Pasadena Divorce Attorneys Assist with LGBT Family Law Matters

Overturn of Proposition 8

Over the past few years, the question regarding the validity and recognition of same-sex marriages has come to the forefront of national attention. Even though some states have quickly voted to approve same-sex marriage, California voters have resisted. In May of 2008, the California Supreme Court initially ruled that bans on same-sex marriages were unconstitutional. Less than six months later, however, many Californians voted in support of Proposition 8, which amended the California ban on same-sex marriages.

The validity of same-sex marriages that occurred after May 2008 has been upheld. During the summer of 2013, the Unites States Supreme Court overturned Proposition 8. With this legal action, same-sex marriages are now permitted in California for the time being. As a result, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) legal issues are on the rise. For legal assistance with an LGBT family law matter, our Pasadena divorce attorneys can provide you with the guidance you need.
