Are Probate Judges In Alabama Preventing You From Marrying?

Though marriage equality is the law of the land, there are several counties in Alabama that are still trying to resist the Supreme Court's decision. Rather than issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, probate judges in 8 Alabama counties are refusing to issue marriage licenses to anyone.

The federal courts in Kentucky shut down Kim Davis's attempt to block the right to marry, and we hope to achieve a similar result in Alabama. Last spring, our lawyers won an order requiring all Alabama probate judges to stop discriminating against same-sex couples who want to get married. Now, we need to make clear that Alabama probate judges can't evade this order by depriving all of their residents of the right to marry.
