People: Kelly Rutherford: What the Order to Bring Kids to the U.S. Means for Her Custody Case

Kelly Rutherford’s online “We the People” petition asking for the government to intervene in her six-year custody case reached the 100,000 mark – meaning the White House will review her request and issue a response.

Nancy Chemtob, who specializes in divorce and custody battles at New York firm Chemtob Moss & Forman, says Rutherford should file what she calls a “relocation plea” based on the rules set forth by the Hague Convention, an agreement among more than 90 nations to protect the interests of children, usually with regards to adoption. Chemtob acknowledges the petition is a powerful “public cry.” Still, she says fighting for the children on constitutional grounds would likely not sway a judge – especially since this is not a kidnapping case and Giersch was granted custody by an American court.
