Bam Margera wants a judge to dismiss his divorce pronto and let him hang out with his son … but his estranged wife Nikki is pushing back.
Bam’s legal team just filed new docs asking a judge to set an earlier court hearing on Bam and Nikki’s divorce, with the former “Jackass” star making it clear he doesn’t want to wait 2 more months for his day in court.
The hearing is currently set for July 11, but Bam says Nikki’s not allowing him to see their son, Phoenix … so he wants the judge to step in and get the ball rolling ASAP.
TMZ broke the story … Nikki filed for legal separation back in February, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for legal and physical custody over Phoenix, as well as spousal support.
In his emergency filing, Bam is also claiming he was never legally married to Nikki in the first place.
Nikki also filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, claiming there’s no reason to rush everyone back in front of a judge. Nikki says she’s abiding by the custody orders and Bam is still able to see their kid.
In the docs, Nikki shades Bam … she says he can see their son, as long as he’s in California and not under the influence.
Nikki’s attorney, David Glass, tells TMZ … “Mr. Margera continues to claim to be the ‘injured’ party because he isn’t seeing Phoenix – even though he placed himself 3000 miles away after exposing the child to abuse and drug/alcohol abuse.”
For his part, Bam’s claimed he’s sworn off drinking for his son’s sake.
