Armie Hammer Files for Joint Custody & Requests Estranged Wife Elizabeth Chambers Return to the U.S. https://t.co/mlImKleZOG— People (@people) October 16, 2020
Elizabeth Chambers previously filed for divorce in July, seeking primary physical custody and joint legal custody of their two children.
Hammer, 34, is requesting Chambers, 38, return to the U.S. to arrange a custody agreement for their kids: Harper Grace, 5, and Ford Douglas Armand, 3.
Chambers is currently staying in the Cayman Islands with their kids where she and Hammer initially quarantined at the start of the pandemic. Hammer returned to Los Angeles in July.
The Blast obtained legal documents from Armie’s lawyers that state:
"As the coronavirus pandemic worsened in the United States, Elizabeth and Armie elected to stay with their children temporarily in the Cayman Islands where the pandemic appeared to be under greater control. Armie returned to Los Angeles this past July, with a promise from Elizabeth that she and the children would follow shortly thereafter.
To date, however, Elizabeth and the children remain in the Cayman Islands and Armie has not seen the children in several months now."
People reached out to Elizabeth and a rep for her could not be reached for comment.
However, a source close to Elizabeth tells People that she wants the kids to stay in the Cayman Islands because she wants to the kids to have a normal life.
"These are crazy times with COVID-19, shutting schools down in L.A. and Elizabeth just wants the kids to have a normal experience,” the source tells People.
The source also adds: "The kids are able to attend school, play with their friends and lead a fairly normal life in the Cayman Islands.”
