Alex Jones of InfoWars asks to set aside child custody verdict

Some Colorado readers are familiar with the work of Alex Jones, the man behind the controversial website known as InfoWars. The site has made headlines over extreme claims and dubious conspiracy theories, some of which played a minor role in the recent presidential election. Jones and his former wife recently appeared in court on a child custody matter, and Alex Jones was unsuccessful in his efforts to maintain full custody of the couple's three children. Now, Jones has asked the court to set aside the recent jury verdict, prompting his ex-wife to speak out on the matter.

At issue in the case was the idea of parental alienation, which is defined as the act of one parent intentionally alienating a child or children against the other parent. It can take many different forms, and is a practice that can be difficult to prove in a court of law. In the case of Alex and Kelly Jones, the mother was able to present a list of actions to support her claim that her children had been turned against her by their father.

Alex Jones was initially granted custody of the couple's three children, who range in age from 9 to 14. Kelly Jones was only allowed limited interaction with her kids. She also testified that when she was with her children, they often relayed disturbing information to her, at times related to claims about her made by Alex Jones. She believes that parental alienation can reach the level of child abuse, as it damages the relationship between a parent and child.

The judge in the case sided with Kelly Jones, and gave her custody of her three children. Alex Jones will be able to spend time with his kids, but will no longer have the ability to make decisions on their behalf. In asking the judge to set aside the jury verdict, Alex Jones may be able to delay the reunification of his kids with their mother, but the matter will again go before the court in late May. For Colorado parents who face a child custody battle in which parental alienation plays a role, the outcome of this case may be of interest.
