Brooke B. v. Donald Ray C., II

Case Number:
Case Issue:

Petitioner, who alleges that she is the psychological parent of respondent's nine-year-old daughter, appeals the June 29, 2011, order of the Kanawha County Circuit Court that granted respondent's petition for a writ of prohibition. The writ precluded the Kanawha County Family Court from hearing petitioner's petition (1) to intervene in respondent's child's paternity/custody case on the ground that she was the child's "psychological parent" and this was an extraordinary case, and (2) to be named the child's infant guardian.
