Family Law Attorney Protecting The Rights Of LGBT Couples
As we mentioned earlier in this website, the United States Supreme Court held in Obergefell v. Hodges that “[T]he Fourteenth Amendment requires a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-state.”
This holding ensures protection for all marriages. This provides LGBT couples protections under the U.S. Constitution. It is now up to our legal system to accommodate same-sex couples in the same manner that it accommodates all married couples.
Whether concerning Georgia or any other state in the union, this includes equal protection of the law when it comes to the protection of your children and family.
