Judge Awarded Mel Gibson

More Face Time with Baby

12/17/2010 4:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson will get to see his daughter more than he has in the past, thanks to Judge Scott Gordon.

Mel Gibson Custody
As TMZ first reported, Judge Gordon modified the existing custody agreement late Thursday.

Now sources tell us Gordon has given Mel more time with Lucia, but not a lot more.  We're told the increase is measured by hours -- not days -- per week.  Sources say the increase for Mel amounts to a little more than one day a week.

According to the agreement Mel and Oksana Grigorieva signed in May, both have joint physical and legal custody of Lucia.  Under that agreement, Mel had visitation rights a total of 6 days -- with three overnight visits -- every two weeks. The judge has now increased Mel's face time.

It's a far cry from what Oksana wanted ... namely, to strip Mel of overnight visits altogether and to only give him monitored visitation.

Sources tell us Judge Gordon told the parties there were no winners or losers, but that the change was made for the best interests of Lucia.

So Judge Gordon who is privy to all the actions of the parties and all of the evidence thinks the best interest of Lucia is spending more time with Mel. He got that right.

Exactly what I was going to say.

Can I get a Hell Yeah


BUT, knowing all the facts you would have thought the Judge would have given more than a couple of hours face time. I understand the "baby steps", but the Judge so far has ruled more in Oxy's favor - granted, Mel gets more visitation, but why hasn't Oxy been repremanded for all her wrongdoings?

Now, I say again, if the story is accurate . . .

Mel's time with Lucia has been increased: "Sources say the increase for Mel amounts to a little more than one day a week." The article also says: "Under that [the May] agreement, Mel had visitation rights a total of 6 days -- with three overnight visits -- every two weeks. The judge has now increased Mel's face time."

An increase of a day per week is an increase of two days in two weeks, which means Mel has Lucia an average of four days each week. We do not know if overnights changed any, but I think this may mean that physical custody for the child's waking hours is roughly 50/50?

Did I do the math correctly? (Not my strong suit!)

Good, get the baby away from the slandering gold digger. Just look at that lady, she's a void, there's nothing there. All she wants is to become another one of those celebrities that's famous for doing nothing. She needs to leave the kid with Mel and go back to Europe.

TEAM MEL!!

I'm happy that people clearly see Gibson is a great guy and father. He has his demons but so far they amount to nothing more than some drunkin slurs and bad language. Actions speak louder than words in this case.

LOL, funny you should mention the peanut butter cookies. Went to get one to have with my tea - all gone.

Would you settle for shortbread thumb cookies with homemade cherry/strawberry preserve?

I am so glad that Mel is getting more time with Lucia. Oxy will have to get a job. I wonder what. Being a Whore is all she is good at. I know shame on me.

Mel does not care about Lucia. He is doing this, because Jodie likes her, and wants to spend some time with her. Mel and Jodie are more than just friends. It has been rumored that they are in a devoted relationship for weeks now.

We don't know that she hasn't. It's ot exactly something Miss Oksana would want made public and Mr. Mel has always been silent.

Considering Miss Oksana was demanding Mr. Mel stripped of all overnights and have only limited, supervised visitation, I'd say increasing Mr. Mel's time is a pretty blatant slap in the face to Miss Oksana.

I'm quite pleased! The May mediated custody agreement wasn't invalidated which is a very positive ruling in favor of Team Mel. Judge Gordon was very careful not to give "Ole Greedy" any substantial grounds to file an appeal. He saw the Larry King interview for what it really was as nothing more than an attempt to force his hand so team Greedisana could file motions to have him removed as presiding judge. If all goes well, the LASD will finalize their investigation very soon and the District Attorney will charge "Ole Greedy", hopefully, with a variety of crimes. What goes around comes around! Frankly, I can't think of a more "deserving" person.
