Evans’ divorce filing was confirmed by her attorney, Dustin R. T. Sullivan to E! News. "Jenelle is only seeking a divorce from Mr. Rogers at this time,” Sullivan said. "She is not seeking any support of any kind. She is looking forward to a new chapter in her life."
While Evans is just now filing for divorce, her marriage with Rogers deteriorated not long after they exchanged vows. Just a month after they tied the knot, Evans filed six counts of assault – four on a female and two of an unborn child – against Rogers. Rogers ultimately pleaded guilty to one count of assault on a female and a count of battery on a unborn child. By pleading out, he only received 24 months of supervised probation.
Evans is likely eager to officially divorce from Rogers, as she’s now engaged to wannabe model and MMA fighter Nathan Griffith. Not only are they engaged, but Evans is also expecting their first child together. Things haven’t always been smooth sailing for the pair, which made Griffith nervous about bringing a child into the world together. However, they seemed resolved to make it work on a episode of Teen Mom 2 last month.

“Are you positive you want another child? What if we don’t work out?” Griffith asked Evans after seeing the positive pregnancy test. “I know that for a little bit there we were hitting the rocks and stuff like that, we think we’re still going to have a stable relationship? Do you think this will bring us closer?”
Reassuring her husband-to-be, Evans said, “I think it’s going to bring us closer because if anything we argue over little things,” adding, “So if we have a baby then I think we’ll less likely to argue because we’ll be busy all the time with each other.”
