Jenelle has to make court mandated child support payments to her mom! But she was in  court today (Jan. 24) because she missed her first payment! Exclusive!

A new development has taken place in the custody case regarding Teen Mom 2 Jenelle Evans‘ son Jace. All though Jenelle signed over “primary legal custody and primary physical custody” of the 17-month-old to her own mother, Barbara Evans, on June 10, 2010, HollyBaby.com has now learned that a voluntary support agreement was filed in July asking Jenelle to pay her mother monthly child support!

Jenelle Evans gives up custody of her son Jace! Details here.

Today (Jan. 24) Jenelle appeared in court to make her first payment in the amount of $130 to her mother for the care of Jace. While any mother knows that $130, doesn’t go very far when it comes to feeding and diapering a baby, that is the fee that Jenelle and Barbara agreed upon for Jace’s support. Unfortunately, Jenelle had to go to court today because she was unable to make that first payment, which had been due on January 1. Maybe if she stopped buying  cigarettes she’d be able to pay her child support!

Despite their heated, and at times physical confrontations which we’ve seen on television, Jenelle and her mother appeared to be on cordial terms while in court today, a witness tells HollyBaby.com. They were even standing next to each other, which could be a step in the right direction for this estranged family.

No attorney was present to represent the given parties.

Jenelle Evans arrested for marijuana and breaking and entering!

Jenelle is still set to appear in court on April 14 to face three charge of of possession of marijuana up to 1/2 oz., possession of drug paraphernalia and breaking and entering. She has yet to plead guilty to these charges.
