Same-Sex Couples & Family Law
Las Vegas Family Attorneys
Same-sex marriage is legal in the state of Nevada. The Supreme Court held
in Obergefell v. Hodges that states must (1) issue marriage licenses to
same-sex couples and (2) recognize lawful out-of-state marriages between
same-sex couples. In 2014. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down
Nevada’s ban on same-sex marriage as unconstitutional, thus allowing
same-sex marriage certificates to be issued. Now, same-sex couples can
enjoy the rights, responsibilities, and benefits of opposite-sex couples
who obtain a marriage license.
