Pauly D

Wants Custody War Decided

By Vegas Judge

EXCLUSIVE

Pauly D
got famous in New Jersey, but he wants to stay as far away from The Garden State as possible when it comes to deciding who gets custody of his kid.

According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Pauly and his baby mama, Amanda, are in a dogfight over which state should handle their custody case.

Pauly wants Nevada to handle it, but the former Hooters waitress wants a Jersey judge to pass judgment ... and we know why.

Nevada judges are more likely to give the father custodial rights than Jersey jurists.  In Nevada, there's a presumption that both parents should get joint custody.  There is no such presumption in Jersey.  Now as we reported, Pauly wants FULL custody, but having joint custody as a fall back is better than nothing.

There's also an issue of convenience. Pauly lives in Vegas and he doesn't want to have to make the trek to Jersey every time there's a court hearing.

Here's what's ironic: If Pauly gets his way and the case is handled in Nevada and the judge awards joint custody, he'll probably end up paying MORE child support than if the case was handled in Jersey -- that's just the way the law works.  But sources tell TMZ ... he knows he'll end up paying more child support but getting custody is way more important to him.

He doesn't give a crap about that kid. Its all about not having to pay child support to this women for the next 18 years. He screwed some one night stand pig and now he's stuck.

So basically there is a huge chance she will lose custody and she's scared. If she was confident in her mothering, she'd have it in Vegas just to get more bank.

first of all..he's an idiot and obviously doesnt know the law or hasnt consulted a lawyer but according to UCCJEA (interstate custody and visitation) law which most if not all states have adopted...jurisdication (state) of the custody 'war' is decided upon based off of where the CHILD has resided or has SIGNIFICANT ties in with a parent/guardian in the 6 months prior to the proceedings unless the custodial parent willingly gives up the jurisdicational proceedings to the other parent/state!! It is NOT based off of which is more convenient or favored to the parent but to the CHILD!! I have my comments about the rest of this story but I'll keep those to myself!

Just give the baby to Snookie and let the parents visit often. Surprisingly, Snookie seems to have rallied and become a good(ish) mother.

Hey douche bag. She lives in Jersey. The kid was born in Jersey. They both live in Jersey.

You have as much chance of winning this as figuring out how to do addition without using a pencil and paper. Or for that matter, using a sharpener for the pencil.

BTW Guido - it's pathetic that first you are using a shyte site like TMZ to cry to, not to mention using their check from this totally lame, idiotic, pathetic EXCLUSIVE!!!!!
