Bruce Beresford-Redman Custody -- His Story

5/27/2010 6:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We just got a copy of the documents filed in the Bruce Beresford-Redman custody case ... and as we first reported, Bruce's parents have filed to terminate their guardianship which would clear the way for him to regain custody of his children.

Bruce Beresford-Redman Custody
Bruce submitted a declaration which says, "While I was in Mexico following Monica's death, I am now back in the United States ... As Camila's and Alec's biological parent, it is my desire to immediately resume my  full custodial and parental responsibility ... and I am capable and fit to do so."

Bruce then says he supports his parents move to terminate the guardianship.

In the papers, Bruce cites a therapist who says it would not be in his children's best interests to attend their mother's memorial service this coming Sunday  -- which is being organized by Monica's sisters, who are at odds with Bruce.  He says, "It would be healthier for the children to participate in a small, quiet and private memorial for their mother."

And there's a big fight because Bruce wants to change the visitation rights of Monica's sisters -- from this Sunday to Saturday.  The reason -- Bruce fears the sisters will take the kids to Monica's memorial on Sunday.

As for the guardianship, Monica's sisters are saying they don't want the judge to ramrod a change just yet ... they want the judge to wait and see if Bruce is arrested for Monica's murder.

Hey *******, it was not beneficial or healthy for your kids to have their father kill their mother.

Self-centered egotist trying to get away with murder and give the appearance he is a pillar of society eww.. it really sickens me. Psshhh he doesn't want the children attending a memorial service and claims a therapist states it would be detrimental to the well-being of the children if they were to attend??? What therapist in their right mind would suggest that the victims family who is the children's family as well should not participate in a memorial service they are having?? If there is such a therapist I would only say...its a therapist not impartial to what is in the best interest of the children but, who only wants to try and assist Bruce in whatever manipulations he may have up his sleeve. Because of that I think the children should have a court appointed therapist to make a more professional opinion. May justice be served and whether that be 4yrs or 20 yrs doesnt matter to me..as the verdict alone will suffice..as it will prove this weasel couldn't get away with it, justice will be served, the victim can rest in peace and well the children (they have been dealt a heavy hand nonetheless)...but, let them heal in their growing as much as possible under the reality of the truth...not in the face of manipulations, or lies brought forth by their father who had an inability to own up to his misdeeds...which up to this point seems to have been his MO...getting away with something(cheating).

His behavior is not fit to be shown. He is walking around Beverly Hills, Hollywood, trying to validate a suspicious Will from his wife murdered in Cancun. He is not grieving her violent death or cooperating with investigations in Mexico. Monica's family is deeply hurt. It is a Hollywood drama. Too bad that is not fictional. Are the american authorities going to protect this citizen from being extradicted?
