Who will have custody of Lisa Marie Presley’s underage twins, Finley and Harper?
According to court records acquired by The Sun, her ex-husband Michael Lockwood, who is the father of the 14-year-old twins, recently asked for privacy.
The problematic only child of the King of Rock’n’ Roll, Elvis Presley, passed away on January 12 after experiencing two cardiac arrests. Riley Keough, her oldest daughter, and her twins were left behind.
According to insiders who talked to TMZ, Lisa Marie’s fourth husband, Michael, has a decent chance of winning full custody of their kids and has made it obvious that they want to live with him full-time.
When their mother passed away, they have been residing with Michael and his new wife.
There were speculations that Lisa Marie’s second husband, Danny Keough, could wish to take custody of the young women.
He moved in with Lisa Marie, Finley, and Harper two years after the passing of their son Benjamin Keough.
Danny would not be eligible for custody under California law, but he may still make a legal argument for it.
Michael Lockwood’s attorney Joseph Yanny recently sought a case management meeting and asked that it be kept confidential, according to court records that the outlet was able to obtain. Thankfully, a court approved it.
The conference is scheduled for next month as the Presley family considers their future moves while the twins cope with the loss of their mother Lisa Marie, according to the filings.
The scheduling meeting may be the first of multiple court appearances before a domestic case’s trial date, according to The Sun.

Meanwhile, a legal expert told the publication that if two people share custody of the children and one of them passes away, control would automatically pass to the remaining parent.
“Family members could ask for visitation or custody of the children if there are issues with the surviving parent, but generally, the children’s father in this situation would have custody.”
The expert emphasized that in some situations, third parties-like Danny-may find it challenging to get custody, and that family members might not have any legal grounds to contest the custody arrangement.
Michael Lockwood and Lisa Marie Presley already shared custody of the twins following the legal struggle, which, according to Michael Lockwood, has left him in financial trouble.
