A flurry of legislative enactment, executive action, court matters, and grassroots mobilization has occurred in the two years since the U.S Supreme Court in Obergefell ruled that same-sex couples have the constitutional right to marry. What is the present state of same sex relationships in the States? What challenges exist? What legislation and case law has come — and is now pending? And how did the Obergefell decision affect other issues in family law? These and other issues will be addressed in this fast-paced presentation.

1.       Marriage and LGBT Community post Obergefell (is our legal right to marry safe?)

2.       LGBT Dissolution and Parental Rights (equitable parent and related legal challenges)
3.       Transgender legal issues related to marriage and non-marital relationships (I am handling my third divorce with a transitioning spouse in what started as a heterosexual marriage.  Other transgender issues involve children of divorcing parents who identify as transgender.
4.      Statistics on marriage and dissolution rate in the LGBT Community post Windsor and Obergefell.
