Judge rules in civil union custody dispute

Print More

A Virginia judge has awarded full custody of a two-year-old girl to her mother after the break-up of the mother’s Vermont civil union. The decision by Frederick County Circuit Judge John Prosser is the latest twist in a case that has resulted in conflicting decisions by courts in Vermont and Virginia.

Prosser gave 35-year-old Lisa Miller-Jenkins full custody and ruled that she can decide whether to allow visitation by her former partner, Janet Miller-Jenkins.

The two lived in Vermont for a time where Judge William Cohen found Lisa Miller-Jenkins in contempt of court for failing to follow an order to give Janet Miller Jenkins temporary visitation rights.
