'Teen Mom 2' Recap: Everyone Is Headed to Court for Their Kids

There was more custosy drama than ever on this week's episode of Teen Mom 2. All four moms featured on the show -- Leah Messer, Chelsea Houska, Kailyn Lowry, and Jenelle Evans -- are involved with the courts somehow, trying work out how to responsibly share the responsibility of raising kids.

Leah Messer and Cory Simms are still trying to work out a schedule that best suits the needs of their 5-year-old twins Ali and Aleeah Grace. Leah is obviously feeling very overwhelmed, and finally admits that it might be a good idea for Corey to have the girls for some overnights during the week.

Meanwhile, things continue to deteriorate with her husband Jeremy Calvert, and ultimately escalate in an explosive fight in the car in front of the kids. Ugh. It's easy to see why they ultimately divorced several months after this filmed.

Jenelle is back from her St. Thomas engagement trip, but things are tense with Nathan Griffith after she got into a fight with his brother and best friend on the last day of their vacation. She makes an appointment to see her lawyer about taking her mom Barbara to court to regain custody of Jace, because Babs has basically been using him as a weapon and keeping him from Jenelle. Seriously crappy stuff there.

Speaking of crappy? Chelsea Houska's relationship with Aubree's dad Adam Lind. Adam has been violating their custody agreement by not having his parents supervise him at all times with Aubree, so Chels has her lawyer draft an affidavit asking the court to mandate supervision at the family center only.

Adam thinks it's crap, of course, and then puts Aubs right in the middle of his issues with Chelsea, promising her that he will get more visitation and she'll be able to come play at his house soon. Later, she tells Chelsea what her daddy promised, and Chels looks shocked and heartbroken to hear her little girl say, "Daddy promised me he would take me to his house, and you can never ever break a promise."

Kailyn Lowry is also dealing with custody issues between Isaac and his dad Jo Rivera. Jo lives about three hours away and wants to spend more time with his son, so he wants to move to Dover to live in the same town. Kail is determined to get custody worked out so that Isaac still spends the vast majority of his time with her and Javi and Lincoln, and she tells Jo that even if he moved closer, it wouldn't guarantee any more access to Isaac.

Also, things seem to be coming to a head for Kail and her hubby Javi Marroquin. They're in couples therapy together, and from the looks of it, it seems like Javi needs to learn to control his jealousy, and Kail needs to learn to take a compliment. Thankfully, it seems like they've worked out some kinks since this was filmed, but man -- it was rough going there.
