Prior to specializing in U.S. Immigration and Nationality Law, Managing Partner Michael Wildes was a former Federal Prosecutor with the United States Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn (1989-1993). This past week, he appeared with Kelly Rutherford, best known for her television roles as Stephanie “Sam” Whitmore on the NBC daytime soap opera Generations, as Megan Lewis on the Fox primetime soap opera Melrose Place, and as Lily van der Woodsen on The CW series Gossip Girl, in attempt to keep her U.S. citizen children in the United States. Kelley’s ex-husband was born in Germany and is now living in France with the children.  Kelly is working hard to overrule a California judge’s custody order and to force the U.S. government to renew her children’s father’s visa so that children can live in the United States with both parents.
According to Kelly “I went bankrupt fighting to keep my own children in my own country as a U.S. citizen…My ex-husband got kicked out of the country and my children are with him,” she added. “I’m not the one that got my visa revoked.”
