Adele's estranged husband Simon Konecki has agreed to her request for joint custody of their six-year-old son Angelo, four days after she filed for divorce.

Showing signs that their split will be amicable, Simon, 46, also agreed in his filing that all financial matters surrounding the dissolution of their marriage should be handled in 'private mediation', according to The Blast.

Grammy winner Adele, 31, officially filed for divorce on Thursday, and the following day she continued her legal process when she asked for joint physical and legal custody of their son.

The duo originally announced their split in April. The Blast obtained documents pertaining to Adele's situation, and reports that she 'is willing to settle up on finances in mediation and have indicated they have worked out a custody arrangement.' 

The news appears to coincide with sources who spoke to People earlier this month of the couple's plans to 'stay friendly because of their child'.

Said one source: 'They're raising Angelo with love, warmth and real respect for each other. She just seems happy being a mom and working.'
