When you marry a person, you never have the slightest clue just how ruthless they can be. This was the case for Kelly Rutherford. She met and married who she thought was the love of her life. Daniel Giersch checked out of the marriage and a 3 year long custody battle has been going in full-force. The real problem is that Giersch went to live in Monaco and this area took legal rights over the children. How doesn’t even seem to be possible, but because he had visitation with the children and lived so far away, they decided to make them move to France so that his vitiation schedule could be carried out. Where does this leave Rutherford? It leaves her unable to see her children and communicate with them?
Recently animal rights activists say that she reached out to President Obama for help. Because the children are US citizens and Monaco has taken custody of them, a grievous wrong has occurred. It appears her plea to Obama has some bearing, as the children were ordered to come home while the trial is under way. She has to travel to this country if she wants to see her children. This is not only costly, but impossible with her schedule. It’s been going on for sometimes and a new trial date is scheduled in June. One would think that as an American citizen that another country would have no say in the matter.
