The family court system works diligently to make decisions based on the best interests of the children involved; however, the rights of parents to visit or have access to children must also be respected. When Pennsylvania families need to seek family court assistance for an international child custody situation, a temporary order may be handed down to further explore the situation. A television star, Kelly Rutherford of Gossip Girl fame, has made news for her win in her international child custody fight.
The actress mom and her ex-husband married in 2006, and they then separated in 2008. A divorce was finalized in 2010. During that time, the couple had two children. Rutherford's ex-husband took the children overseas, where they have been living without Rutherford.
