obtained by People magazine on Wednesday (January 17), a US judge approved to dismiss the filing after both stars signed a consent plan that was approved by a UK judge last week.
As we previously reported, the Game of Thrones alum, 27, sued the musician for “wrongful retention.” She alleged that Jonas, 34, was withholding their daughters’ passports and not allowing them to return to her home country of England. The former couple share Delphine, 18 months, and Willa, 3. The complaint against the Jonas Brother began in September following the announcement of their split. Turner’s suit called for “the immediate return of children wrongfully removed or wrongfully retained,” with the actress’ legal team asserting the “wrongful retention.”
Getting it Right
The former couple has now agreed to dismiss the filing “with prejudice, and without attorneys’ fees, expenses, costs and/or disbursements awarded to either party.” Prior to the dismissal, Joe released a statement disputing her claims, saying he believed he and his former partner had an agreement with their co-parenting plan and how to share their daughters’ time. At the end of September, the two reached a temporary agreement to keep their daughters in New York City, according to documents filed in New York.
The interim consent order stated that Turner and Jonas were ordered to keep their kids in the Southern and Eastern districts of New York. After the interim consent order, the former couple then reached a temporary custody agreement for their two daughters in October. They then released a joint statement after getting things going: “After a productive and successful mediation, we have agreed that the children will spend time equally in loving homes in both the US and the UK.” The statement concluded: “We look forward to being great co-parents.”
