Houston LGBT Family Lawyers

Proudly Advocating for the Rights of LGBT Residents in Houston

While the country has made long strides to provide the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community with fundamental civil rights, the legal landscape at the intersection of family law and LGBT rights remains complex. Even though the Supreme Court officially recognized that laws prohibiting same-sex marriage are unconstitutional in 2015, many family law provisions that assumed the heterosexual status of a married are still playing catch-up when it comes to issues such as parental rights, adoptions, and child custody cases involving LGBT persons.

If you are looking for an experienced legal advocate to represent you and your family’s rights, you should consult an experienced Houston LGBT family lawyer for legal representation. At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we proudly represent members of the LGBT community in Houston in a variety of family law issues to help ensure their rights are given the proper respect and recognition for which the community has fought long and hard to obtain.

Call Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law at (281) 476-9447 to learn more about how our experienced legal team can assist you.

Legal Services We Provide

Up until a few years ago, Texas law did not recognize same-sex marriage. As a result, much of Texas Family Code was written under the assumption that a married couple involved a man and a woman. Thus, in order to make the Family Code for LGBT residents of Houston, some creative and sophisticated advocating is required.

At Slate & Associates Attorneys at Law, we can help you navigate the legal issues arising from the following situations:

  • Marital rights and licensing
  • Assisted reproduction agreements
  • Gestational surrogacy agreements
  • Parental rights
  • Adoptions
  • Divorce
  • Child custody
  • Spousal support
