Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas have come to a temporary agreement to keep their kids in New York City as they go through a divorce.

According to a report by CNN International, court documents showed that for now, the former couple agreed that Willa, 3, and their one-year-old daughter, whose name is yet to be revealed, must stay within New York's Southern or Eastern districts, which include Hudson Valley and Long Island.  

"The parties 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 of the United States District Courts for the Southern & Eastern Districts of New York pending further order of this Court," the filing read.

Daily Mail reported that the court order was filed to protect the well-being of their kids and to "prevent the children's further removal or concealment before the final disposition of the petition."

If the order gets violated, the court has the right to "take or cause to be taken measures under Federal or State law, as appropriate, to protect the well-being of the child involved or to prevent the child's further removal or concealment before the final disposition of the petition," the document read.

Sophie, on Sept. 20, filed a lawsuit against Joe demanding the return of their two children to England. She alleged that her former partner is refusing to hand over their children's passports.

Joe, for his part, said the Florida Court prohibited them from relocating their kids amid their divorce battle.

Sophie and Joe confirmed their divorce on Sept. 9, calling it a "united decision."

The two got engaged in 2017 after being together for a year. They had two wedding ceremonies in 2019—one in Las Vegas in May and another one in France in June.
