Austin Chick and his former wife Morena Baccarin recently made headlines following an ugly battle over custody of their son. They had clashes over passports, plane trips and play dates and Chick soon launched an ’emergency’ custody battle with ex-wife actress Morena Baccarin over their three-year-old son. According to the law, in a custody case of a minor, a parent can ask the court to issue an emergency ex parte order when they believe there is immediate risk of physical danger or psychological harm to the child. In his appeal, Chick requested changes to a 2015 court-ordered custody agreement over their son Julius. He said that he and Baccarin had established a different routine over the past year-and-a-half, until recently when Baccarin started making things more difficult. Chick stated that Baccarin had been making transitions hard for Julius, and also demanded that he get his son’s passport back. Baccarin’s attorney obviously defended his client calling the move ‘gamesmanship’ to ‘vex and harass’ her client and also requested $3,300 to cover all legal fees. Baccarin currently lives in New York with her fiance and ‘Gotham’ costar Ben McKenzie and their 11-month-old daughter Frances, was give primary physical custody in 2015, though she and Chick share legal custody.
