Child Custody Agreement Gives Mel Joint Custody

9/27/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva signed a "Child Custody" agreement in May which spelled it out as clearly as can be -- Mel Gibson was not only entitled to unsupervised contact with Lucia, he was getting joint legal and physical custody of the child.

The document, obtained by TMZ, was signed by Oksana and Mel on May 16 ... but disavowed by Oksana shortly thereafter. She claimed she did not know the agreement gave Mel unsupervised contact with the baby. 

But the agreement laid out in almost painful detail the schedule for custody, down to the day and the hour.   Mel immediately got joint legal custody of the baby. He also got significant unsupervised visitation, which turned into 50/50 custody when Lucia turned 3.

The agreement also provided, when Mel didn't have Lucia, the nanny would coordinate a Skype call between himself and the child.

The agreement spelled out who gets the kids on holidays. But these pages, which were initialed by both Mel and Oksana, were X'd out. We're told a similar schedule was later substituted for the one you see.

It was the Father's Day visitation that sent the case into family court, when Oksana refused to let Mel have the baby.

Oksana's lawyer, Dan Horowitz, had no comment.

I don't understand why this woman decided to play a dangerous game in public.

She just can't Help it.

She learned early on to be charming in order to manipulate her surroundings. She lies very easily and though some lies are deliberate, most of her lies are unintentional and usually a part of boasting about her life. Because she seeks instant gratification,She speaks about the things she wishes to accomplish as though she already has accomplished them.

Remembering that her only intention is to gratify herself, She will commit a crime if to achieve gratification means breaking the law. These people aren’t natural born predators in the sense that they seek to destroy others. Their motives are selfish and if others get in the way of their desires, they will victimize others to get what they want. They simply don’t see their actions as criminal because they cannot see the harm they are causing through their actions. For a sociopath, the ends justifies the means.

antbabs, oksana has already proven that no matter what she signs and or agrees to, it means absolutely nothing to her!

horowitz came out saying how she is a poor, innocent just off the boat with those huge orphan eyes fantasizing about how wonderful the us justice system is, but in truth she has quite a bit of judicial experience under her belt.
except when it comes to her suddenly blinded by headlights " I'm just a girl" schtick when things don't go her way....

This years award for best investigative journalism should NOT
go to the lazy media, but be collectively given to the posters
on this site.

It marks a new direction. If the media is squeamish about a topic
or afraid of not being politically correct, a group of smart
individuals can pool their brains together and uncover the truth.

When a poster uncovers something they are immediately asked
for their source and challenged. Then discussed. And a pattern
starts to appear, as they get to the real story. Keep it up.

This is not a simple gossip site, but a landmark case to stop
the Gloria Alread style nonsense that has infiltrated the LA courts.

The lid has been blown wide open. Keep up the pressure and keep
digging for the truth so sleazy lawyers can't line their pockets
with injustice.

The do***ent says that Oksana is not allowed to record the conversations between Mel and Lucia at Skype. What a terrible woman. Mel can never feel safe with her again. Good Luck Mel!

plus for those who think the leak is coming from someone or some people within law enforcement, think about this first before you jump to conclusions...
with the sheer amount of items being leaked over such an extended period of time with such public scrutiny in play, do you really imagine someone in law enforcement doing all that without being noticed?

There used to be a name that we men used to toss around to describe females who dwelled below the despicable.

Hmmmm. Yeah. Keeping the kid on Father's Day would qualify for below despicable.

Now what was that word???


Well. Can't remember that bad word at the moment, but it had something to do with WOMEN who:

TMZ is either very pro Mel Gibson or they have fallen into the Mel PR campaign trap. TMZ has just been perpetuating Mel Gibson, proving that the man does indeed OWN Hollywood. I find it very sad.

the way that in the recordings the babysitter was i think the only name censored on the audio, as well ad omitted from the transcriptions of the recordings, gives one a reason to wonder if she played a bigger role in this than was thought.

far fetched sounding? most likely, but as we have seen, truth can often be stranger than fiction.

lawyers are taught how to litigate, negotiate, and practice law according to precedent. They are not taught how to "spin." (13) Untrained and unskilled in addressing the media, many lawyers require "outside help" (14) from public relations firms when representing clients who endure highly publicized trials. A public relations consultant or firm can help attorneys understand the effects of publicity on the judicial proceeding. (15) The attorney can thus respond with an appropriate legal strategy that attempts to minimize the negative effects of publicity. (16)

Lawyers cannot be sure that confidential information and communications exchanged with a public relations firm will be protected by the attorney-client privilege.

So if Konsie hired pr and they got copies of these things......
makes you go hm. And it makes her soley responsible for the leak. This leads me to believe that Horwitzle know's exactly who sold these do***ents. He won't go after them becasue they will lead right back to socket eyes.
