How does the Supreme Court decision affect Tennessee?
Tennessee was one of 13 states where same-sex marriage was not legal prior to the Supreme Court decision. Now that the court has made its ruling, same-sex marriage is legally equivalent to opposite-sex marriage—meaning that same-sex couples can potentially face all the same legal challenges that are associated with marriage.
Jeff Grimes & Associates, PLLC is prepared to help same-sex couples with:
- Asset division
- Child custody
- Child support
- Domestic violence
- Visitation rights
Additionally, our firm can also help same-sex couples who have recently moved to Tennessee navigate their new federal marriage benefits, like Social Security and military/veteran benefits. No matter what your family law matter might entail, Attorney Grimes is ready to provide tailored legal solutions that speak to your concerns and protect your interests through every step of the process.
