getting lesbian parental rights with adopted child
I'm currently out of a relationship with my ex which is the same sex as I. We have been separated for about 2.5 yrs and she has already taken away my visitations with him when I became involved with someone else. I'm single again and now everything is fine for know. History:Our son was adopted back in 2007 at 5 mos. He is in her name because at the time we were unsure if the gay thing was alloud and she is military and we at least needed him to be able to get those insurance benefits so no arguing that. Well now after lots of heartache behind not being able to see him once before I'm affraid it could happen again. While we are in good terms I would like to see what my rights are and how can I become his other legal parent?

I have a daughter who since the birth of my grandson has been in a lesbian relationship. My grandson is 22 months old. He is calling them both mommy and I am very concerned. Now they are breaking up and my daughter wants her ex girl friend to have rights over my grandson. The father is paying child support but not a real active part of his sons life. They are talking about him signing away his rights.The ex girl friend is trying to have my daughter sign papers giving her some kind of rights. I understand how the state of Florida feels about lesbian adoption but I need to know if this girl has any leg to stand on and is there anything I can do.

My divorce was finalized 5/19/11. No children involved. The
My divorce was finalized 5/19/11. No children involved. The Court awarded her maintenance of $700/mo. plus $5000 in her atty fees. 7 mos. later, I lost my job. My lawyer withdrew as the attorney of record and I filed and pursued a Modification of Maintenance motion myself (pro se), due to the fact I was on unemployment. 7 mos. later, the court ruled in my favor staying the payment of atty fees, and vacating the maintenance order. However the court reserved judgement on the reinstatement of Maintenance and the resumption of payments on the atty fees for a period of 5 yrs., stating that if I became employed during that period, we would go back to court for a possible reinstatement of maintenance. I have not been able to become re-employed, and have been surviving on odd jobs (building decks, remodeling, etc.). I remarried in 2013. My current wife is a waitress, and with her, her (minor) daughter and myself, our income is of such a level that we are on Medicaid. She recieves no child support from her daughter's father as he bounces around Utah and California avoiding child support payments. The reservation period on my Maintenance case is now up and my ex's atty has requested a hearing to reinstate maintenance. I am not afraid to filed papers and try the case myself, but I have some questions. Can you help? BTW, this is a Colorado case
