Melissa Etheridge's Ex Wants Full Custody

By eksarran |

In the ongoing battle to end the partnership between singer Melissa Etheridge and former domenstic partner Tammy Lynn Michaels, it’s been determined Michaels is seeking full legal and physical custody of the couple’s three-year-old twins.

According to TMZ, Michaels filed papers in the L.A. County Superior Court to get the ball rolling and hopefully be the sole guardian of children Johnnie and Miller. She is also hoping to get spousal support from Etheridge.

The two became domestic partners in August 2005 (when it wasn’t legal for them to marry), and Etheridge filed for dissolution of their domestic partnership–both claiming irreconcilable differences–on July 2. When she submitted her papers, the singer did express intentions to get joint custody of their children.

It looks like this could be a very long ongoing battle between the two. Think the kids will suffer from their parents fighting over them? Should Etheridge get at least joint custody of her kids?

    Melissa should get joint custody of the children on one condition, that the two weeks she has them, that they are full time with her for those two weeks, that she takes full responsibility and only she looks after them, and that they are not passed to some stranger each time, to look
    after them, because mummy is working all the time, this would be unfair for the children and their birth mother, she would be denied her children for two weeks, and have to live with the fact that they were getting dumped with other people, and not with mummt melissa.
    after them for two whole weeks
