Sophie Turner seeks to move DIVORCE CASE to UK weeks after estranged husband Joe Jonas filed in Florida

Sophie Turner is now fighting to move her divorce case to her native UK, weeks after estranged husband Joe Jonas filed for separation in Florida, according to a court hearing on Wednesday.

The Game of Thrones star, 27, has initiated proceedings in a British court as she seeks to return her two children to England.

It’s the latest development in the couple’s bitter divorce saga and could likely further complicate the case that is now being handled by three different courts across two countries.

A hearing took place on Wednesday in a Miami courtroom, where Jonas, 34, first filed for divorce on September 1, with Turner finding out four days later.

Sources close to Jonas have claimed that in the lead up to the split, the British actress had been out partying while the singer had been looking after their daughters Delphine, one, and Willa, three, on his own for some time.

Turner fired back a bombshell legal filing at a court in New York – the third court where the couple are battling each other.

There she accused Jonas of refusing to hand over the girls’ passports so they could return to England with her and cited an international child abduction law.

Earlier last week, it was revealed that both sides had agreed to an interim consent order to keep the girls in New York until the matter is resolved.

During the 15-minute remote hearing in Miami, the first hearing in any jurisdiction, neither Turner nor Jonas was present.

Joe’s lawyer Tom Sasser said that, ahead of the next hearing, there would need to be depositions.

He also called Turner’s request to stop the Miami proceedings entirely ‘particularly concerning and problematic’.

He claimed that she had ‘elected to initiate a UK divorce proceeding’ and wanted to ‘stop these proceedings in their tracks’.

Turner’s attorney Beth Volgelsang told the judge ‘that’s not what we’re saying’ and argued that they only wanted a stay on Judge Young making an order in the divorce until the New York case is resolved.

Judge Young told the court that he would deal with everything else in the divorce apart from the children.

When Volgelsang requested that her client appear remotely for the next court date, Judge Young replied: ‘Your client will be here and will be in my courtroom.’
