Are there special issues if a gay or lesbian parent is seeking custody/time-sharing or visitation rights?

Yes, the most important issue is making sure that each parent is considered the legal parent of the child until you are determined to be the legal parent, you may not seek timesharing. In a gay or lesbian relationship or one or both parents may not be the biological parent of the child, it is important to speak with a lawyer who can help you in establishing your legal rights prior to seeking timesharing.
