Jenelle Evans Regains Custody of Her Children

After more than a month in and out of court, Jenelle Evans has finally regained custody of her children. The family was reunited right before the July 4th holiday and spent the weekend celebrating by the pool, according to images she posted on Instagram on Sunday, July 7.

According to TMZ, the judge ruled that Evans and David Eason’s daughter, Ensley, 2, and Evans’ son, Kaiser, 4, would be returned to Evans and Eason’s home. However, Jace, 9, will remain in the custody of Evans’ mom, Barbara, though Evans can still see him during their regularly-scheduled supervised visits.

Evans shared an exclusive statement with after the court ruling, saying: “Today [was] the final day we were in court from 9am-6pm. The judge] didn’t find any evidence against us of neglect or abuse of any sort. With everything that was presented as evidence, the judge found that CPS only had ‘hearsay.’ What CPS presented didn’t stand up to the definition of abuse or neglect. When the judge said her decision it was so ‘matter-of-fact’ tone and blunt that I was in shock but [burst] out into tears immediately!”

Evans and Eason had initially lost custody of the three children after Eason shot and killed the family dog while the kids were in the house. The couple attended therapy and parenting classes after losing custody and had regular supervised visited with her children.
