Legal Question

Asked on: 9/15/13, 1:57 pm

I am currently writing a book about a boy with two (gay) dads, but his biological mother has custodial rights. I was wondering if there was a way for his dad's partner to obtain guardianship of the boy in the case of his biological father's death, or if his mother would be the automatic caretaker of him.

Unless she has already been adjudged unfit, the mother would retain custody of the child. His father's boyfriend would be behind all four grandparents, aunts and uncles.
