A Chicago judge today ruled that Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife can’t visit her sons in the Chicago area where she owns a home. Siovaughn Funches-Wade must travel to Florida to visit her sons under supervision.
The judge deferred her final decision on Funches-Wade’s custody rights until July 9.
The temporary ruling comes less than a week after Wade and the Miami Heat won the NBA title against the OKC Thunder in Miami.
Funches-Wade was arrested and charged with child abduction for allegedly failing to return their sons, ages 10 and five, to Wade in a timely manner over the Father’s Day weekend.
Wade was in Chicago today attending the custody hearing. He is seeking a termination of Funches-Wade’s visitation rights, or visitation only with supervision.
Funches-Wade invoked her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination during the custody hearing. Her attorney, Michael Haber, said Funches-Wade might have hurt her defense against the criminal charges if she testified today.
