Amber Portwood & Andrew Glennon Head Back to Court as Custody Battle Heats Up

by at .  Updated at .

Amber Portwood is headed to court yet again.

But this time is different from her many, many previous appearances in that the Teen Mom OG star actually wants to be there.

Amber, Andrew Glennon

According to a new report from The Ashley's Reality Roundup, Amber and her ex-fiance, Andrew Glennon, will once again square off in court next month.

The appearance amounts to a minor legal victory for Amber.

Andrew is being forced to appear to answer claims that he is in contempt of court for repeatedly violating the terms of his custody agreement with Amber.

As we know, Andrew has had full custody of son James since July when holy hell broke loose between the boy's parents.

The decision was handed down by a judge shortly after Amber was arrested on domestic violence charges.

Glennon told police that Portwood struck him while he was holding James and ran after him with a machete.

He was later able to furnish a mountain of evidence in court, including audio tapes of Amber attacking and threatening to kill him.

It was as ugly as it sounds. Maybe even more so.

Somewhat remarkably, Amber was able to avoid jail time, but the family court judge sided with Andrew and granted him full custody.

Portwood was, however, able to secure some clauses in the custody agreement that ensured she would be able to remain in James' life.

First and foremost, a judge ruled that Glennon would not be permitted to move back to his native California with James.

He must instead remain in Indiana so that the MTV personality could exercise her visitation rights with the child.

Glennon remained in Indiana as ordered.

He has continued to live near Portwood, but Amber is now alleging that he has violated the agreement in other ways.

Specifically, she alleges that Andrew did not allow her to see her son over Christmas, as they had previously planned.

Furthermore, she alleges that James suffered a dog bite while he was in California with his father over the holidays.

While these things do happen without the parent(s) deliberately being at fault, the circumstances concerned Amber.

Glennon didn't tell her about it until several days later, she says, which if true is a suspect move on several levels.

On top of all that, Amber alleges that Andrew posted photos of James on his Instagram page in clear violation of the terms the former couple reached in their custody agreement.

According to court documents, Andrew must now “show cause why he should not be found in contempt of this Court’s order for failing to comply with the Mediated Agreement entered on October 23, 2019."

Glennon has admitted that “some people took liberties” with his Instagram page, and he has removed the offending photo.

It remains to be seen how Andrew plans to respond to the other allegations when he appears in court on February 11.
