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.
