Before getting married, Michelle (plaintiff) and Brittany Conover (defendant) used artificial insemination to conceive and had a son, Jaxon. The couple married when Jaxon was six months old but separated a year later. Michelle continued visiting Jaxon until Brittany objected. After Brittany filed for divorce, Michelle sought visitation. Although Maryland law presumes a child born during marriage to be the child of both spouses, the trial court ruled that Michelle lacked standing to request visitation because Jaxon was born before marriage. The appellate court affirmed. Michelle appealed, arguing that the court should recognize de facto parent standing.
