    I would imagine that it would go as it would in any divorce: the judge would decide which parent is better suited for the child, or there would be split custody.

    I wonder who gets the house, since they can both be the wife.

    I would guess so, however there may be additional mitigating circumstances with say a lesbian couple with two children, where only one of the women has a biological claim, and the other has a higher paying job. Since both can claim they are the children's mother... I'm sure the lawyers will quickly figure out if there is a change in tactics.

    I've answered in the up thread but, some states haven't allowed name changes to signatures, DLs, wills, taxes, property etc. All this will come into play during a divorce.

    Is there precedent for any of this? Same sex marriage just came to the remaining thirteen holdouts, otherwise there has been ssm since 2004.

    No idea if there's precedent or not. Even if there is it would be relatively small I'd think given the timeframes. Now that it will go national, that may change.
