Whatever is Best for the child.
Joint custody should be established, with physical custody going to the better parent. It's all about the well being of the child. 'Nuff said \m/

This question has an obvious answer. Whichever parent is best suited to take care of the child should gain custody. Their sexual orientation is irrelevant.

The best parent should always get custody, regardless of gender

And, how, would that be determined? Normally the BIO, has more legal clout in court.

Take into consideration if one partner has cheated or is less financially able to provide or is less available for the child or has a criminal record or is physically/verbally/emotionally abusive/manipulative or if the child expresses a preference etc.. The same way it's determined in heterosexual relationships where both the parents are biological. Sometimes it's hard to determine, sometimes it's obvious, sometimes it takes some investigation. Either way, the biological parent isn't necessarily the best-suited for raising the child

Based on your possible answers your question is not worth answering. It's just another self serving question.

It's what many law profs in top universities are discussing in preparation for new case law.

Self-serving? lol

Well, it is a little different, AS only one, is the BIO PARENT.

Just like when it's a man and a woman. Far too often I hear of children going to mentally ill, abusive mothers rather than supportive fathers, its heartbreaking, and I don't see why this should be any different.

If it's just two people not being able to work things out, then blood is an obvious heavy consideration; but if the kid's bio-dad is an *******, and the kid loves and is supported by the other, then why choose to place a child in a dysfunctional home?

If no biological parent exists then you cannot factually answer this question. Perhaps the answer is in the fact that those of the same *** cannot reproduce. Good Luck!

And in the case of adopted children? Shouldn't the same criteria be used for adopted children of hetero marriages: whatever is best for the child.
0 votes
answered by (2.3m points)
Assuming the parents involved has adopted the children. Yes, the same criteria should be part of the consideration. Again, in either case there is no factual conclusion. Now for the "fireworks".... I also believe you must make considerations from the "fact" they are ***.

This is a no-brainer. Of course the best interests of the child require that the best parent get the child.

I wonder why the *** qualification needs to be added to this question.
The usual criteria should apply.

Whichever partner nurtured the child the most should get primary custody and shared custody should go to the other partner. If it can be demonstrated that each partner contributed an equal share of the nurture of the child, an equally shared custody arrangement should be assigned.

If they both adopted than yes. If one is the biological and the other an adoptive parent, then the biological as long as they were determined fit. However if the other person did not adopt they don't have a right and the child may end up in foster care.

If there is not going to be joint custody, then the parent who is best for the interests of the child should get custody.

and when the child is old enough to think for themselves THEY SHOULD be able to make a THAT DECISION.. IT IS about WHERE they are safe and happy

Shared custody or whatever is best for the child. How is it any different than who gets custody of an adopted child? It depends on the situation.

Well, I think they should both have a right to custody (if they both want to and are both qualified). But if only one was to get custody, it should be given to the best parent. This should apply to all couples (regardless of sexual orientation or gender).

I agree that the courst system stinks. What's really scary is that it seems to be the best one in the world.
