Impact of Recent Supreme Court Rulings

 

Indianapolis LGBT Attorney Explains Impact of Recent Supreme Court Rulings

 

In  the  past  few  years,  there  have  been  many  enormous  victories  gained  for gay marriage in the United States. In 2013, the United States Supreme Court ruled  that  DOMA  (the  1996  Defense  of  Marriage  Act)  Section  3,  which claimed  that  the  institution  of  marriage  was  only  between  a  man  and  a woman for the ultimate purpose of granting married couples federal benefits, was unconstitutional, and that it violated the Constitution’s promise of equal rights.  In  2015,  the  same  Court  ruled  that  the  fundamental  right  to  marry extends  to  same-sex  couples.  This  means  that  both  the  Federal  Government and  all  State  Governments  in  the  United  States  must  recognize  same-sex marriages.  If  you  are  interested  in  knowing  more  about  how  the  recent rulings  affect  you  and  your  LGBT  partnership,  contact  Indiana  LGBT attorney Barbara J. Baird for a thorough understanding of what has changed,and what hasn’t.
