The Supreme Court Same-Sex Marriage Ruling
Dedicated Johnson County Divorce Attorney
On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court ruled on four cases collectively known as "Obergefell." In their split 5-4 decision, the justices declared that our Constitution
guarantees the right of marriage to all Americans, including same-sex
couples. The ruling was cause for celebration among LGBT communities nationwide
and was immediately hailed as a major civil rights victory for our country.
What does the ruling mean for Texas?
While Texas had overturned its ban on same-sex marriage, it had not yet
reached a marriage equality ruling. This means that the family law landscape
has radically changed for our LGBT community. In the eyes of the law,
same-sex marriage is now the same as opposite-sex marriage and countless
Texans can now embrace all the joys, benefits, and challenges that marriage
provides when they previously could not.
This also means that family law matters have become extremely relevant
to same-sex couples. They may find themselves facing complications that
require legal assistance:
