          Will Alcoholic Parents Agree To Extend Guardianship Agreement And Allow Grandparents To Continue Raising Their Daughter?


          September 12, 2018

          Renee and Lee say that their son, Chris, and his wife, Jessica, are severe alcoholics who spend most of their day drunk or passed out. They say after witnessing their behavior and living conditions, they realized their granddaughter was in danger and demanded that the couple sign over guardianship of her to them.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Outrageous behavior?

          Chris and Jessica say Renee and Lee “stole” their daughter from them. They insist that they are “great” parents and deserve to have custody of their daughter. However, after watching footage of a day in their life captured by Dr. Phil cameras, the couple says they realize their behavior has become “really bad.” But are they ready to extend the guardianship agreement with Jim and Lee and allow the grandparents to raise their daughter for another year?
