When tuning in to Teen Mom 2 last week, we learned that Kail and Javi were trying to move to Dover, Delaware in order to being their lives together. This week, Zap2It provided us with an exclusive clip of the upcoming episode, which reveals a little more about Kailyn and Jo’s court case. Apparently, Kailyn and Jo had a custody agreement set in place that required both of them to stay in state while raising their son, Isaac. Jo moved to New Jersey a little over a year ago, which technically violated his custody agreement, causing Kail to get upset. Kail then married Javi and he joined the Air Force. After his training, he was stationed fairly close to home in Dover, Delaware at Dover Air Force Base.
Kailyn wanted to live with her husband, so she had to petition the court to revise their custody agreement in order for her to leave the state with her son. Kail explains in the clip that she wouldn’t be any farther away from Jo than she was before the move, but she would simply be in a different direction. While all of this sounds fine to me, apparently it was a huge issue to Jo, because as we saw on Tuesday’s episode, he wanted his attorney to postpone the hearing for as long as possible.
In the video clip, linked above, Kail states that her attorney says this might be the most important court date of her life. She also talks about the challenges of living in Pennsylvania, while Jo lives in New Jersey, and Javi lives in Delaware. She states that both fathers would be missing out on time with their children, instead of keeping the custody agreement with Jo, and allowing Javi to spend time with his infant son every day. Kail also states that her temper might become an issue in things. We saw her temper flare up a few times last season, and this season should provide us with some explosive emotions as well.
We’ll be able to gain more insight into the court case and the legal situation as the season progresses, but we do know a few things about how it turns out due to twitter and other social media sites sharing information. Sometime on this season, we’ll be able to see Kail and Javi move into a new home in Delaware, along with Isaac, so we can assume the court ruled in her favor. What we don’t know, is how the move to Delaware will impact Kail and Jo’s custody agreement.
