Jodie Sweetin’s attorney Wilma Presley says that Jodie and her estranged husband Cody Herpin “are working hard to avoid a protracted custody battle” for their 9-month-old daughter Zoie. The couple attended their first joint mediation session this week at an Orange County, Calif., court.
“They’re trying to work things out regarding the sharing of their child,” attorney Wilma Presley says. “As far as reconciliation as a couple goes, in family law, you just never know.”
Despite recent court drama, “Jodie is doing very well,” Presley adds. “She had a very nice Christmas. She had her daughter on Christmas Eve and morning, and so far, the sharing has been smooth. There haven’t been complaints from either side.”
Jodie is also “working hard on sobriety attending a 12-step program,” as well as dedicating time to her book, an autobiography about her childhood stardom and personal struggles.
A judge ruled at a Dec. 17 hearing that custody of Zoie was to be shared 50-50, and that custodial time would take place at her parents’ home where she currently lives, or if not at home, in the presence of one of her parents. Presley stressed this was not monitored custody, because Sweetin can drive their daughter alone to and from Herpin’s residence.
