B.F. V. T.D.
FAMILY LAW: Child custody (de facto custodian, visitation, and same sex couple)
SCOKY denied a woman visitation and custody rights regarding a child adopted by her former female partner. Specifically, Lambert writing for the majority held that "B.F." did not qualify as the child’s "de facto custodian" because she was not the primary caregiver despite the fact she participated "substantially in the support and rearing of a child for a significant period of time." The same-sex couple lived together as a "two-parent" family. Michael Stevens, ed.
