Depending on the circumstances of their custody and parenting agreements, when parents in Palm Beach are granted full custody of their children, it generally grants them the ability to determine where they, and their children, will live. In cases, however, in which a parent wants to move across the country, or even the world, it can create new challenges for parents to deal with.
The child custody dispute between “Gossip Girl” actress, Kelly Rutherford and ex-husband could potentially impact future cases with similar circumstances. According to reports, Rutherford’s ex-husband, who was born in Germany, had his U.S. visa revoked and was not allowed to re-enter the country after it was found there was some type of fraud involved with how he obtained his visa. Since Children’s father cannot travel to the U.S. to visit them, a family court judge awarded him custody of the couple’s seven and five-year-old son and daughter; Rutherford had previously had custody and been acting as the children’s primary caregiver.
