25 Years After “Alison D”
Total Credits: 2.0 Professional Practice
This program explores the 25-year evolution of the concept of standing to seek custody/visitation for same-sex parents, reviews notable estoppel cases and investigates the presumption of legitimacy. In the companion cases known as In re Brooke S.B. and In re Estrellita A., the Court of Appeals held that the definition of “parent” established a quarter of a century ago in Allison D. v. Virginia M. to be unworkable in the face of increasingly varied families. Gain valuable insight by attorneys who argued each case in the Court of Appeals, and discover future applications of Brooke/Estrellita for parents involved in same-sex and heterosexual relationships.
