Sophie Turner was spotted with one of her lawyers on Friday morning in New York City.

The 26-year-old star appeared to be in a more jovial mood as she flashed a rare smile – in the past few days Turner has appeared more grim faced. 

Sophie is on day three of mediation to work on her divorce from singer Joe Jonas.

The X-Men star, who shares two daughters with 34-year-old Jonas Brothers band member, wore her hair down and had on Ray-Ban sunglasses with gold hoop earrings and her gold wedding ring in place.

Her attire was on the casual side.

Turner was accompanied by lawyer Catherine Bedford as they arrived at a law office in Manhattan.

Mediation: Sophie Turner was spotted with one of her lawyers in New York on Friday as she and Joe Jonas embark on their third day of mediation to resolve their divorce

Sophie was dressed down. She wore a floral print jacket and faded jeans as she seemed to be channeling a 70s feel.

Carrying a large white tote over her shoulder and a handful of accessories, the mother of two appeared ready for business. 

She topped off the look in a set of red flats as she kept close to Bedford while entering the building. In her hand was a cell phone and bottle of water. 

Bedford – who works for law firm Harbottle & Lewis – ‘deals with all areas of family law including divorce and separation; the breakdown of civil partnerships; cohabitation disputes; jurisdictional disputes and enforcement; pre- and post-nuptial agreements; freezing injunctions; appeals; and applications to vary maintenance’ according to the firm’s website. 

This comes two days after the former power couple left the first day of their mediations to resolve their ongoing divorce battle separately – two hours apart. 

The Game of Thrones star has petitioned to take their two young daughters back to the UK, while the singer wants joint custody amid their public split. 

While Sophie strode out of the mediation through the main entrance on foot at 6pm, her estranged husband stayed two hours later and then tried to sneak out undetected via a service driveway. 

Joe Jonas sat in the back of a black SUV – which he had parked in a garage – and was quietly driven from the office space in Manhattan’s Financial District at 8pm. 

Sophie also looked tired after the first of their four-day discussions – although she smiled as she arrived back to Taylor Swift‘s luxury apartment, where she’s staying with her daughters. 

Over the weekend, Sophie spent Sunday evening in Swift’s entourage as they watched Travis Kelce‘s Chiefs play the New York Jets at the MetLife stadium. 

The actress, who has become close with the popstar ever since her divorce was made public last month, left the football game arm-in-arm with Swift.

Meanwhile, Joe is in the thick of his world tour for The Jonas Brothers.  

Earlier on Wednesday, the British actress and 34-year-old Jonas arrived separately at the offices of Wilmer Hale to thrash out a divorce agreement.

Sophie donned a casual outfit of blue jeans, a white t-shirt and a green hooded jacket. She was accompanied by a woman who appeared to be part of her legal team.

In the morning, Sophie was seen leaving Swift’s apartment with the same woman.

Joe ended up staying in the building for around 10 hours on Wednesday.  

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.

Ongoing battle: This comes two days after the former power couple left the first day of their mediations to resolve their ongoing divorce battle separately – two hours apart.

Turner’s lawyer said they would go ‘full hog’ to resolve the matter during the process.

A court was previously 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.

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 fired back, accusing Jonas 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 popstar Taylor Swift, who previously dated Jonas.

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.

Cullen said he wanted an ‘amicable resolution’ in the case in the quickest fashion.

He said that the trial, which would take place under Hague laws concerning child abduction, would last at most two-and-a-half days as it would cover a ‘very narrow’ range of issues such as where the children’s habitual residence was.

Cullen said that it was ‘essential’ that a trial took place this year because both sides were ‘very young litigants’ who had ‘extremely young children’.

Judge Katherine Polk Failla asked Cullen if he wanted a trial set given that mediation was taking place.

He said he wanted it to run ‘parallel’ to the mediation. 

Cullen said: ‘We are starting mediation tomorrow (Wednesday) and are going full hog to do everything we possibly can to resolve this matter’.

Cullen said that the interim order signed by the judge keeping the children in New York would be ‘addressed head-on’ during the mediation, raising the prospect Turner may return to England soon.

Cullen also told the court that Jonas was seeking 50/50 custody of the girls, a claim that he said would ‘evaporate’ many of Jonas’s defenses in the case.

Jonas’s lawyer Richard Min told the court that his client was on a world tour which was taking a break on December 9 and so could not be available for a trial before then.

Currently the daughters are with Turner, the court heard.

Previous legal filings have detailed how the couple’s three year marriage rapidly broke up in August after Jonas reportedly saw Turner insulting him on their Ring camera.

He filed for divorce two weeks later claiming their relationship was ‘irretrievably broken’ and sources close to the singer tried to portray Turner as partying too hard and leaving him looking after their daughters.

But Turner responded with the lawsuit in New York under international child abduction laws.

In court papers she claimed that the couple sold their home in Miami in March and that they bought a $9million home near Oxford, England, which they meant as their ‘forever home’.

Turner went further in legal filings in Miami where she included a letter Jonas wrote to the seller of the property that showed him gushing about the prospect of living there.

The sale of the house is set to be finalized on December 2 but has reportedly not yet gone through, with the divorce potentially throwing a wrench in the deal.
