Mother Gains Parental Rights Over Lesbian

Ad Feedback

A Utah judge has ruled in favor of a mother's parental rights over her former lesbian partner.
In 2006, Jana Dickson had an agreement with her former partner Gena-Louise Edvalson to share in the parenting of her newborn son.

After the relationship ended, Edvalson sued Dickson, who is now a Christian and married to a man, demanding the mother honor the contract and grant her former partner parental standing in the boy's life.
The Alliance Defense Fund reported that Dickson left the relationship and took her son with her.
Edvalson tried to sue for parental rights. But Judge Leon Anthony Dever of Utah's Third District Court dismissed the case saying any contracts that offend public policy are void.

The judge's ruling came in spite of the parenting plan for co-guardianship that the two women had signed.

In dismissing the lawsuit, the court ruled state public policy designed to protect the best interests of children trumps any such agreements that people make, especially when there are no allegations of abuse or neglect.
