Under New Hampshire law, "a man is presumed to be the father of a child if: ... While the child is under the age of majority, he receives the child into his home and openly holds out the child as his child."

The high court's unanimous ruling last week extends the same parental presumption to same-sex parents, including a parent with no biological tie to the child, and who was never legally married to her partner.
