100K signatures reached in White House petition over child custody

Actress Kelly Rutherford’s petition to the White House over a child custody dispute has reached the 100,000 signatures required for it to be addressed by the administration, according to a report by The Washington Post on May 13.

Two days after Mother’s Day, the actress was able to secure 100,000 signatures for her campaign, warranting the Obama administration to address the custody battle over her two kids, 8-year-old son Hermes and 5-year-old daughter Melrose. The actress is embroiled in an ugly child custody dispute with her ex, German businessman Daniel Giersch, who has been residing in France with the children after a judge granted him custody in April 2012. Giersch is not permitted to reenter the country after losing his visa in 2009 due to their split, and Rutherford has to travel repeatedly to France to see her children.
