Does Ohio’s Gay Marriage Ban Void Custody Agreements Between Same-Sex Couples?

Lawyers for an Ohio woman have told an Ohio trial court that her former partner is wrong to argue that Ohio’s year-old constitutional ban on same-sex marriage voids their child custody agreement. Denise, who is the birth mother of a nine-year-old boy, asked the court to void the agreement with Therese because, she says, the amendment makes it unconstitutional. “Both women agreed to share custody to protect their son against just this kind of separation,” said an attorney involved in the case, and the Ohio constitutional amendment pertains to relationships between two adults, not the relationship between a parent and her child.
