Savannah was first to break the appeal news, revealing she "got a call this morning and the appeals court has granted our oral arguments. So, I literally was sobbing." She gleefully explained they are "one step closer to getting mom and dad home."

"Only about 6 percent of cases that are submitted for oral arguments get accepted. So this is huge news," the Unlocked podcast host shared.

"We get to go and argue why mom and dad should be home," Savannah added. "So, God is good. Thanksgiving win!"

As this outlet reported, Todd and Julie started their prison sentences in January at two separate facilities. She was sent to FMC Lexington in Kentucky as Todd was shipped to FPC Pensacola in Florida. Despite the distance and ongoing rumors of divorce, we're told Todd and Julie's marriage is solid.

"I can assure you that in no way are Todd and Julie moving toward divorce. In fact, I can confirm that Julie is more in love with Todd today than ever," Surgent told RadarOnline.com. "Tragedy and pain, suffering and hardship, have a way of binding people together in ways that triumph and victory are unable to achieve. There is something about experiencing painful and difficult times together that just has a way of forging a bond that is unbreakable."
