Ant Anstead and Christina Haack Had a 12-Hour Private Mediation Over Their Custody Case, Weren’t Able to Reach an Agreement About Hudson

Christina Haack and Ant Anstead Custody Battle: Everything We Know

Us Weekly can confirm that earlier this month, Anstead, 42, and Hall, 39, spent half a day discussing their custody issues but “were unable to reach” an agreement. The case had another hearing on Tuesday, September 27, where Hall’s attorneys filed for an extension. According to a source, the former couple “agreed” to postpone the court appearance, which is why the California native was not in attendance on Tuesday.

The car builder, for his part, filed a declaration expressing his concerns abouthis son’s image being used on social media and for paid content. In court documents obtained by Us, Anstead questioned Hudson’s exposure to reality television through his mother.

“The risks for a child working on a television production set (even if that ‘set’ is Christina’s home) are innumerable and well documented,” he detailed in a declaration about his ex-wife’s upcoming reality series. “Putting aside the obvious pressures of working within a TV production environment, children involved in television production often have lingering issues that affect their welfare, worldview, and self-image, leaving them diminished and dependent upon the perceived approval of others for their self-worth.”

In the paperwork, the U.K. native noted that he supported Hall sharing custody with him, adding, “It is my goal to ensure that Hudson is allowed a childhood that is joyful, healthy, and natural, with as few stresses as possible, and this should be prioritized above creating commercial opportunity and content.”
