MONTREAL — A Quebec judge is inviting provincial lawmakers to consider the possibility of multi-parent families after a complex legal fight involving a little girl and three adults.
The three-year-old’s biological father asked to have his name put on the child’s birth certificate to replace that of a woman who was considered the toddler’s second mother but who is currently transitioning to a male.
He also asked the judge to change the child’s last name to his own.
In Quebec, the law recognizes only two parents for a child, and only their names are recorded on the birth certificate.
