Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are co-parenting their two daughters while both working.

Jonas and Turner's girls have been with Jonas as Turner has been filming, a source close to the pair tells PEOPLE. The former couple's kids have "more support" living with the singer amid their divorce, adds the insider.

"She has been shooting which is why the kids have been with Joe. It's just been easier because she's been working for the kids to be with him because there's some more support at home and on the road with his family. It’s something they both agreed was best.”

On Tuesday, the Jonas Brothers singer filed for a dissolution of marriage from the actress, 27, after four years of marriage, documents obtained by PEOPLE confirm. The filing claims "the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken."
