High court upholds co-parenting agreement of same-sex couple

When a same-sex custody issue occurs in the legal system, it often makes it into the news. This does not just apply to Columbus, Ohio - it applies to the whole country.

This same sex custody matter ends much differently than they usually do.

Sex change causes controversy for divorcing couple

The topic of same-sex marriage has been a popular discussion piece in the U.S. for some time now. Many states support same-sex unions, while others have outright bans against gays and lesbians getting married. Though the issue at hand is often how a person views marriage, the fact remains that many of these people have children. When divorce comes for these marriages, a custody agreement must be reached for any kids who are involved in the relationship.

A woman and her husband are choosing to divorce because she has decided to no longer hide the fact that she is a lesbian.

Fathers argue over son's move to another state

The worries of a homosexual man who shares legal custody of his adopted son with his former partner may be unfounded, according to the opposing attorney. The same-sex custody matter has left one father afraid that he will not be able to interact with his son as he once did because the father with residential custody has been granted permission to move out of state. This is a case that may shed light on interstate custody matters for those living in Ohio. The worried father believes that the state that his child is being moved to is hostile toward homosexuals and will not uphold the current custody status.

Same-sex divorce: it's complicated

Same-sex couples are often in the news for the equal marriage rights that so many desire.

Custody rights hard to obtain for gay couples in Ohio

If a gay rights group in Ohio achieves its goal, gays may be able to marry in the state after next year's November election. The organization, named FreedomOhio, has made a proposal and is seeking to have it placed on the 2013 ballot. The proposal is an amendment to the state constitution that would allow two consenting adults, regardless of their gender, to marry. Bigamists, first cousins and siblings would remain excluded.
