After a very long, very nasty custody case, the judge in Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel’s custody hearing has made a ruling. Well sort of. This all started when Kathryn went to court asking for full custody of Kensie and Saint after Thomas was arrested for sexually assaulting their nanny last year. Since then, Thomas has made dozens of horrific allegations against Kathryn and demanding he receive full custody and asking that her visitation be supervised.
The judge had now ruled that they will share joint custody just as they currently have. Thomas will be the primary legal custodian. Kathryn’s time with the children will not have to be supervised as Thomas had asked for. There was no order for child support made. There will be a future hearing to deal with the custody issues.
Kathryn Dennis Can Demand Alcohol Testing on Thomas
There are a few new requirements on the two. They were ordered to peacefully co-parent and consult each other on the children’s health, education, and general welfare. To insure that happens they will both have to attend a minimum of three co-parenting sessions with a counselor. Kathryn also agreed to cognitive behavior therapy, which I believe she was already doing.
Neither party will be permitted to drink or abuse prescription drugs when they have the children. In addition, neither will any individual with whom he/she is romantically involved when they are around the kids. Also, both parents are also not allowed to have their romantic partners spend the night when they have custody of the children. They are also not to allow the kids to refer to any romantic partner as mom or dad. They are both prohibited from speaking negatively about the other parent when the children are present or on social media. This has been in place since the beginning but that doesn’t seem to stop Thomas.
To insure the drinking does not happen, both Kathryn and Thomas are allowed to request the other be tested for drinking while they have custody of the kids. I wonder why it is just alcohol and not drugs. Thomas would totally fail a coke test on more days than not, allegedly.
So basically, the lawyers made a shit ton of money. Nothing of any real import changed. Kathryn Dennis’ bank account suffered the most.
