More than a month after actress Jodie Turner-Smith filed for divorce from actor Joshua Jackson, the former couple has agreed to a temporary custody arrangement for their 3-year-old daughter, Juno Rose Diana Jackson, according to court documents obtained by E! News on Nov. 24.
In response to the divorce petition, Jackson concurred with Turner-Smith's request for joint physical and legal custody, and neither party will be paying child support. The divorce filing cited "irreconcilable differences," with Turner-Smith listing Sept. 13 as the separation date and Jackson indicating Sept. 30 in his response.
The couple has not publicly commented on the split, but Turner-Smith has shared glimpses of her post-breakup life on social media. On Sept. 13, her date of separation, she expressed gratitude for the love she received from friends and family on her 37th birthday in a post shared on Instagram.
Captioning a series of photos from her birthday celebration in New York City, she wrote: "As I embark on another new year, I can't help but meditate on love and its many manifestations...Love is not some lofty unattainable thing. Love is a gesture, a look, an intention. Love is community. Love is showing up."
While the pictures included moments with her friends and family, Jackson was notably absent from the carousel.
The couple is rumored to have met at Usher's 40th birthday party in 2018. In November 2018, they made their first public appearance as a couple at the U.S. premiere of "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri." The pair's relationship gradually became more public with appearances at award shows and other events.
They sparked rumors of an imminent wedding in August 2019 when they were seen picking up a marriage license in Beverly Hills. PEOPLE later confirmed that they married on Aug. 18, 2019. They welcomed their daughter in 2020.
Turner-Smith told PEOPLE in March 2023 that fulfillment for her looks like being her best self for her child.
"And I try to involve her in my life, not let work be this thing that exists outside of her, but that she also gets to be a part of,” she said. “And so that she sees me being a working mother and being fulfilled and wanting to mother at the same time."
