All three charges are filed as Level 6 felonies, which carry sentences of six months – 2.5 years per charge.

The records also indicate that a no contact order has been filed, which can be typical for domestic abuse cases.

As we reported, Portwood's baby daddy went to court earlier in the day and started the process to get custody of their child, 1-year-old James.

Glennon filed a petition for paternity, and also for an emergency hearing regarding custody of their child.

Portwood is due in court Wednesday for her first appearance since her arrest over 4th of July weekend.

29-year-old Portwood began dating Glennon in 2017 after the two met on the set of "Marriage Boot Camp."

Portwood already has a 9-year-old daughter, Leah, with former BF, Gary Shirley.

After Portwood's arrest, Shirley sent a message of support.

He wrote, "My prayers are with @AmberLPortwood, Andrew, & most importantly baby James, idk any of the particulars, however I’m thinking of them. And for all the questions and concerns Leah was/is currently camping with her best friend."

It's unclear if the current felony charges will have any effect on her custody situation with Shirley.
