Basketball ace Allen Iverson has been ordered to attend therapy and alcohol recovery meetings in order to spend time with his five children.
An Atlanta, Georgia judge recently signed off on the U.S. sportsman's split from wife Tawanna Turner and awarded her legal and physical custody of their kids, according to Tmz.com.
However, Iverson will have some visitation rights if he abides by a handful of rules set in their divorce decree.

American basketball star Allen Iverson has managed to stall a planned auction to sell off his foreclosed Atlanta, Georgia mansion by filing legal papers objecting to the sale.
The former Nba icon's $4.5 million (£2.8 million) home was due to go under the hammer on Tuesday (04Dec12) after he allegedly defaulted on his mortgage, but the auction was pulled at the last minute as Iverson claimed he never consented to the bank loan.
The sportsman blames his estranged wife Tawanna, who he is in the process of divorcing, insisting she signed for the mortgage plan in his name even though she knew he could not afford the $1.2 million (£750,000) payment, according to Tmz.com.

U.S. basketball superstar Allen Iverson's estranged wife has requested a restraining order against her husband.
Tawanna Iverson has filed court documents asking a judge to keep him away from her and her family, according to Tmz.com.
In the papers, her lawyers allege Iverson has "engaged in increasingly contemptuous, threatening, and disturbing behavior."
Allen Iverson launched "an expletive-ridden tirade" at police when his car was pulled over for a traffic violation last week, reports CNN. 35-year-old Allen Iverson, a former Nba star, told one officer, "Take the vehicle, I have 10 more", when he was pulled over on 30th March 2011.

50 Cent will not be called upon to testify as a character witness in basketball star Allen Iverson's upcoming assault case, because the rapper lives too far away.
The Denver Nuggets baller has been hit with charges including assault and conspiracy in relation to a bar fight involving the star and his security in Washington in 2005.
Two unnamed men are suing Iverson as a result of the altercation, where he is accused of hitting one of them with a bottle.
Although 50 Cent was not involved in the incident or named in the lawsuit, he is said to know members of Iverson's security, and attorneys for the two plaintiffs have appealed to the rapper to give evidence regarding the defendants' usual behaviour.
But a federal judge has this week (ends15Jun07) excused the In Da Club hitmaker from court duties, because as he lives more than 100 miles (160 kilometers) away from the courthouse in Connecticut and is not directly involved in the case, she has no authority to order his appearance in a Washington state court, reports AllHipHop.com.
Iverson's trial is set to begin on 27 June (07).
Will Smith has confirmed he is in negotiations to buy his home town basketball team Philadelphia 76ers.
The movie actor and former basketball star JULIUS IRVING are in the middle of talks to take over the team, which features sports hero Allen Iverson.
Smith says, "We're looking into the purchase of the Sixers."
If the buy-out goes through, Smith will join the likes of Nelly and JAY-Z, who are the co-owners of National Basketball Association (NBA) teams the CHARLOTTE BOBCATS and New Jersey Nets respectively.
Nas and his wife Kelis are the targets of a new book by an ex-girlfriend who claims the rapper wanted to have a threesome with both women.
CARMEN BRYAN claims Nas - real name NASIR JONES - beat her, cheated on her and cut off her child support, and then invited her for a threesome with MILKSHAKE singer Kelis before the two were married.
According to New York Daily News columnist BEN WIDDICOMBE, Bryan claims she cheated on Nas with JAY-Z and Allen Iverson and that Nas beat her "with a closed fist" after finding out about one fling.
Bryan says she then "pulled out my pepper spray from my back pocket and sprayed Nas down like he was some rabid pit bull" when he cheated.
The self-described "hip-hop Helen Of Troy" also says Nas once turned down a date with Beyonce Knowles because he said, "To be honest, I can't take her breath."
By all rights, "Like Mike" should be a lousy movie. Designed as a slap-dash kiddie flick, built around a dumb plot device (magic sneakers turn a young orphan into an NBA all-star) and starring a flash-in-the-pan novelty hip-hopper (Lil' Bow Wow), its overall concept is thick with seemingly predictable, third-hand story elements. Will the kid find adoptive parents? Will his team win the big game? Well, duh.
But director John Schultz ("Drive Me Crazy") doesn't use the shoes as a storytelling crutch (they account for about four minutes of the whole movie), he gets charismatic performances from his cast of talented players, and he beats down almost every encroaching cliché, creating in their stead a smart kids' picture of delightful surprises.
Sure, as the film begins street-smart but endearingly sweet 14-year-old Calvin Cambridge (Bow Wow) is living in a laughably diverse group home (his two best friends are a white boy played by "Jerry Maguire's" Jonathan Lipnicki and an Asian girl played by Brenda Song), where he's picked on by a teenage bully and dreams of being adopted. "Parents only want the puppies," he moans.
