The mother and father in Fisher v. Szczyglowski, who are both Navy employees, had a son together in January 2014, after they had been dating for 2 years. The mother works at the Philadelphia naval base and lives in New Jersey, and the father lives and works in Maryland. Because of the Navy’s maternity and paternity leave benefits, the mother and father were able to live together with their son for about 5 months following his birth. From January until March 2014, they lived at the mother’s home in New Jersey. When the father’s paternity leave ended in March, they lived in the father’s Maryland residence during the week, and at the mother’s home on weekends.
