Decatur Same-Sex Marriage Attorney: (404) 471-3874
On June 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in
Obergefell v. Hodges that same-sex marriage was legal in the U.S. This decision is a watershed
moment in the struggle for gay rights and marriage equality. Prior to
this ruling, Georgia did not recognize same-sex marriages at the state
level. Now, same-sex couples all across the state and the U.S. have the
same rights as couples of the opposite sex. If you would like to learn
more about same-sex marriage, feel free to contact
Same-sex couples can now enjoy the same legal rights as opposite-sex couples,
- Filing joint tax returns
- Adopting children
