Daniel Giersch, Kelly Rutherford’s former spouse who has sole legal custody of their children will certainly be one of our Fathers of the Year for 2015. He is ending the year by early media reports that he is suing Vanity Fair over “untrue and defamatory assertions” in the November 2015 issue.

Finally, a father has stepping up in an attempt to make the media accountable for stories in divorce and family abduction cases involving young children. The media has rarely been sensitive to a father and his children that have been targeted by a custodial-embattled protective mom like Kelly Rutherford that will sling every allegation (even false or deceptive ones). And the media, in the Rutherford Case having been accused of “Kelly-Heavy Spin” against her former spouse in our opinion practiced spoon-fed journalism in printing just about everything from the Rutherford PR Team. With the Rutherford custody order  posted online, at times, you had to wonder if the reporter for Vanity Fair or some of the other Media Reporters actually read it.

So if the early media reports are correct, in 2016 Daniel Giersch will attempt to make reporter Sheila Weller and her Editors and Vanity Fair accountable for their actions. That is a good thing for not only the Fathers in these cases but for both parents and most importantly the children.

Breaking: Kelly Rutherford’s Former Spouse Gets Sole Custody

December 16, 2015

Protective Parent Movement Supporter Kelly Rutherford has lost her on-going attempt to gain sole custody of her children. The Daily Mail.com has obtained a copy of the November 25, 2015 Monaco Court Order that has awarded sole legal custody to her former spouse and modifies her previous joint custody order that allowed her to take her children to the United States for Holidays and Summers. The Court also gave her former spouse permission to obtain German Passports for the children.

Kelly Rutherford will be able to have her custody time with her children in Monaco (unsupervised). She can no longer be trusted not to withhold custody or kidnap her children.

In August 2015, Kelly Rutherford engaged in a parental kidnapping or an International Family Abduction of her children. She intentionally disobeyed a court order to return her children to Monaco after their summer vacation custody time with her in New York. Judges or the Family Law Courts do not like parents to withhold custody or engage in this act of civil disobedience. This came only months after Kelly Rutherford and her attorney were speakers at a Protective Parent Movement Conference in the Northeast (We learned in April 2015 that she was a speaker at this conference and predicted that she might engage in a parental kidnapping).

Kelly Rutherford, the Monaco Court No Longer Trusts Her to Bring Kids to the U.S.

For Kelly Rutherford’s fans and the entertainment media, there is no custody order that is permanent. As the children get older, eventually she can either convince her former spouse that she can be trusted to coparent her children. Her “American Born” children can and will be able to travel to the United States. She can also petition the Monaco for a modification to the previous custody order.

Like many other protective moms that withhold custody or kidnap their children, Kelly Rutherford has not lost custody time with her children. The court has not restricted her time with her children in Monaco. What she did do like other protective moms is to not respect the Family Law Court’s Custody Order. And once again she will continue to portray herself as a victim and criticize the Family Law Courts.

Editor’s Note: We think celebrities in America should be held to a higher standard. We would like to see Kelly Rutherford apologize to her fans and supporters and promote coparenting and speak out against International Family Abductions. It’s also time for her her to disassociate herself with the Protective Parent Movement.

We also applaud the efforts of Kelly Rutherford’s former spouse Daniel Giersch and his Los Angeles International Family Law Attorney Fahi Takesh Hallin. They respected the U.S. and Monaco Family Law Court process. The end result is that when parents divorce, it needs to be about coparenting and joint custody in “the best interests of the children”. This case should help remind those Family Court Critics that the system does work.

Breaking: Kelly Rutherford says Judge Gesmer was Cruel & Uncaring

Kelly Rutherford says Judge was Cruel & Uncaring

Kelly Rutherford is ripping into the judge she says effectively “arrested” her children, and sent them back to their father … who she claims lied to the court to get his way.

Rutherford says Judge Ellen Gesmer’s ruling to send the kids back to Daniel Giersch was “shocking, illegal, and abusive to my children.” She adds that Gesmer “lacked sufficient knowledge of the law, or didn’t care that she was violating the law.” She insists the ruling violates the Constitution because the children are U.S. citizens.

Rutherford also says her ex lied so he could get an emergency order. She says Giersch told the court he didn’t know where Kelly and the kids were, but she says the truth is … he Skyped with the kids several times, and always knew they were safe. She saved her last jab for Gesmer, saying … “She has to live with herself, and if she has a conscience, I suspect she will not sleep well, ever again.”

Kelly Rutherford Statement (Kelly Rutherford, 08-12-2015)


Judge Ellen Gesmer Rules to Return Rutherford Children to Monaco

August 11, 2015

American’s Family Court System did the right thing today by acting swiftly and decisively in sending Kelly Rutherford’s children home with Renita Giersch, their grandmother back to Monaco. These children needed to return to Monaco to their habitual residence and so they could start the new school year.

On August 6, 2015, Kelly Rutherford engaged in an International Family Abduction or Parental Kidnapping by violating her International Custody Agreement and not sending the children back to Monaco. Both a Judge in Monaco and in the United States stepped in earlier this year to ensure that agreement was enforced so Rutherford could spend the summer with her children. Unfortunately, for the last five days Rutherford has been intentionally concealing the children from their father and his custody rights.

Today, Judge Ellen Gesmer of the New York Supreme Court held a hearing and ordered Kelly Rutherford to send the children to Monaco. Rutherford has been a litigious custodial-embattled parent that has been unable to accept the Decision made in October 2013 by a Los Angeles County Judge after a very long custody hearing that took numerous days and involved three professional evaluators and a guardian ad-litem attorney to represent the children. For those that haven’t read the Decision it is still available online. It is a very long read but contains some really specific facts that led the court to give the child’s father custody. Unfortunately, Kelly Rutherford was not deemed by the Judge and the Professionals involved with this case to be a suitable parent for promoting coparenting of these children — and that’s putting it nicely. We are not going to detail specifics, because these children deserve their privacy and eventually this order should be sealed by the court. Kelly Rutherford also needs time to heal and refocus her energies at rebuilding her credibility with the Courts.

Currently, there is no International Custody Court and the attempt by the Monaco Court, the U.S. Court in Los Angeles and now Judge Ellen Gesmer’s court in New York to work together is a monumental step in International Custody Cases. Again, we applaud Judge Gesmer for acting swiftly and decisively in this case and shutting down the media circus.

A Custody Hearing will be held in Monaco on September 3, 2015.

Breaking: Kelly Rutherford Arrives to Court – Without Kids

Kelly Rutherford Arriving To Court Without Kids

With Daniel Giersch’s mother, their grandmother waiting in the courtroom to bring her grandchildren back to Monaco so they can start school, TMZ is reporting that Kelly Rutherford arrived at the New York Courthouse without the children.


Will Kelly Rutherford Show Up with the Kids in Court Tomorrow?

August 10, 2015

Kelly Rutherford and Tony Brand were last seen driving to an undisclosed location. She gave an interview to ABC News on Monday, August 10th. Her last post to her Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts were on Friday, August 8th.

On Thursday, August 6, 2015, source are reporting that a private plane was waiting to pickup Kelly’s children for a flight to Nice. Rutherford and her children were a no show. At this point, we don’t even know if Rutherford contacted her former spouse.

Most parental kidnappers like Kelly Rutherford are narcissistic, histrionic and impulsive. You simply do not know what they will do next. Rutherford claims about her children: “Their safety is my priority”. Yet she has now allegedly kidnapped them for over 4 days.

There are sources that are now reporting that Rutherford is providing a reason for kidnapping them, “that her children had told her some alarming things about their time in Monaco”. Wow, it now sounds like she has moved from a false weapons and drug dealer allegation against her former spouse to new allegations.

We have no idea if Kelly Rutherford will be showing up in court on Tuesday. For the sake of her kidnapped children, we hope she does.


Why We’re Not Signing Kelly Rutherford’s Whitehouse Petition

Kelly Rutherford, Parental Alienation

Accused of Parental Alienation

“In his (sic) decision, obtained by TMZ, the judge chose to make Kelly’s ex Daniel Giersch the “residential parent” because “Daniel (who lives in France) has facilitated the relationship of the children with Kelly … and Kelly simply has not done so.”

1) It is well documented that Kelly Rutherford engaged in parental alienation against her former spouse. She and her attorney Wendy Murphy can deny it, but is appears to be widely reported that’s Kelly Rutherford didn’t necessarily practice first rate co-parenting skills during her custody dispute.

2) Kelly Rutherford is using her celebrity status to ask the President of the United States to overturn or ignore the California Family Court Judge’s Order. She wants to blame the Family Court System rather than take responsibility for her own actions.

3) I personally think that celebrities should be held to higher standards just like professional athletes. In 2014, the National Football League was clearly pressured by the media and special interest groups to take action on domestic violence incidents among their athletes. But in the case of Kelly Rutherford, the media appears to want to give her a free pass on this.

4) Kelly Rutherford should show some respect for our nation’s Family Court System. Rutherford and certainly her attorney Wendy Murphy know that there are no such things as permanent custody orders. Rutherford can always go back to California Family Law Court to petition the court for a change of the custody schedule.

Instead of playing victim in this situation and possibly inciting other custodial embattled mothers, I would like to see Kelly Rutherford step forward and take ownership of her known present or past issue with parental alienation. Now that’s an issue that is worth supporting!

5/12/2015 Update: Kelly Rutherford got her 100K signatures thanks to Kim Kardashian and Ed Westwick. At the end of the day, she is still a parental alienator. I am certain that many people signed her petition because she claims she is broke and can’t see her kids. That’s far from the truth. She can go to Europe and see her kids anytime. I would bet that she talks to them regularly on the phone. She’s probably telling them that mommy is fighting for you which is parental alienation. She really needs to spend less time protesting and more time rebuilding her reputation with the California Judge. It sounds like she is headed in the wrong direction.
