Abstract

Semi-structured, in-depth interviews were completed with eleven legalservice professionals including District Court judges, attorneys, guardian ad litems, and court evaluators in Denver, Colorado to explore the issues lesbian mothers face in child custody cases. Respondents agreed that in Colorado courts, even though a mother's sexual orientationshould only be treated as an issue when it creates adverse effects onthe child's mental and emotional well-being (the nexus approach), in many cases judges decide against these mothers solely based on their sexual orientation without taking any evidence into account (per se approach). Future research focusing on custody standards and the legal obstacles these mothers are facing is proposed.
