Making The Complex Understandable

Divorce case involves unique child custody issues

Divorce involves many different emotions, issues and challenges. These elements can often blend unharmoniously together as separating couples conflate their personal differences with the pragmatic matters to be addressed. This particularly true with child custody, which tends to be closest to the heart for both fathers and mothers. This why it's often one of the most intense parts of the divorce process. For that reason, many Louisiana couples have been observing the unfolding details of the Kelly Rutherford child custody case.

Rutherford, 45, is famous for having been a part of the hit television show "Gossip Girl." She has also been on "Generations," "Melrose Place" and "Homefront." Her divorce battle has made nationwide headlines.

At the center of it is the fact that her 4-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son currently reside with their father in Monaco. This in accordance with a ruling by a family court judge in the United States. It gives the children's father de facto primary custody, even though legal custody is technically shared with Rutherford.

The former "Gossip Girl" star split from her now-ex-husband, a German millionaire, in 2009. The fight over where the kids will live has gone on since then. In between the original split and now, Rutherford has gone abroad 45 times to exercise visitation with the children, who are reportedly thriving in their father's care.

With divorce often being acrimonious, having an experienced family law attorney to protect your rights is valuable. In addition to fighting for child custody, your attorney can also help in matters involving child support, alimony and property division.
