Dwyane Wade Wins...Custody of Kids

Over the weekend, Dwyane Wade was awarded custody over his two sons.

In a very public divorce, the last jab he had at his ex-wife was to get the children, after she made many public jabs at him as a father.

Lawyers confirmed the ruling Sunday.

Dwyane's ex-wife, Siohvaughn Wade’s lawyer said that they were notified of the judge’s decision late Friday.
"Unfortunately I think the court got it wrong and it’s not in the best interest of these children and fails to recognize that Siohvaughn Wade has been a wonderful mother and a provider for these children, educationally, emotionally and physically,"  said her lawyer, Michael A. Haber.
The two sons will live with Wade in Florida, who has been outspoken about the importance of this issue.
In court, Dwyane Wade’s lawyer, James Pritikin, accused Siohvaughn Wade of a pattern of erratic behavior.
Wade’s children arrived in Miami on Friday, and will remain with their father going forward. Wade’s Miami Heat teammates gave him an ovation when he revealed the news to them in the locker room Saturday, and the boys are expected to start at a new school in South Florida on Monday.

“My life changed in a huge way,” Wade said. “Mentally, I’ve been preparing for it for over a year now. To me, it’s bigger than that. For me, it shows a lot of people that you need to fight to be in your kids’ lives sometimes. You fight until you can’t fight any more. That’s all I was trying to be, a father in his kids’ lives.”

The boys’ mother, Siohvaughn Wade, will have what the court described as “regular parenting time” on alternating weekends in Miami, as well as several other times during the year, including Mother’s Day.
