Jenelle Evans is in court to fight for custody of her children after Child Protective Services removed them for her care. But is the fired Teen Mom 2 star taking the proceedings seriously?

Jenelle, 27, arrived to court alongside her husband David Eason for the court hearing around 9am.
While in court, Jenelle posted a parenting meme to her Facebook page around 11am. A photo of a mother with three children on top of her while on a raft read, “Mom Life.” Then there was another photo of a dad alone relaxing on the raft with the caption, “Dad Life.”
The meme comes at an interesting time, as she’s currently in court fighting for her children back.
The drama started when David shot and killed the family dog after she nipped at their daughter Ensley, 2. Jenelle was then fired from Teen Mom 2 because of the controversial shooting.
On Friday, May 10, child protective services ordered Nathan Griffith’s mom Doris to pick up Kaiser, 4, from day care.
Jenelle’s mom Barbara, who has full custody of Jace, 9, was ordered to keep him from Jenelle during her visits.
Ensley & Maryssa Gone!
Jenelle and David’s daughter, Ensley, and his daughter Maryssa, 11, from a previous marriage were removed from their custody.
Although a judge imposed a gag order on the case, Radar obtained exclusive details on the proceedings.
During their second day in court on May 17, David exploded in court. “David flipped out,” an insider said. “He was sitting in the courtroom and he pulled Jenelle over and was saying very mean things about everything that was going on… He was just so mad.”
Jenelle and David were able to see the children for an hour. David’s daughter Maryssa cried after meeting with her dad. “It was supervised with the Sheriff and social services was in the room and Maryssa ran out hysterical crying into her grandmother’s arms,” the source told Radar. “David was yelling: ‘What did you do to my child? Why won’t she talk to me?’”
The insider said Kaiser “is so happy with Nathan.” “It would be a crying shame if the kids go back to them,” the insider told Radar.
Begging For Their Kids
Jenelle and David asked the judge to dismiss the order of taking their children from them, but he refused.
