A judge ruled yesterday that Gossip Girl actress Kelly Rutherford cannot force her ex-husband to bring their two kids from France to the US. Kelly's ex lost his visa to stay in the United States and has their kids in France. A judge said that the kids can stay there because Kelly has an enormously flexible schedule and can spend 50% of her time with them there if she chooses. For someone who does not have the flexibility, assets or time off this would be a horrible decision. I understand Kelly wants her kids to be with her in New York, but if she did her ex could never see them unless Kelly brought them to France to see him since her ex cannot travel to the US. Kelly can travel to France. There is a big difference. Of course the couple could always do what Seal and Heidi do and hire nannies and bodyguards to shuttle their kids all over the world to meet up with their parents. What do you do if you are the judge in this case? Kelly says it is inconvenient for her to go to France and she will never get to spend meaningful time with them.
