Madonna and her film director ex have been involved in a transatlantic custody row since last December when son Rocco refused to return home to New York after staying with his dad.
After his mother visited him in London, he has since returned to New York, and appears to be dividing his time between the U.S. city and London.
A spokesman for the Manhattan Supreme Court confirmed to Mail Online the hearing was delayed while a court officer said that the case had been 'put over for continued negotiation'.
While a new date for the hearing has not yet been set, editors at Mail Online claim both sides are close to reaching a resolution.
The New York hearing had already been delayed once before as Madonna, 57, and The Man from U.N.C.L.E director Ritchie work through their differences.
