Four NGOs in the USA - Transgender Law Center, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, and the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund - submitted a third party intervention in support of the referral of Hämäläinen v Finland to the Grand Chamber.
The intervention contains a comprehensive analysis of USA federal and state law regarding marriage between two parties where one person reassigns their sex.
The intervenors conclude:
"to our knowledge, no federal, state, or local law in the United States
mandates the dissolution of a valid marriage merely because one spouse pursues or obtains
gender reassignment during marriage. In fact, to the contrary, United States courts continue
to recognize a marriage that is valid when celebrated as continuing to be valid after one spouse undergoes a legal gender transition".
