Fans in Illinois of Kelly Rutherford may have been following her very complicated child custody battle. Initially, a California court ordered that Rutherford's ex-husband have custody of the children in Monaco after he lost his visa and had to return to the country. Since then, Rutherford has had to fly to Monaco in order to see her children.
Recently, she made another attempt to bring her child back to the United States. However, a California judge ruled that the state did not have jurisdiction over the matter since Rutherford did not live in the state enough of the time to establish residence. This was very frustrating for Rutherford since it was a California court that made the initial decision and she resided in California about the same amount of time then.
