A final ruling was not made in the Monaco court when Kelly Rutherford and Daniel Giersch faced off a couple of days ago, but Kelly did get something nice: the judge allowed her a two-week visit with their kids, Hermes and Helena. Daniel is requesting “sole parental authority,” and a judge will rule on that on November 26.
Kelly had this to say about the judge’s ruling that she gets to spend some time with her kids:
It was a positive outcome today. I get to be with the kids for a couple of weeks.”
I can see where she would enjoy that! It’s good that the court really does seem to be trying to support her having a relationship with her kids.
The question before the Monaco court, however, is whether or not Hermes and Helena will stay in Monaco or return to the United States with Kelly. Daniel’s bid for “sole parental authority” would mean that Kelly cannot move the children to the US to live with her. Sources close to the case claim that Kelly’s refusal to return the children to Monaco last summer is working against her.
Kelly is paying for what she did in August, unfortunately. It wasn’t kidnapping — it was a concerned mom not wanting to put her kids on a plane to Monaco. But because of what she did, it’s making it a lot harder for her to get her kids back.”
The expected ruling, which is scheduled to be made on November 26, will most likely give Kelly access to her kids in Monaco and France but not allow them the return to the United States with her. I was afraid of this. Why would the court risk a repeat episode of what happened last summer? We’ll see what happens.
