Actress Kelly Rutherford has been in an ongoing custody battle with her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, since 2009. After a contentious divorce, and a bitter custody battle, the couple’s two young children live in France with Giersch. Rutherford attempted to have a court ruling overturned, but a judge refused to grant the request. While continuing to pursue custody of her children who live in another country, Rutherford created the Children’s Justice Campaign. The organization helps families navigate the complicated family court system and protect the welfare of children.
Rutherford has been vocal about her experiences with the family court system which, in her opinion, is broken and does not have the children’s best interests at heart. Her goal in creating the Children’s Justice Campaign is to provide an outlet that will help families who are also trying to settle difficult custody disputes. The Mission Statement of the Children’s Justice Campaign is “to bring awareness to the injustices happening to children in the family court system today. Working together with the courts and legislators, we can modernize laws. Our goal is to transform the standards of practice so that they honor the needs of children – making their health and safety the top priority in divorce and custody litigation.”
Child custody cases like Rutherford’s can be extremely complicated and fraught with emotions. When the divorce is particularly unpleasant, it can have devastating, long-lasting effects on the children. If you live in Maryland and are facing a custody battle, it is in your best interest to consult an experienced Baltimore divorce lawyer, particularly one that specializes in child custody disputes, who can navigate the complexities of Maryland child custody law and resolve all child custody issues as quickly and seamlessly as possible.
