B18-0066: Domestic Partnership Judicial Determination of Parentage Act of 2009
Mendelson, Evans, Graham, M. Brown, Cotania, Brown, Barry, Wells, Thomas, Bowser, Gray
L.B. 66 radically departs from traditional norms of the family by amending the Parental Leave Act to include domestic partners within the definition of parents. It allows the domestic partner of a mother to be included on a birth certificate as a parent to the child. Further, it provides a presumption that the domestic partner of a woman who bears a child is a parent of the child. In addition, it limits a biological parent’s ability to disrupt a child’s stable parental relationship with the person who is married to or in a domestic partnership with the child’s mother.
