Kentucky guardian can’t have children with court order
A Kentucky man who was given the option to have children of his own with his legal guardian may be forced to adopt the children or face jail time.
Key points:Kentucky Supreme Court says Kentucky’s “lawful guardianship” law does not apply to same-sex couplesKentucky has the most restrictive “lawfulness” law in the country, says Justice John P. King.
The case is one of a number of recent legal challenges to the Kentucky “lawfully guardian” law.
The law says a guardian must have the legal guardian’s consent to have a child and states that the court can approve a temporary guardian to have custody.
A judge in the town of Harris County has now issued a temporary guardianship order to the man, who has a long history of abusing his position as a legal guardian.
He can’t legally adopt children, but he can petition for an adoption under a new law passed in November, which allows for parents to have “legal guardians” who will adopt the child.
“The court finds that the temporary guardians’ consent is required and that the consent is obtained with respect to the adoption of a child,” the Kentucky Supreme Court said.
It said the court will hear the case again next week.
It is not clear whether the temporary guardian will be allowed to adopt children.
The court also said it has no jurisdiction to consider any other petition from the man for a court order.
But the man could face jail for up to 18 months for the act of “petitioning for adoption”.
The man is an attorney who has defended many people against legal guardianship.
In a statement, his wife said he is a good man who always tries to do the right thing and does not deserve to be held in contempt for his legal guardians.
“I have always been a good husband and father, but I am a legal adult now and I know I have a responsibility to my children,” she said.
“My husband has always been respectful and kind to my daughters and they know he cares deeply about them.”
This is not a good situation for me, but it’s the best thing I can do for my children.
“A court spokeswoman said the case will be heard by a judge in Harris.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Family and Protective Services said: “The department cannot comment on individual cases and has no involvement in a person’s custody or visitation issues.”
The law has sparked an outpouring of support from both gay and straight people across the US.
In the last week, several states have made same-gender marriage legal, and there are plans to legalize it nationwide.
A court in Florida overturned a ruling by a lower court that gave same-year marriage the same legal status as civil unions.
