T v B [2010] EWHC 1444 (Fam) (16 June 2010)

Lesbian couple had a child together by way of artificial insemination. A shared residence order was made, under which the ex-partner acquired parental responsibility. The mother applied for financial relief from the ex-partner. Held that the lesbian ex-partner was not a parent in the legal sense and therefore an order could not be made under Schedule 1 Children Act 1989.
