Jenelle Evans Takes Son Jace to Special Place She’s ‘Been Wanting to for Years’ After Settling on Custody Schedule

Posted on

Jenelle Evans is thankful for the new memories that she’s making with her oldest child, Jace.

Last month, the Teen Mom 2 star and her mother, Barbara Evans, reached a happy resolution in their long-fought custody battle and settled on a custody schedule that allows them to share time with 7-year-old Jace, Jenelle’s attorney Heather D. Kaemmer told PEOPLE.

On Friday, the MTV personality shared a sweet photo, captured by her fiancé David Eason, to Instagram of the mother and son riding a horse along the beach.

Blessed this day finally got the happen,” Jenelle, 25, wrote.

“Brought Jace to the place I’ve been wanting to for years,” the mother of three continued, and added, “I’m so grateful and blessed my son can travel now and share the same experiences… starting now.

Although Jenelle and her mother were scheduled for two days of trial beginning May 24, they “were able to come to an agreement before the trial started,” said Kaemmer.

“Barbara and Jenelle settled on a custody schedule that allows them to share time with Jace,” Kaemmer told PEOPLE. “The new Order grants Jenelle specific periods of time with Jace so that Barbara no longer has the authority to determine if and when Jenelle can spend time with her son.”

The new order also states that Jenelle has specific “visitation” rights, and she is “now entitled to speak to school personnel and medical personnel and receive information and records regarding Jace directly from them,” according to Kaemmer.

After settling on the custody schedule with her mother, Jenelle reunited with her son over the Memorial Day weekend.

“It felt amazing to finally be reunited,” Jenelle told E! News about spending time with her son, who will reportedly be with his mother the entire summer break. “He was so happy he didn’t even know what to do first when he got home. I was nervous a little bit because I didn’t want Jace thinking it was me that didn’t want to visit with him, but when he arrived everything was back to the way it used to be.”

“My next visit with him is this upcoming weekend since his summer school break will begin,” Jenelle told E! ahead of the family’s trip. “We are planning on taking the kids on vacation so that should be lots of fun!”
