Same-Sex Divorce Lawyers in San Antonio, TX

Same-sex couples who were married in Texas, or married in another state that allows same-sex marriage and who are now Texas residents may seek a divorce. The same marital laws that apply to heterosexual couples for divorce now apply to same-sex couples. That means assets and debts accrued from the date of marriage are subject to division, prenuptial agreements will be upheld, and custody and support agreements will need to be negotiated. Even though same-sex couples have the same rights as heterosexual couples- they will also have the same complexities. Seek the counsel and expertise of a LGBTQ family lawyer in San Antonio, TX from the firm of Allen & Roig, LLP. We have vast experience in this area of law and can guide you through the process with confidence and compassion.

Overview of Texas Divorce Laws

Texas is a no-fault state, meaning that you don’t need to have grounds. A spouse does not have to prove the other spouse did anything wrong in order to get divorced. One of the spouses must have residency in Texas for the preceding six month period and also be a resident of the county in which the suit is filed for the preceding 90-day period. While some of the requirements may seem straightforward, there are other extenuating circumstances that may come into play such as the legal aspects of the establishment of common law marriage for same-sex couples, and how that would affect a same-sex lawsuit for divorce.
