A makati City court on Friday granted James Yap the estranged husband of Tv Host Kris Aquino access to their three year old son Baby James.
Lawyer Lorna Kapunan said the court granted his client access on Wednesdays 2-8pm where his son could be taken to watch the Philippines Basketball Association (PBA) games and an overnight stay from Friday to Saturday.
The estranged couple attended a closed hearing for three hours at the sala of Judge Cristina J. Sulit, Makati City Regional Trial Court (RTC) after several months of not seeing each other except no doubt in the media.
The hearing took so long due to the judge talking to them together and separately several times. There is another hearing later this month for the discussion of Aquino’s petition to nullify her marriage to Yap.
After the hearing Kris issued a brief statement saying "We entered into a compromised agreement." She refused to elaborate.
"Our utmost priority is the welfare of our son. We will do everything to make sure that this would not be a traumatic experience for him (Baby James)," she stressed.
