NY's Highest Court Redefines ParentThe Court of Appeals issued a ruling on August 30, 2016 entitled In the Matter of Brooke S.B. vs. Elizabeth A. C.C. (28 NY3d 1, 2016 NY Slip Op. 05903) which overturned the case of Matter of Alison D. v. Virginia M. (77NY2d 651, 572 NE2d 27, 569 NYS2d 586) decided in 1991. In Matter of Alison D., the Court of Appeals held that in an unmarried couple, a partner without a biological or adoptive relation to a child is not the child’s “parent” for purposes of standing to seek custody or visitation under New York law.
