The Michigan Supreme Court has made a landmark ruling in a case of a woman seeking custody of her ex-partner’s child who was born before their relationship ended and before same-sex marriage was legalized. She has no biological ties but helped raise him when he was born in 2008. She says she and her partner would have been married if it was allowed at the time. Even after their relationship ended, they continued co-parenting until her ex demanded she stop having contact with the child in 2017. She may now seek custody through her home county court in Kalamazoo.
