Jesse Williams Granted Joint Physical Custody of Children Almost 1 Year After Divorce Filing
After five years of marriage, Jesse Williams filed for divorce from Aryn Drake-Lee in April 2017
According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Williams and Drake-Lee were granted joint physical custody of daughter Sadie, 4, and son Maceo, 2½. Last summer, the pair was granted joint legal custody of their two children.
The documents outline a specific custodial schedule for the months when Williams, 36, is filming Grey’s Anatomy, as well as a separate schedule for when the show is not in production.
Williams and Drake-Lee will alternate custody of the kids for major holidays, such as Thanksgiving, Easter Sunday and the Fourth of July.
The documents also states that Williams and Drake-Lee are to “communicate exclusively through OurFamilyWizard,” which is a website designed to facilitate communications between divorced or separated parents in order to remove conflict and improve the lives of the children involved. (Communicating via text message or phone is permitted “in the event of an emergency,” according to the order.)
