Gary Shirley’s attorney is afraid that Amber won’t get her act together and admits that she’s set to lose custody of her 2-year-old daughter permanently. What do you think of this custody issue?

Amber Portwood, 21, who is currently in a rehab facility in Malibu, CA, might have lost the battle when it comes to custody of 2-year-old Leah. Gary Shirley‘s lawyer, Jeff Lockwood, tells Star magazine that the troubled Teen Mom star will most likely NOT regain custody of Leah, adding that Gary’s temporary custody arrangement will be made permanent. Do you think this is a good idea?

“I think custody will go to Gary,” his attorney explains to Star. In order for Amber to regain custody, she would need to be “able to maintain a clean track record,” Lockwood adds. And it sounds like neither Lockwood or Gary think she will be able to do that.

Amber is already in deep, having been hospitalized in June after a scary suicide attempt and being investigated by Child Protective Services and jailed for physical abuse after she attacked Gary on national TV.

But although Amber hasn’t made the best decisions, Lockwood ensures that she will see Leah as much as possible, considering Gary is on Amber’s side.

“We will aim for her to have a whole lot of visitation,” Lockwood says. He also hinted that the pair might move in together, so that Amber can be with Leah, despite her inability to get custody.

So Teen Mom fans, what do you think? Should Amber lose complete custody?
