Counting On spoilers reveal that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar lawyered up after a major loss. They lost custody of a 15-year-old boy who was under their care. Keep on reading to learn more about this latest development.

Counting On Spoilers: Jim Bob And Michelle Duggar Lawyer Up

The Counting On spoilers reveal that Jim Bob and Michelle are lawyering up once again. The recent court documents show their court battle over their great nephew Tyler Hutchins.

The TLC couple had the boy under his care as his mother Rachel Hutchins was unable to do so. Rachel is the daughter of Michelle’s sister Carolyn.

The U.S. Sun obtained the court documents that show the latest development in this case. Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar agreed to give up Tyler in September. However, there is a new development in this case. Both Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar lawyered up.

However, they’re not the only ones pursuing a lawyer. Carolyn and John are working with a high-power attorney. The couple is working to get full-time custody of Tyler. It’s unclear what led to this latest development.

“Comes now, Travis W. Story, Esq. Attorney at Law, and enters his appearance on behalf of John and Carol Hutchins in the above-captioned case,” the court document reads. “Robert A. Ballinger and Katie L. Freeman of Story Law Firm, PLLC, who are part of the same law firm as Travis, have been representing Jim Bob and Michelle.”

The Counting On spoilers reveal both couples are working with high-power lawyers. Robert has worked with Carolyn and John in the past on this same case. Meanwhile, Travis is the same lawyer who helped Jim Bob and Michelle with Josh Duggar’s child pornography case. He was found guilty and is serving 151 months in FCI Seagoville.

Counting On Spoilers: Jim Bob And Michelle Duggar Lose Custody

According to the Counting On spoilers, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar gave up custody of Tyler in June 2023. In the court documents, Carolyn and John argued they both had “physical control and custody” of Tyler from August 2015 to June 2016. Jim Bob and Michelle stepped in to become his temporary guardians.

“Petitioners have physical control and custody of the minor child and have acted as caregivers for the minor child since June 5 of this year,” the court papers read. “The Petitioners, husband and wife, are legally qualified to serve as guardians of said person.”

The Counting On spoilers reveal that Tyler’s biological status is “undetermined.” He’s not listed on Tyler’s birth certificate. It’s unclear why Rachel was unable to care for Tyler during this time. Carolyn responded “no comment” when asked about the Duggars giving up guardianship.
