Those Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner Rumors Could Be a Legal Tactic but a Celeb Divorce Lawyer Told Us Why It Won’t Work
Up until August, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner were one of Hollywood’s most loving and low-key couples, but now they have found themselves wrapped up in a PR nightmare amid the many rumors surrounding their divorce.
We spoke to Ashley M. Silberfeld, a Partner in the Matrimonial and Family Law practice at Blank Rome LLP, a group of 35+ nationally recognized lawyers who regularly advise A-List celebrities and other high-net-worth individuals on prenups, divorces, child custody and other parallel matters.
Silberfeld told us that any of Jonas and Turner’s movements in the aftermath of their divorce filing “could be considered a legal tactic.” So, could all of these rumors be an attempt to secure custody or prevent Turner from moving their kids out of the US?
“One could speculate this was as much about Joe wanting to bolster his image as a dad,” Silberfeld told SheKnows. “Another could speculate that he’s trying to disparage Sophie. Whenever parents are in a contentious relationship, both parties are under a microscope, and whatever they do/don’t do is fuel for criticism.”
However, Silberfeld notes that parents have every right to travel, work and be away from their children. “That doesn’t make them bad parents or mean they lose custody or can’t move with the children,” she says. Silberfeld practices in California and tells us that, there, “a court is required to look at all relevant factors to determine what is in the children’s best interest.”
