‘In that time frame that Chloe’s been gone, I was talking to attorneys and we were trying to figure out which way to go about getting Chloe back home.

‘But at the same time, it’s kind of like we were in a standstill because we were trying to figure out where we would end up in court because they live in like two or three different states,’ she explained. 

The Chrisleys moved to Tennessee after living in Atlanta.

Angela and Kyle Chrisley, the son of Todd and Julie Chrisley, welcomed Chloe in 2012.

Kyle lost custody of Chloe on account of his drug addiction in 2016, and then Todd was given sole custody of the child that same year after Angela was arrested for ‘allegedly filing a false application for Medicaid assistance,’ according to TMZ.

Angela subsequently ‘copped a plea to put the case behind her,’ according to TMZ.

Earlier this month Todd and Julie’s daughter Savannah Chrisley revealed her plans to take custody of her brother Grayson and niece Chloe.

Ahead of the news that her parents were both sentenced to lengthy prison terms on charges including bank fraud and tax evasion, the 25-year-old reality star discussed the possibility of becoming a legal guardian on her podcast Unlocked with Savannah Chrisley.

‘It’s just really hard to sit here, four days before I go sit in the courtroom,’ the former pageant queen told listeners. ‘I don’t know what my fate is, what my family’s fate is.’

She continued: ‘I know that the short term is going to be really difficult and I may come home without both of my parents. That’s what the chances are, that’s the likelihood and that’s my new normal.’

The Georgia native, who is best known for starring on Chrisley Knows Best from 2014 to 2021, got emotional as she envisioned the possibility of raising her sibling and niece.

While the duo will not begin their sentence on January 15, 2023, Savannah expressed fears of coming home on Tuesday with ‘custody of a 16-year-old, I have custody of a 10-year-old’ and spending their ‘first Thanksgiving not as a family.’

Savannah then spoke of feeling guilty that Grayson and Chloe will have ‘to worry about where’ their parents are.

‘I think that’s the hardest part, is me trying to navigate how to teach two children who aren’t fully developed yet, that. And how to navigate the circumstances. That’s a really difficult thing,’ she said of her show.

‘I have to be a positive role model for Chloe and Grayson,’ she later added. ‘No matter how hard it gets, I have to show up.’

Earlier this month Todd and his wife Julie Chrisley were sentenced to a combined nearly two decades in prison after being convicted of bank fraud and tax evasion nearly six months ago. 

While Todd, 54, is going away for 12 years, Julie, 49, will be behind bars for seven years and both will spend 16 months on probation following their respective releases.
