Read the article. The couple married in VT, lived in VT until the breakup, the split was presided over by a VT court, and THEN she moved to Virginia.
Isnt this the case where the non-bio lesbian was forcing the little girl to bathe nude with her during visitations?
And the little girl was begging her real Mom not to make her go stay with the lesbo Mom?
and the punitive court reaction to bio Mom request to end visitation was to give sole custody to the non-bio related lesbo? and that is when birth Mom went underground?
Imagine if a “Daddy” forecd a little girl to bathe nude with him? That lesbian is a man in a woman’s body
Good for birth Mom. And God Bless the people who helped her and her child escape from this nightmare of a controlling lesbian neurotic. Only a few more years and the child will be old enough to tell tales and defend her revulsion, unlike a scared little girl. Only 8 more years and she is 18 and able to make her own choices, but birth Mom is probably Nicarauguan forever to stay out of US prison and out of reach of the LGBT mafia
The two women lived in Virginia but went to Vermont to obtain a civil union in 2000. The couple split in Vermont, and Lisa Miller moved back to Virginia with her daughter after renouncing her homosexuality.
So Virginia residents moved to Vermont to get a gay marriage that is not even recognized in Virgina (and I think the DOMA said Virginia doesn't have to recognize it), and one of them moved back to Virginia with her biological child which Virginia doesn't recognize as the child of the "friend". Left unsaid is whether they changed domiciles, and if so, whether the mother changed domicile back to Virginia when she returned. It doesn't take any specific length of time to establish domicile, just a presence in the state and an intention to make it your residence.
Also unreported in this article is whether the legal action was started in vermont when both were living there. If so, she was indeed subject to Vermont's jurisdiction. That is why I was asking the question, to sort out how she became subject to Vermont, given the DOMA and other jurisdictional issues. As you can see from reading the article, a lower VA court said VT can suck it. I think that is probably the proper ruling, and that a leftist appeals court screwed it up. The point of DOMA is that states that are not progressive hellholes don't have to go along with those that are about gay marriage.
So, don't live your day being a jerk.
