Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner reach custody agreement after abduction claims

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have reportedly reached an agreement on the custody of their two daughters.

The former couple made headlines last week after Jonas was accused of “wrongful retention” of their children.

Jonas reportedly refused to give Turner their daughters’ passports. The actress wanted to return to England with their two children, but the singer refused, despite previously agreeing to raise their kids in the UK.

The pair have now agreed to raise their daughters in New York.

According to reports, both Jonas and Turner are banned from removing their children from New York

They have both agreed that their daughters have to stay in the Southern or East Districts. This covers New York City, Long Island, and the Hudson Valley.

In documents obtained by MailOnline, the singer and actress agreed to raise their children in the USA for now.

Sophie and Joe “have agreed to the entry of the attached proposed Interim Consent Order, without prejudice to either party’s claims and defenses, prohibiting the removal of the parties’ children from the jurisdictions… pending further order of this Court.”

The decision was made to “protect the well-being of the (children) involved” and “to prevent the (children’s) further removal or concealment before the final disposition of the petition”.

Last week, Joe Jonas shut down claims that he ‘abducted’ his two daughters.

A representative for the Waffle House singer said he wants their children to be raised in both England and America.

They stated: “Joe is seeking shared parenting with the kids so that they are raised by both their mother and father and is, of course, also okay with the kids being raised both in the US and the UK.”

Joe and Sophie announced they were divorcing after four years of marriage in early September. The couple were together for six years before mutually deciding to end their relationship.
