Abstract

A recent decision from the Wyoming Supreme Court, L.P. v. L.F. arises in a more idiosyncratic scenario, but nonetheless raises familiar issues about whether courts or legislatures should recognize the doctrine; whether functional parentage should ever be a sufficient basis for the acquisition of parental rights; and whether de facto parentage can be reconciled with the constitutionally protected parental rights of the child’s legal parent.
