She holds nothing back!
Jenelle Evans signed over custody of her son Jace to her mother Barbara in 2010, seven years ago. Ever since then, it seems Jenelle has had to struggle to see her own son, since she didn’t have any legal visitation allowances mandated by the court to reserve her legal right to see him.
This tension has been putting a strain on the mother and daughter relationship ever since, and Jenelle hoped to set things straight by regaining custody of her son in court.
Barbara has shared her thoughts on the case, but between that and tensions due to Babs’s drinking and driving, there might be even more strain on the two’s relationship.
A New Jenelle
Seven years ago, when Jenelle first signed over custody of her son Jace to her mother, she was in a very different place. There were rumors and videos of her drinking and using drugs surrounding her pregnancy, and she faced losing Jace altogether if she didn’t renounce custody to her mother. A lot has changed since then, and Jenelle’s increased stability led her to wanting full custody of her son again.
Jenelle went into the court case hoping to regain full custody of Jace. Although that didn’t end up happening, she did receive much more legal visitation time. She will now be able to see Jace on the weekends, during holidays, and in the summer; she doesn’t have to wait until Barbara allows her to see him.
Barbara Speaks Out
Barbara seems to be pretty optimistic about the outcome of the court case. She said she was relieved that the court case did not wind up being a battle in the courtroom and that both parties ended up being more calm than expected. Even Jenelle’s lawyer reported that the two were content with the ruling.
That said, Jenelle and Babs’s relationship doesn’t seem to be on the sturdiest ground.
