Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas will begin mediation to resolve divorce and custody battle over daughters Willa and Delphine ahead of January trial

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas will start four days of intense mediation on Wednesday to try to thrash out a divorce agreement, a New York court has heard.

A hearing held on Tuesday revealed the former couple will meet this week to resolve issues in their split, including custody of their daughters Delphine, one, and Willa, three.

Turner’s lawyer said they would go ‘full hog’ to resolve the matter during the process, which will likely take place at a legal office in Manhattan.

The court was told that Jonas wants 50/50 custody and a judge set a January 2 date for a trial for deciding custody of the girls, with lawyers claiming there could be multiple witnesses for both sides.

Neither Jonas nor Turner, one of the stars of Game of Thrones, were present but Turner joined the hearing via Zoom.

The hearing was the first at the court in New York but the split also involves divorce cases in Miami and the UK.

Jonas filed for divorce in Miami on September 1 with sources close to him claiming that Turner had been out partying too much, leaving him alone to look after their daughters.

Turner, 27, fired back accusing Jonas, 34, a member of the pop group The Jonas brothers, of refusing to hand over the girls’ passports so they could return to England with her.

She cited an international child abduction law as grounds for the children being with her.

Both sides have agreed that the girls will remain in New York until the matter is resolved.

Turner is staying at an apartment in the city owned by Taylor Swift, who previously dated Jonas.

Before the hearing Turner briefly appeared on a monitor in a room with a colorful painting in the background.

She appeared to be in a good mood and said that it was ‘all good’ once the sound problems were resolved.

Her lawyer Stephen Cullen told the court that there was ‘some difficulty’ between the two parties with regards to scheduling a trial to decide custody of the girls.
