(Newser) – Less than a week after their Christmas fight allegedly got violent, Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller are one step closer to reuniting. Lawyers for both Sheen and Mueller asked the judge to dismiss the order barring contact, TMZ reports. Mueller’s lawyer went so far as to tell Us, “They’re very much in love, and they want to try to work it out”—adding the understatement of the week: “I think they had a really bad day.”

Two other entities that are coming together? Aspen’s Department of Social Services and LA’s Department of Children and Family Services, in order to determine which has jurisdiction, a source tells E! Mueller is still in Aspen with the couple’s twins, and Sheen is back in LA, feeling “awful,” a friend tells People. “He let himself down by drinking, and he wants to be with his kids.”
