Amber Portwood Granted Supervised Visits With Her Son Following Domestic Dispute Arrest

A bit of hopeful news for Amber Portwood!

As you may already know, theTeen Mom OG star has been going through it lately amid ongoing legal troubles with her ex Andrew Glennon following their July domestic dispute allegedly involving a machete and her subsequent arrest. The momma of two was charged with domestic battery, criminal recklessness committed with a deadly weapon, and domestic battery committed in the presence of a child less than 16 years old.

The laundry list of charges prompted Glennon to seek protection and file for a “no-contact” order, preventing Portwood from visiting him AND their one-year-old son James!

But according to Radar Online, that all changed on Thursday with a new court decision to lift the protective order and grant the reality TV star supervised visits with her child!

The co-parents (and a few MTV cameras!) both appeared before a judge in Marion County Court where the decision was made.

Per the outlet, the Clerk of Court for the Indiana courthouse confirmed the new terms for Amber, saying:

“She has supervised visits only for the child.”

As we mentioned, the initial order protected the 35-year-old and the couple’s infant son. It was reportedly clarified at the hearing that the legal order will remain in place solely for Glennon, who is seeking primary custody of James.

This might be a good idea too, especially when you consider the cheating rumors that have run rampant since all of the family drama started…

Some extended time to cool off and really think things through when it comes to the future of Andrew and Amber’s relationship might do everyone a bit of good in the long run.

Per Radar, the decision to allow the MTV personality limited visitation rights wasn’t an easy one.

The State reportedly objected to having the no-contact order lifted for the little one, but the judge ultimately sided with Portwood’s team. Both legal teams are waiting on discovery evidence to make any further decisions.

More details about terms of the visitation, including where the visits will take place, will be decided upon at a future Child in Need of Services hearing slated for August 22.

We’re hoping for the best for the entire family as they continue to work through their legal woes. Especially Amber, who’s facing the possibility of serving real time for her assault on Glennon.
