Dwyane Wade Wins Custody Battle with Siohvaughn Wade over Sons


This was a long battle—one that was filled with a lot of drama that only had a negative effect on Dwyane and Siohvaughn’s children.  In the end, the courts have decided that D Wade is the more fit parent and has been awarded full custody of their two sons.

Dwyane Wade has been awarded custody of his two sons, ending a long legal fight with his ex-wife.

Wade’s children arrived in Miami on Friday, and will remain with their father going forward. Wade’s Miami Heat teammates gave him an ovation when he revealed the news to them in the locker room Saturday, and the boys are expected to start at a new school in South Florida on Monday.

“My life changed in a huge way,” Wade told the AP. “Mentally, I’ve been preparing for it for over a year now. To me, it’s bigger than that. For me, it shows a lot of people that you need to fight to be in your kids’ lives sometimes. You fight until you can’t fight any more. That’s all I was trying to be, a father in his kids’ lives.”

The boys’ mother, Siohvaughn Wade, will have what the court described as “regular parenting time” on alternating weekends in Miami, as well as several other times during the year, including Mother’s Day.

With situations like this, there is never a truly a “happy ending”. Many people will say that children need to be with their mother, but if the courts have determined that Wade gives the children a more stable environment, that is where they should be.

Good luck to Wade and I hope he and Siohvaughn going forward get along with each for the betterment of their children.


  1. Let me tell you, the courts are never in favor of the father. So for the court to rule against her, the mother, wow speaks volume. Clearly this sista has issues.

    • I'll just add to that. For the court to award FULL custody to the parent that's bouncing all over the country means someone has messed up big time. If she was so concerned about who was around her kids then she should have made sure that she handled her business to make sure the kids were with her at least half of the time. Unfortunately she was more focused on being bitter/winning and she lost sight of the bigger picture, if she even focused on it in the first place.

      How sad for the kids. Hopefully their parents will come together and their lives will be more peaceful.
