Same Sex Couples


Gay Marriage Laws in Nevada

On Oct. 9, 2014, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals officially declared that couples across the state of Nevada can marry whomever they choose. Although the Coalition for the Protection of Marriage continued its fight to keep gay marriage illegal in Nevada, they withdrew their petition, allowing Nevada to issue its first same-sex marriage licenses that day.

Gay Marriage Annulment

Newly revised Nevada laws allow same-sex couples married in Nevada to file for an annulment here without having to establish residency. If you were not married anywhere in Nevada, but are currently living here, or you are willing to establish your residency here, then you can also file for an annulment in Nevada. Sometimes you’ll find it easier to file for an annulment in Nevada instead of ending the marriage in your home state, especially if same-sex marriage hasn’t been recognized in that area, or if there is a certain conflict whereby same-sex marriage is legal, but dissolution of same-sex marriage is different from other states.

“In most cases, annuling a same-sex marriage is no different than annuling any other marriage.”

Current Laws
