Olivia Wilde has won the first child custody case against her ex-fiancé, Jason Sudeikis. The court in New York dismissed Sudeikis’ petition for custody. The judge made an important consideration before the dismissal of the petition. For now, Wilde seems to be ahead on the case.
Olivia Wilde Wins First Child Custody Case Against Jason Sudeikis
Jason Sudeikis presented the custody case against Olivia Wilde in New York City family court in 2021. Sudeikis wants his children to be with him in Brooklyn, while Wilde wants them in Los Angeles and maybe London.
46-year-old Sudeikis has just successfully rounded up the filming of the third season of “Ted Lasso,” his Apple hit show is ready to head back to the UK and have his kids with him. But the judge discovered that the children’s home wasn’t in the UK where he wanted them.
On the 17th of May, Wilde, who wants her kids with her in LA, filed a petition to determine the parental relationship in the Superior Court of California in LA. The next day, her legal team expedited actions as regards her petition.
The judge obliged by citing that NY isn’t the kids’ home; therefore, the case has to be moved. According to the legal filing signed by the court attorney-referee:
“Judge Powell and this Referee agreed that New York was not the home state of the subject children; but rather California was the children’s home state.
Battle Between Wilde and Sudeikis
Sometime in April, Olivia Wilde was served legal papers in a manner she deemed inappropriate by Jason Sudeikis. The actress was furious when the documents were presented to her while she was on stage promoting her new movie, “Don’t Worry Darling.”
In response. Wilde filed a case last month stating that her ex was trying to embarrass and threaten her aggressively. She claimed that Sudeikis implemented an outrageous legal tactic and his actions intended to threaten and catch her off guard. However, a source revealed that Sudeikis didn’t know where and when the documents would be delivered to Wilde. If he knew he wouldn’t approve it, the source added.
