Children and Same Sex Marriages
The laws of this state in regards to the custody of children is founded upon what is in "the best interest of the child". I support this standard. As an attorney who practices family law, I know from first hand experience that every situation involving the custody of children is unique. I do not support or decline to support the custody of children being awarded to a parent who is involved in a same sex relationship. I do not support the position that a parent involved in a same sex relationship is automatically denied custody. I support the law which presently places "the best interest of the child" in the hands of the trial judge hearing the case; subject to the right of any party to appeal the court's decision.
