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.

Whether you’re looking to pursue a marriage or domestic partnership, it’s important to have a legal advocate on your side who can and will fight for your rights. At Leavitt Law Firm, we have dedicated more than 27 years of legal experience to helping individuals with divorce and family law matters, and we put our same client-focused practice to work protecting the rights of same-sex couples as well. A Las Vegas family lawyer from our firm can help you successfully navigate the legal system to enjoy the benefits of or dissolve your domestic partnership in Las Vegas, Nevada.
