Leah Messer has regained shared custody of her twins, Aliannah and Aleeah, with her ex-husband Corey Simms.
Leah lost primary custody of her twins in October.
Her first husband, Corey, was granted primary custody. Leah saw her kids on weekends.
Why did Leah lose custody last year? Corey (and the courts) insisted Leah was an unfit mother.
Corey claimed Leah took the kids to school late (and there were other issues like their diets and bedtimes). Some of the allegations were proven false.
Leah was adamant that she got her twins to school on time. Moreover she claimed she had proof. It turns out she was telling the truth. For example timestamped photos that proved she dropped the girls off on time (on the days she was accused of dropping them off late).
Leah used the evidence to get 50/50 custody of the twins.
“[Leah] proved in court that the kids were not tardy to school, so the judge said there was no reason the kids shouldn’t be with their mom predominantly,” explained a source.
“Leah is doing great,” the source says. “She had confidence that she would be proven right and get her custody rights back.”
Leah and Corey “came to an agreement that works best for the girls.” They also agreed to “split the bills 50-50”.
What is the new custody agreement?
The former couple agreed Wednesday that Leah will have the twins “Thursdays through Sundays, and will deliver them to their dad… on Mondays. He’ll have them for the remainder of the week.” Corey will also have the twins one weekend per month.
“[Leah] was never asking for full custody,” the source explains. “She wants the girls to be able to see their dad.”
