NY Ex-Girlfriend Files Action to Be Considered Second-Parent of Adoptive Mom’s Child

October 2016, New York:  Report that the ex-partner of a lesbian adoptive mother has filed a legal challenge against the adoptive mom who states that she is the only legal parent of her adopted child even though ex-partner might have been involved in raising the child but never co-adopted.  It appears that the filing was triggered after adoptive mom and child sought to move out of the country without the ex-partner.  This case seeks to build on an August 2016 case establishing that a non-adoptive/non-legal person may be able to file to seek visitation with a child under certain circumstances.
