Theballerlife.com just learned that Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn Wade’s lawyer has filed a motion asking to leave her on-going child custody case.
The Sun-Times reports:
He’s the 12th lawyer to represent Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife, and on Monday Michael Haber asked a judge to clear the way for No. 13.
Citing irreconcilable differences, Haber filed a motion asking to leave Siohvaughn Funches-Wade’s case, delaying a scheduled child custody hearing.
“Our relationship has broken down to the point that I can no longer represent Ms. Wade. Our interests are adverse to one another,” said Haber, who is representing Funches-Wade both in criminal court and the child custody case.
Funches-Wade faces misdemeanor charges — including child abduction — and loss of her visitation rights, after she failed to turn over her sons on time so they could spend Father’s Day with Wade.
She claims to have suffered a severe asthma attack that afternoon, which caused her to be late in returning the children.
Funches-Wade asked that the court deny Haber’s request, citing dwindling resources and Haber’s familiarity with the case.
“I beg of you, judge, please. The escrow account is fleeting. It can’t be done,” she said.
Funches-Wade has been represented by 12 lawyers from six different firms. But Haber is her longest-serving attorney to date, she said.
All court proceedings, both in the criminal case and custody ruling, will be put on hold until the judge rules whether Haber can leave the case.
Like we said before, we sure hope these two can work it out for the kid’s sake. Children need to have a relationship with their mother and father.
