Question of the Day
“All he wanted was to spend time with his children,” Ms. Weeks said, “but Marilyn could not let that happen.”
At a hearing Wednesday in a Georgia courtroom, a judge found that Ms. Edge was alienating her children from her ex-husband and said he should be given full custody, Ms. Weeks said. It’s customary for the custody transfer to happen the same day as the judge’s order, Ms. Weeks said, but Ms. Edge said the children were staying with her parents in Arizona.
The judge gave her until noon Sunday to turn over the children. On Friday, Mr. Edge received a text from his ex-wife saying, “‘I will see you on Sunday and I have their school records,’” Ms. Weeks said.
Lawyer Mary Ann Korre said she had represented Ms. Edge only at the most recent child custody hearing and had known her client only a few weeks.
Ms. Korre wasn’t aware of any reason why Ms. Edge wouldn’t want her ex-husband to have contact with the children. Ms. Edge was calm at the last hearing, and there was nothing to indicate she might harm the kids, Ms. Korre said.
“I received the news yesterday, and I was just very shocked,” she said. “It’s just a very tragic situation.”
