He managed to reach a temporary agreement on custody issues with his estranged wife Sophie Turner earlier in the day.
But Joe Jonas showed he was still leaning on family members later on Monday as he stepped out in New York City with his younger brother Nick Jonas, 31.
The 34-year-old Jonas Brothers singer was spotted walking down the city sidewalk in a casual outfit, while Nick hung slightly behind him in a darker ensemble.

Taylor threw a girls’ night party for Sophie at her New York penthouse this weekend as she and Joe debated where their daughters will live in the near future.
Under Joe’s recently signed agreement with Sophie, the couple will keep their daughters — three-year-old Willa and a one-year-old whose name has not been publicly revealed but starts with a “D” — in New York City.
The agreement allows the children to reside in the Southern or Eastern Districts of New York, which includes the Hudson Valley and Long Island.
While the agreement is broadly in line with Joe’s goals to prevent the children from permanently disappearing to Britain, where Sophie wanted to take them before Willa goes to school, the agreement states that the agreement was handled “without prejudice to both parties’ claims and defenses,” meaning its existence should not imply that Joe will ultimately prevail by keeping his daughter in the US.
The draft copy of the order still needs to be signed by Judge Katherine Polk Failla, who heard the case.
