LGBT Marriage And Divorce Law in Texas

In 2015 the United States Supreme Court issued the monumental decision that made same-sex marriages legal in every state. The granting of this fundamental right also provided the right to seek a separation or divorce, apply for custody of minor children, divide community property, and more.

Same-Sex Couple Adoption in Texas

LGBT couples and individuals in Texas have different options when they want to become parents via adoption. They are:

  • Second parent adoptions, which is when one partner applies to adopt the other parent’s biological or adopted children
  • Joint adoptions, where the couple adopts a child together
  • Single parent adoptions that allow individuals to adopt on their own

Although same-sex relationships are recognized as legal throughout Texas, some family law situations may still raise legal questions. Attorney Crista Marichalar Branch will enforce your rights as a partner, spouse, or parent during settlement negotiations, mediation, and even litigation.
