Kelly Rutherford is not going to take this fight lying down!
However, one of the biggest controversies was that the former soap actress initially refused to do so, making the German businessman accuse her of "child abduction."
Well now, the 46-year-old is addressing those claims.
On Friday, the Kentucky native appeared on Good Morning America where she talked — along with her lawyer Wendy Murphy — to Robin Roberts about her dilemma.
In regards to those kidnapping allegations, she said:
Kelly Rutherford REFUSES to be silenced!
As we reported on Tuesday, a NYC judge ordered the actress' children to be sent back to their father in Monaco immediately.
Well now, the Gossip Girl star released a statement vocalizing her distaste for the decision!
"What the judge did yesterday was shocking, illegal, and abusive to my children… Without any legal authority, a judge from the lowest ranking court in the state court system violated the highest ranking deferral constitutional rights of my American citizen children."
The thespian initially refused to hand over her two kids claiming she had no legal obligation to do so.
Kelly Rutherford's Custody Battle Gets Messier! She Ignores Today's Court Orders And Shows Up WITHOUT Her Kids!
Kelly Rutherford is taking a stand!
The thespian believes she is not legally required to perform such an action, while her ex Daniel Giersch vehemently disagrees.
Fast forward to Tuesday, the 46-year-old appeared in court…
Well this just keeps getting messier!
Kelly Rutherford has made it very clear that she believes she does not have to return her kids to her ex-husband Daniel Giersch in Monaco.
Rutherford's visitation period ended last week and since then, she's ignored the court order that was sent to her demanding to return the children to Daniel in Monaco.
The reason Kelly believes this is because she's claimed that she's been to L.A. and New York courts and judges in both states have said they have no jurisdiction over the case.
Well that may not ACTUALLY be true. Since Rutherford tried ignoring the court order, Daniel — who now claims she's a child abductor for ignoring the order — will be forced to appear in in court WITH her children on Tuesday.
A New York judge made the order under direction of Giersch that the actress needed to be notified by 3 p.m. today regarding tomorrow's hearing, but that notice can be sent by e-mail or secured Facebook message.
We'll see how this all unravels tomorrow, but for the sake of the kids, we hope things don't get any messier.

Kelly Rutherford & Her Ex-Husband Battle It Out Over Custody Of Their Kids With Accusations Of 'Child Abduction' And 'A Different Agenda'!
And the saga continues…
The Gossip Girl actress is simply ignoring the court order from his country that mandates them to return.
Well now the German businessman is fighting back.
In a statement released by him and his lawyer, Fahi Takesh Hallin, they have already prepared:
Love is in the air!
On Monday, it was revealed that Chace Crawford is reportedly dating his Blood and Oil co-star Rebecca Rittenhouse. AH-Mazing!
The Gossip Girl actor celebrated his 30th birthday on Saturday and was linked to the blonde beauty during his party at the London Hotel in West Hollywood, CA.
One insider shared:
"Rebecca was by Chace's side most of the night."
Hmm, very inneresting. Could it be that the Hollywood hottie's met the one?!
Another source explained:
Kelly Rutherford's glowing!
The Gossip Girl star hit the red carpet at the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund's 18th annual Super Saturday event in Water Mill, NY with her children Hermes and Helena this weekend. Despite the ongoing custody battle with her ex-husband Daniel Giersch, the trio were the picture of a happy family!
The blonde beauty and her mini-mes were all smiles as they were spotted in all white, making funny faces, and throwing up peace signs at the event. AH-Mazing!
Unfortunately, earlier in July a judge ruled that the actress was unable to continue to fight for custody of her children in California — as the original court ruling was in Monaco where Daniel lives.
Nonetheless, the 46-year-old received temporary sole custody for the summer — and it seems she's making the most of her time with her little ones. We're impressed with optimistic spirit!
We're so thrilled to see Kelly so happy after so much hardship. In fact, we have our fingers crossed that everything works out for her sooner than later.
What do U think of the family's red carpet appearance?!
