Couple At War Over Parenting Styles, On Brink Of Divorce (Full Episode) | Paternity Court


You may be seated. Hello, Your Honor.
This is the case of
Johnson v. Johnson.
Thank you. You’re welcome. Good day, everyone. Mrs. Johnson, you’re here
today on the verge of divorce because you claim
your husband of seven years is forcing you to
choose him over your
12-year-old son, Elijah. You state that
you have separated
multiple times over the past five years
of your marriage. You have petitioned the court
to order Mr. Johnson into
family counseling because you say,
if he will not agree,
you plan to divorce him. Yes, Your Honor. Now, Mr. Johnson, you admit
that your marriage is
at its breaking point, but you argue that
it’s because your wife
undermines your authority and allows her 12-year-old
son to disrespect you. JASON:Yes, Your Honor.JUDGE LAKE:You claim
you were on the streets
since you were
14 years old and you fear
your stepson is
on the same track. Absolutely. You are countersuing
Mrs. Johnson asking
the court to order her to take
anger management classes. Yes, Your Honor. Now, Mrs. Johnson,
let me start with you. How does Mr. Johnson
treat your kids? He shows plain favoritism. He… I’m angry. I just want my kids
to feel equal. I want my oldest son
to feel loved. When you say
he shows favoritism,
explain to the court. How? Okay, for an example,
I put my kids in baseball. He would participate
in our son Ethan’s, and he would never
participate in Elijah’s. That’s not true.
That’s not true at all. That photo right there was
Elijah’s birthday and I took ’em to the go-karts
and he was supposed
to meet us after workand didn’t even show up.My son was so upset,
he sat there and cried because nobody came
to his birthday party. He wasn’t upset that
I didn’t come. He was upset
that his cousins
didn’t come from Florida. It had nothing to do with me. He has cousins in Florida
that he doesn’t see a lot,
that’s where it was at. Now, give me more
specific stories of how you feel he treats
the children differently. We went on a trip
to Gatlinburg. It was just the four of us
and we had a great trip. And then, um, it all
just kind of dwindled down. My son, um, we took
like a safari ride and he said, “Me and Ethan
will ride on this one “and you and Elijah
can ride on that.” And it just hurts my son’s
feelings because he
never shows that extra step to where… She doesn’t enforce me
as a father figure. I’m the father that’s there. I shouldn’t have to because
he’s been in his life
since he was two years old and he should take that
extra step on his own. If I’ve been there this long
why not respect me for it? You see noticeable differences
on a day-to-day basis as to how he treats both boys? Yes, I do. He doesn’t
take an extra step in, like as far as going
to the PTA meetings
or uh… Did I? In the beginning? COURTNEY: Yeah,
in the beginning,
but things have changed. A lot has changed. You can’t expect
different results when you’re not willing
to make a change. He undermines me at home.
What is he gonna do there? He’s 12, you’re 33. Exactly, discipline your son. Now, Mrs. Johnson,
in your statement
to the court, you said your son
asked you, “Mom, why can’t I
have a dad, too?” Yes. JASON: He does have a dad. I’m there for him.
I potty-trained him. I’ve taught him how
to ride bikes. I’ve played
video games with him. JASON:I’ve tried
so many times.
COURTNEY: This was
years ago, though. Mr. Johnson, but do
you show favoritism? Do you, to your
biological child? No, I don’t. Yes, he does. He does. He will go
in our son’s room
that we have together, and he will go in there… He’s my son. I’m not
going to be disrespected
and then deal with it. At one point in time
I would go to work and I would
work nights and they would have like
movie night and all this
other fun stuff and then… And you would lay out rules
for him to do and he
never does ’em. COURTNEY:He put it to a stop.My son refuses
to come home when me
and Mr. Johnson are together. I have a letter
from my son right here.
I’ll read it. All right. “My name is Elijah.
I’m 12 years old. “I don’t want my mom
and Jason to be
together anymore. “I don’t like Jason at all.
I don’t like being around him. “I don’t ever want
to see him again. “He hurts my feelings
because he does stuff
with my brother “and don’t wanna do
stuff with me.” (AUDIENCE EXCLAIMING) Why? I don’t care. JUDGE LAKE: Jerome,
please hand me that letter. JASON: There are so many
different points of view. Mr. Johnson,
I have to ask you, do you have any idea why
Elijah would feel this way? Elijah’s disrespectful
to me, to her, to everyone. (ALL ARGUING) When you say
he’s disrespectful, first
give me some specifics. What do you mean? She told him…
We got a new place together. I’ve started remodeling
the entire place. She told him specifically
to clean up after himself,
he is 12 years old. I cleaned the entire house. Five minutes later
he destroyed it.
There was food everywhere. I asked him, “Pick up after yourself.
I shouldn’t have to do it.
You’re 12 years old.” He told me, “You do it,
you’ll have to deal with her
when she gets home.” He knows I can’t have
the house like that ’cause
then me and her are gonna fight
over a dirty house. And I’m not gonna
fight over a dirty house. You know what happened?
I cleaned it. So now, Mrs. Johnson,
let me ask you, are you undermining
his authority? JASON: Absolutely. Does Elijah feel like
he doesn’t have
to listen to him? He knows he don’t. I feel like I have to choose
between my son and my husband. I feel like that. I do, because
when I do go to work, I have to take my son
to my father’s house. My son is not my
father’s responsibility. JASON: Well, I’m sorry.
You don’t discipline him. When he does those things,
do you think he gets
grounded? No, she’ll go buy him
a video game,
a phone, an iPod. Listen, this is concerning
to me because when I hear
a 12-year-old child, you know, to say they don’t
want their parents
to be together anymoreand that he doesn’t like
his stepfather at all…
That’s ’cause
all we do is argue. Well, it’s oddly funny,
he day before I left,
he didn’t say that. You know, this court is about
empowering families, helping them understand
how to be better families, and respect one another. Exactly. He knows
I’m not his father. I hear you,
Mr. Johnson. What I’m trying to get at
is whether
you respect Elijah. It ain’t just me though.
He disrespects everybody. He disrespects his brother,
he disrespects me,
his mother. He talks back. She fights with him
constantly over
the simplest things. “Clean your room.
Listen, don’t talk back.” It’s always an argument. “Take the dog out.
Feed the dog.” Whatever it is,
he cannot do it. He cannot be disciplined.
She won’t discipline him. And instead of
disciplining him,
she babies him. JUDGE LAKE: Okay. Okay and when
me and him are left alone,
with me, him, and my other son and they’re fighting for
about two hours straight,
nonstop, she comes home,
I tell her what happened, I tell her that
they’re not listening and instead
of disciplining the kids,
she fights with me. He’s the one acting like
he’s 12 too. And I don’t always… I’m trying to teach
this boy to be a man. How specifically are you
trying to teach him
to be a man? If he’s 12 years old,
can he pick up after himself? Can he listen to his mom?
Can he respect his elders? So learning how to do chores,
clean up after himself… Respect. Respect. Yeah, but you gotta
give respect… I did give respect
for many, many years. I get told, “Oh, you don’t
go to his baseball games.” He hates me. So, now you two are
separated because of this? Right now. Yep. I mean, I love Jason
with all my heart. I do. JASON: I love her, too. And I would love for us
to work and to be
a happy family. We don’t see eye to eye. But at the point
it’s at right now, I just don’t know
if that’s ever going to happen because so much
has happened,
so many… How do you want me
to be a father
but not do fatherly things? JUDGE LAKE: Mrs. Johnson,
you’ve brought
a witness today. Could you please
stand up, sir?
Mmm-hmm. State your name
for the court. I’m Rick Amolsch,
Courtney’s father. Mr. Amolsch, thank you
so much for joining us today. Please, talk to the court
about what you’ve witnessed
and what your understanding is in terms of the favoritism
or Elijah’s disrespect, as Mr. Johnson has put it,
to him and all people. JASON: Everybody. RICK: I see
Elijah being left out on
a lot of things, so… JASON:Left out of what?Father-son…
Um, ice cream. Uh, you ask Ethan
to pick up your room, it’s like, (IN ANGRY VOICE)
“Would you pick up your room? “What’s wrong with you?
Why don’t you…” JASON: So why aren’t we here
for the way you talk to Ethan? You know, talk to him
like a human being, not like an animal
that did something wrong. Doesn’t it…
Wait, wait, wait, wait. You’re his grandfather? Yes. JASON: Doesn’t that go
for both kids though? Wouldn’t that go
for both children,
not just Elijah? Like when Ethan, my son,
he does the same thing,
he babies Elijah, “Oh, it’ll be okay.
Oh, it’ll be okay.” You yell at him. Your daughter will admit it. So, now, you’re saying
that Mr. Amolsch yells at… JASON: He’s way more
aggressive with Ethan
than he is with Elijah.With Elijah, it’s,
“Oh, it’s okay.”
Pat him on the head.
Do you think he’s
overcompensating
for Elijah because he feels like
you leave him out? Jason is so firm
with Ethan that… I am firm with him.
I don’t want bad kids. I come from the streets.
I don’t wanna raise kids
that are gonna wind up there. I don’t want them to be 15
and say, “I’m gonna pick them streets
instead of my mom and dad.” I did that. It didn’t work. So, your fear is,
“If I don’t keep a tight rein
on these boys…” JASON: They’re gonna walk. They’re not gonna go
to school, they’re not
gonna get an education, they’re not gonna respect
you, him, me, nobody. So it is your purpose
in life as the father
in the house to give them
that discipline. You’re saying you’re
molding them… Absolutely. Yeah, but how is he showing
them when he’s not working
a steady job, when he, I mean, you know,
the thing about it is that… I got no education
and I do work. Jason sits there and one of
our biggest arguments
is financial problems. And he’s like,
“I help you and its 50-50
with both of us.” But it’s not.
Jason pays half of the bills. And that’s about it. Every once in a while… Lot of men I hear
ain’t doing that. His mom helps more
with the kids than he does as far as
getting school clothes and stuff like that. JASON:
Is that a bad thing? So, you’re saying he needs
to focus less on molding
the children and more on providing? Both, no.
I think it needs to be both. He needs to do it
all the way around. So, Mr. Amolsch,
I wanna ask you, what do you think should
happen in this relationship? You’ve witnessed this,
you see the relationships
they have with the children
and the climate
in their marriage. What do you think
should happen here? I think that they should
finalize and get a divorce. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) I think that would
be the best… You really feel like there’s
no saving the marriage? I feel like that’s
contradicting, you know. No, I don’t feel like
there is. From what I’ve seen
over the years, no. Um, if you don’t
keep a job… If he does get a job,
he loses it. And Elijah… It’s gonna take
a lot for those two to get
to respect for one another. JUDGE LAKE:And you don’t feel
like he’s setting a good
example for your grandson?
He ain’t in the home.
He don’t know what I do. We lived with my dad
from February till July. We lived with my father. And so, he does have
a good intake of what we
went through. JASON:
She needs anger management.
She can’t handle them kids. I do need anger management. Thank you so much,
Mr. Amolsch,
for your testimony. It was enlightening.
You may have a seat. I’ll be the first one.
I do need anger management. I am angry and I’m upset and I just feel like
I’m just ready to explode because with my whole
family situation, though. He called me himself
and couldn’t handle him
one day. Now, how is it just me? So you’re saying,
Mr. Amolsch called you and said
he couldn’t handle Elijah. Absolutely.
He called me… We made an agreement
for Elijah to go there
’cause we don’t get along. He called me, and was like,
“It’s just too much
for me, too. “I can’t take it either.
Courtney has to work tomorrow. “You guys are gonna have
to figure something out.” COURTNEY: Yeah, but my dad
also had plans. You know what I’m saying?
My dad is retired. I… My niece was there.
She is 11 and my son is 12. He had plans, so they
still have to be under some
kind of supervision. You know, I’m a little
concerned because I feel like this child is being pushed here or there,
everywhere, ’cause
no one can handle him or he’s so “disrespectful,”
and I’m not saying that children, um,
can’t be disrespectful. I’m my son’s
number one advocate. But most kids around 12 years old
are a lot to handle. He’s twice the 12-year-old… That’s a really tough age.
I can remember being
12 years old. Does it happen to you
when it’s just you and him? JUDGE LAKE: Uh, are you
all interviewing each other or am I trying to figure out
what’s going on
in the marriage? Because my thing is all
of a sudden you get in here and you wanna talk
to one another. If you were talking more
to one another at home then you wouldn’t be
standing right here. JASON: That’s our problem. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) So, now, maybe this is another wonderful
thing aboutPaternity Courtis we allow people
to talk to one another even though they’re talking
over the judge. Continue. Exactly. What else do you all
want to say to one another? My mom treats all the kids
like they’re hers. Elijah’s not hers, but she
treats him exactly the same. Exactly the same.
There’s not a Christmas,
a birthday… COURTNEY: And me
and his mother have
a great relationship… JASON: A great relationship.
Why can’t… Outside of Jason. You know, if me and Jason
aren’t getting along
or whatever, me and her,
we still talk. Granted, sometimes
it’s a little hard
to talk to her when he’s there
and we are arguing because I feel like it puts
her really in the middle. Okay, let me move on
to the defense witness. Mrs. Phelps-Shultz, if you
please could stand up. Thank you. You’re the defendant’s
mother. Yes, I am. JUDGE LAKE: Thank you so much
for joining us today. Please enlighten us
on what you know
about this situation. Well, there is a lot
of disrespect going
around altogether. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) Okay, it’s just not
coming from one party, it’s coming from everybody. You got the whole
family involved here. Courtney’s
a good-hearted person. She tries to please everybody
and she goes out of her way
to please me. You know, when I’m just
the mother-in-law. But she does that.
She’s a pleaser. But you’ve got to set
limits for your children. You cannot be best friend
with a eight, seven,
you know, 10-year-old. You can’t be best friends
with these guys. You know, a lot of us
parents know that. You’ve gotta set a boundary. And bless her heart, the correcting part
just doesn’t come easy
for Courtney, and, you know,
and Jason feels
the authority figure. Elijah’s disrespected so… I agree with Rick on one
thing and one thing only. I don’t think it can be, uh, fixed between Elijah
and Jason unless a third party
comes in and does it. Thank you very much, ma’am. I understand your point.
Thank you for that. Thank you very much.
You may have a seat. I’ve set up…
Elijah has been
in counseling for years. I feel like when
he’s around, my two boys,
they fight even morebecause he has like
this kinda hatred…
JASON:So it’s my fault
they’re disrespectful.
Ethan’s disrespectful too.
He’s an 8-year-old.
He’s disrespectful. So, Mrs. Johnson,
that’s why you’re here. You want the court to order
your husband to take
parenting classes. Yes. What about anger management
for her? I mean, I wish that
he would do it on his own. I wish that it didn’t even
have to lead to this,
that he… You are just as guilty
as me in every situation. So while he’s trying to put
me out here like I don’t do
nothing for my son. He’s just as disrespectful
as Elijah, I’m saying it. JUDGE LAKE: You know,
I’m listening to this… It’s crazy. And I am certain
that parenting classes
could help you both. And what I’m feeling like
is that the issues between
the two of you
in your marriage, some of which are caused
by the parenting issues, others, financial issues
and such, professional issues, they’re all getting
clogged together and ultimately the children
are the ones suffering. I agree. And parenting classes will help you learn how
to navigate through this. I’ve brought up
parenting classes. There’s gotta be more
than that. You stated to the court,
Mrs. Johnson, that if Mr. Johnson
failed to agree to these
parenting courses that you were going to
divorce him. I was gonna petition
the divorce, yeah. JUDGE LAKE: Now, Mr. Johnson,
having heard what we’ve
heard thus far, will you go? Mr. Johnson, having heard
what we’ve heard thus far, it is this court’s opinion and advisement
that you both enter parenting
classes together. Will you go? I’ll do whatever it takes
for my family. JUDGE LAKE:
That’s great to hear. Let’s face it.
It’s not always an easy job. No, it’s not. But you all have to get
on the same page on the job. I feel like you two are
on two different planes
when it comes to parenting. We’re not even
in the same book. Everyone’s parenting styles
are different. As for the anger
management request, you countersued and petitioned
this court to order that Mrs. Johnson
go to anger management. Absolutely. Earlier in your testimony,
Mrs. Johnson, I remember
distinctly hearing you say, “I do need anger management,
’cause I’m mad all day.” COURTNEY: I am. You remember that? And I feel like I’m gonna
explode and I need to figure
some other coping skills or something because
I get to the point where
I just wanna hurt ’em all. JUDGE LAKE: Yes. (CHUCKLING) And more wives
need to be as brave, to stand there and say, “I might have on my
Superwoman cape most days, “but some days
it’s choking me.” (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) Right?
“And I need a little help. “I need to figure out how
to do these things, “or I feel like I’m gonna
explode on everybody.” COURTNEY: I do. So you are consenting
to take those
anger management courses? Yeah, yes. Wonderful. I realize that there was
a petition for divorce,
we’ve seen. Yes. I’m going to take a risk
and just ask. Now that we’ve consented
to the anger management
and the parenting courses, is it safe to say that
we’re going to work
on this marriage? Yes. Yes. Wonderful. So we won’t
be needing this, right? BOTH: Right. Fantastic! (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) Court is adjourned! From this point,
we’re gonna co-parent and talk amongst each other on
how to discipline rather than
lashing out at each other. From this point,
I agree with that. I think that I’d like
to try to work with her more.

  1. This matter should not have been in paternity court. Another thing is,..I agree with the father that they should get a divorce. That letter that she read to the judge from her son is shameful. I have seen too many of these young men with that same behavior. I can see that he is one foot in jail and the other on a banana peel. His feelings in that letter disturbs me. He is 12 years old!!🙄🙏🙏🙏🙏

  2. So, they are going to put their needs and their relationship ahead of the child. Dude, the kid is going to put himself out on the streets to get away from her Husband.

  3. Y people keep commenting what kinda court this is? Didn't u hear the judge say this court is to empower family? She's helping a family with children who is obviously crying out for help

  4. Elijah disrespect his step Dad cos he is not rich so dad should work hard and gain that respect, get a divorce girl,you are better off without him

  5. Oh gosh judge send them to DC lady I think this man change because your son is being rude to him and you backing him with his wrong doing you cannot force him to love your son yes he might rough ont him but you can't force him to do because he is not his child..that same little boy might turn on her too best thing get a divorce every child should hv there dad and stop argue over ride step child

  6. I believe that she raised a spoilt brat. I went through that situation and it was 1of the reasons that i left (after I was fed up being disrespected by children who I was taking care of and their father refused to discipline them).

  7. You guys, I just had I thought. What if since after the award show disrespect, there has been bad blood in paternity court and they have since stopped filming which is why we have been getting these season 1 episodes for a while now.

  8. He's 12 and kids are rude and lazy and don't want to do anything except playing. These things shouldn't make an adult treat his stepson differently.

  9. You can't get upset that this man is trying to instill discipline into those boys. If everyone says that they are disrespectful, how do you find it feasible to sweep it under the rug?

    The World is a nasty place to be in, and if you think that trying to make excuses for a kid's behavior is going to help them, you get it all wrong.

  10. WHY JUST WHY!!!!! Did we go from checking DNA to train wreck central..no mam' this lil episode does not meet the criteria for " whose is the daddy!!

  11. Maybe they should just change the name of the show to Family Court? Because that was not a paternity case. Glad it had a positive outcome though.

  12. OMG. This guy couldn’t shut up long enough to even listen to the judge! And he wants a 12 year old to be respectful when that’s how he acts to authority? Fool

  13. five, 10, 15 plus years ago, i probably would've taken the same position/attitude as this guy… you get older, you're supposed to get wiser. It's obvious to me that her eldest son's attitudes are based on resentment of his own father not being around and maybe a little jealousy, too. both need to realize that and reassure that young man that he is loved. most single mothers make the mistake of wanting the new guy to play the role of father to their kids, a lot of times before finding out if he's suitable for that role… it doesn't usually work that well, especially if the mother does not support her husband and/or undermines his authority because she feels guilty and/or she becomes too protective. I know he was harping on discipline, discipline, discipline, which children need, but what that young man needs more is to feel loved.. hopefully, they'll be able to work it out through counseling…. and yes, next time take this to couples court LOL

  14. This was wack!!!!👎🏿 Where’s the real drama!?! Where’s the paternity test??!? They came in angry and left hugging! This is not what we want!

  15. So are these episodes a part of the new season? If so 😒… They changed the time that it comes on in Chicago to 530am… In it's place is protection court and some other court

  16. At first I wanted no parts of this…I love PATERNITY Court but I stuck through and gained more respect for Judge Lake and realized parenting is a part of Paternity.

  17. I had the opposite situation. My ex partner said he didn’t expect me to b his daughter’s mum (she lived with us), however he’d often leave me to b the responsible adult and say that I’m in charge, but when he gets home she’d complain to him and he’d tell me off for my care of his daughter (I worked in childcare for 18 yrs). I try to b firm but fair, and he would tell me it’s not my job. He would contradict himself in saying that she can’t do things like prepare her own lunch, or keep her room tidy (she woz 13), and I couldn’t go out and leave her at home to get a coffee or a few messages yet she woz allowed out on school nights til 10/11 pm (she woz terrible at getting up in the mornings). She woz also “grounded” for one evening and told to choose whether to give up her phone or her laptop! She’d b allowed to keep her phone and laptop in her room while she woz meant to b sleeping. Also, if we were ever anywhere as a family, he’d totally b exclusively spending time with her

  18. I wish this judge would ask the other party not to interrupt when the other has been asked a question. She let him just constantly interrupt and override. She needs to control the court. It is more like a circus.

  19. judge need to stick with paternity court. why would she ask grandfather what he wants to see in their marriage. he needs to keep his opinion.and teach his grandson some manners

  20. I have a strange feeling that she don't let Mr. Johnson discipline her son. In fact, I believe she wrote that letter. Smh i would divorce her.

  21. Please tell me there is a shortage of unknown or validation needing babies' daddies to find, and that is why this is the case. 😃

  22. To all the people commenting about not wanting these cases and not understanding why they are showing these, the cases are from season 1, so obviously they started off the show, dealing with all cases related to children and parents, not just Paternity, they are probably filming the new season, so they are showing us old cases, i wish they would show us an update of these cases, so we know what situations these people are in, in 2019

  23. I don't believe the mother disciplines her oldest child. The mother and father are very annoying because they are talking the whole time!

  24. Look people this is the problem the plantiffs have taught the boy to rebel against him.Its like raising a baby horse if you don't break the bad habits bucking kicking biting rearing it will be a problem horse as long as it's alive same scenario.

  25. Why are they doing these episodes its not paternity? Of course the 12 year old is disrespectful, he's almost a teenager and he's in a home full of fighting and a cold mean stepdad who has clearly given up! you dont give up on kids when they hit puberty because it gets difficult.

  26. I'm with the husband 100% but this shouldn't be a part of PC this should be in Family Court. He has been raising her kid since he was 2 years old and my question is this; where's Elijah's paternal father? Since he feels he can disrespect his mother and stepfather pack him up and send him to his biological father. No 12 year old kid whether mine or a step child is going to disrespect me in my home period!!

  27. Given the husband has known the boy who's now 12 since he's 2 years old, something tells me there are deeper seated problems than what was presented court.

  28. Why is this lady bringing finances into a situation involving children they should know nothing about your financial issues if you arguing about financials in front of children play your fault you are making the mistake a disrespectful taute has nothing to do with finances and I can tell by your demeanor by your father and by the stories that are being told you guys are babying your child it's frustrating for your husband because he isn't listening because you're babying him if you keep doing it your husband is telling the truth because he won't feel like you have to listen to anybody and if he doesn't listen he can always go to mommy

  29. Elijah is a child. He is acting age appropriately. Most kids test their parents at this age. Further exacerbating the situation is the stepfather behaving like a child himself. As an adult, he is the one who needs to continue setting the tone for the relationship. The boy's feelings should not be disregarded. Note Jason said he did not care about the child's letter and he referred to Elijah as her son. What kid would not feel rejected in this situation? The mother is also a problem because she is spoiling Elijah in an effort to compensate for Jason's rejection. The kids are not the problem. That responsibility lies squarely on the adults.

  30. And another thing, parenting classes and anger management will not solve their marital problems. They need individual and couple's counseling. Then then need to include the kids.

  31. It's the kid if you listen to them every argument they have it's about the kid their relationship seems like most of their relationship problems it's because of her son he needs this man in his life

  32. Being with a partner that isn’t trustworthy is truly a heavy burden to bear things I had it good with my then boyfriend for more than 2 years only for me to start noticing some weird changes in his behavior towards me always on his phone smiling when I’m around him giving me mixed feelings I thought it was all in my head till he started going for different business trips it didn’t make any sense so I confided in a friend and she told me of a hacker called Brandon I didn’t want to intrude on my boyfriends privacy but I couldn’t handle it anymore I contacted Brandon and narrated what I was going through and asked if he could just give me access to my boyfriends texts and emails and not only did he grant me access he also showed me his call history,location and also his social media accounts I was right about my ex and I got out of that relationship you may also be in need today of such clarity don’t hesitate to contact Brandon gale today with phone number for text ‪+1(424)281-4920‬ and WHATSAPP NUMBER ‪+1(681)218-8087‬ with email [email protected] and Instagram @brandongale1 you’ll feel relieved after.

  33. The husband is showing just how respectful HE is! He keeps interrupting and making sure he has the last words after every sentence.

    BTW, did anyone else notice how the husband said he treated the boys as both his yet he constantly called the one son “Elijah” and the other “my son Ethan”?!?! And you wonder why people think he’s treating them differently?!

  34. It’s one thing to have your child’s opinion taken into consideration, but to have them rule your relationship? Heck no! And this mom needs to take a CLOSE LOOK at how she’s behaving because I wouldn’t be surprised at all if she undermining his authority; “he’s not your kid” attitude. She needs to look close because as momma bears, our instinct is to protect our children if we feel they’re in need. Even though he’s not his genetic father, he’s his daddy & needs to always be respected. If they have a difference in opinion, it should ALWAYS be handled outside of the kids. And her son might be pulling the, I want my mom alone because he represents rules, game. He’s a pre-teen boy, starting puberty & I’ve been there…boys can get pretty mouthy & contrary.

    They need boundaries & both parents standing side-by-side. Whether you agree with what he/she is doing at the moment, you don’t address it in front of the kids (unless it involves their immediate safety). You talk about it apart from the kids because they’re smart; they pay attention to everything we don’t, spoken & unspoken, and they’ll play games, working parents against one another.

    Judge is doing things lately I just don’t agree with & here was another – asking her father what his opinion was on their marriage. It’s none of his business or concern! A marriage is between two people & two people have enough issues working through problems. They don’t need a third person in the marriage. The sad thing is, these two are in “I’m right” mode. They both want to prove their point so much, they don’t care enough, or shut their mouths long enough to listen. Well, you can either fix your family, or be right…which is more important to you?

  35. After reading the comments… I'm going to head on out. Seems like a child with behavioral issues and a messed up Mom that puts her son out there for her dirty work. Hope nothing but the best. She needs to stop messing her son head up.

  36. Bunch of morons. The judge even said your talking over her and they kept going, yet they say the kid is disrespectful

  37. What's up with this lameness? Not even going to attempt to watch this. We know he's not the daddy and sounds like the kid needs to be put in his place from just reading the comments…

  38. what this have to do with paternity court ? and yes, i am now catching up on PC.. have been busy for weeks

  39. If he does treat the kids differently then there is no way the kids will ever respect him. Even the younger one will follow the older ones lead

  40. Thia dude is ignorant…that little boy is acting out bc he feels neglected..he doesnt feel love…and instead of being a man hes mistreating his step-son to get revenge on the little boy talking back. He wouldnt want someone mistreating his own son but he thinks it's ok to be mean to a kid that isn't his. Grow up..act like a man not a little boy!!!!

  41. The word STEP should never be spoken in a blended home. My daddy(step) has been there for me since I was 8. He never introduced me as step daughter. He made me feel included with his own. I’m 44 and that man is my hero. My parents got it right from day 1.

  42. This was a waste of time. This is a couple court case. Of course he's going to treat the kids differently because one of them is his & the other kid is a stepson. I'm sure the stepson pulled that "you're not my real father so you can't tell me what to do"

    Real talk, the Stepson is looking for attention and he's old enough to tell the difference of attention his brother is getting compared to the attention he's getting.
