After years of fighting for custody over her son Jace, Jenelle Evans and her mom Barbara have finally settled their suit.

Drumroll, please.

According to E!, Barbara was granted primary custody but Jenelle will have Jace on weekends, holidays, and summer vacations. Barbara previously had primary custody, but this is the first time that Jenelle has guaranteed visitation to her son.

Jenelle commented,

“I’m not restricted to when my mom says I can have my son anymore and at the moment that’s all I care about. [I] just want to spend time with my son. He will be home one day but today wasn’t the day, sadly.”

Although Jenelle is happy to finally have an agreement in place, she’s still not 100% satisfied with the agreement, and we don’t blame her! She said,

“I’m happy but devastated at the same time that I didn’t take it to trial. But in the world of Jenelle, you learn to pick and choose your battles.”

She added,

“I’m really happy we could to a decision for Jace but it doesn’t change my feelings towards my mom. She still isn’t giving up my son to me but I will fight again in the future when the time is right.”

Jenelle has two other children — 2-year-old Kaiser, born to ex-boyfriend Nathan, and newborn Ensley, born to fiancé David. Jenelle has primary custody of both other children.
