ARREST FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Amber was arrested on July 5 after Andrew accused her of hitting him with a shoe while holding their 3-year-old son James, who was one at the time, during a fight .

He claimed she tried to break down a door with a machete, while he and James were locked inside for protection from Amber.

Following the arrest, Andrew requested full and emergency legal custody of James.

Andrew was granted primary custody of James, as Amber was allowed three unsupervised visits a week with their son.

GUARD WAR

Then in February 2021, Amber requested a change in custody to include overnight visits with James.

In Amber’s request for an overnight visit with James, she claimed there had been a “change in circumstances” that “warranted” an adjustment to their custody agreement.

She claimed that according to Indiana’s parenting time guidelines, parenting time is increased to include overnight stays when the child turns 3 years old.

Amber claimed it was in James’ “best interests” that the “current parenting time be amended to include overnight parenting time”.

She claimed the parties failed to reach an agreement in mediation and requested a hearing into the case.

The MTV star asked for primary physical custody of James and for Andrew to have parenting time.

DRUG TEST RESULTS

Andrew, 37, then demanded amber take a hair follicle test in October 2021 after claiming in court that her behavior was similar to when she allegedly abused methamphetamine.

Amber responded to his request by denying drug use and demanded that he also undergo drug testing.

An Indiana judge ordered both sides to undergo a “10-panel urine drug screen” at a lawyers’ conference on Jan. 31, 2022.

Amber tested negative for all substances when she was tested on February 1, 2022.

The substances included methamphetamines, which Andrew accused her of abusing, amphetamines, cocaine, marijuana, opiates/morphine, phencyclidine, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, methadone, oxycodone and propoxyphene.

Andrew also tested negative for all substances.

CUSTODY TRIAL

The parties then went to trial in the first week of March, where Andrew fought to move his son to his native California.

In courtroom audio obtained by The Sun, Amber’s ex Gary, with whom she shares 13-year-old daughter Leah, testified.

Teen Mom’s dad told the judge, “Amber is a different person now than she was with me, and she’s a different person than she was a year and a half ago.

“I notice more positive things. I’m actually very proud of her. It’s a big responsibility that she has. It’s a different connection with James than she had with Leah.

“Because when Leah was that age, she was in jail and other things were going on with her, and I think the person she is now is not the person she was then.

“I think it was a bit difficult for Leah. It was a difficult thing for Leah, considering how well they get along.”

Amber served 17 months in prison for drug trafficking until her release in December 2013, when Leah was just 4 years old.

‘NOTHING BUT LOVE’

In the moving testimony, Gary also claimed that Amber and James visit his house with his wife Kristina a few times a month to see Leah.

Gary said of Amber and James’ relationship, “They’ve been cuddling, they’ve made cookies, they’re playing with his toys. In the summer, they go outside to play.”

He added that James is a very well-behaved kid and Amber never got carried away with him.

Gary said: “I’ve never seen her do anything to James that would concern me. There’s nothing but love there.”

Amber and Andrew await a judge’s decision after the trial.
