Same Sex Marriage Ruling and Veteran’s Administration (VA) Home Loans
On June 26, 2015, the United State Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution requires a State to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-State. Veterans First Mortgage Centers will update its Domestic Partnership and Civil Union Requirements Policy, including renaming it to the Same-Sex Marriage, Domestic Partnership and Civil Union Requirements Policy, to better reflect this mandate. Veterans First Mortgage Centers will apply the same underwriting guidelines, standards and verifications to all marriages, regardless of whether they are same-sex or opposite-sex marriages.
