Same-Sex Family Law Attorneys in Houston

Proud to Represent LGBT Families

In June of 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is constitutional, making it legal across the United States. Today, same-sex couples enjoy the same marital benefits as heterosexual couples – which means they also face the same family law matters.

At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we are proud to support the LGBT community with their legal matters pertaining to family law. We extend all our services to both heterosexual and homosexual couples, treating all our clients with the respect and dignity they deserve.

Our Services for LGBT Families

Families come in many forms – and all families deserve attentive, personalized legal representation. At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we keep our LGBT clients’ unique needs in mind as we help them resolve family matters.

Our same-sex family law attorneys in Houston can assist you with matters involving:

Whether we can resolve disputes through mediation or have to represent you in family law court, our team is prepared to assist you from start to finish.

Unique Concerns of Same-Sex Couples

Because same-sex marriage has only been legal nationally for a relatively short period of time, same-sex couples may still experience some bumps in the road as they attempt to resolve family matters or file for divorce. There are unique considerations that our family lawyers must take into account when representing an LGBT-identifying individual.

For example, if you were ceremonially and legally married in a different state before moving to Texas, you may have signed both a prenuptial agreement and a Texas cohabitation agreement. Your prenuptial agreement would trump your cohabitation agreement.

As another example, a couple married legally outside of Texas that breaks up without legally divorcing is still accruing community property – both assets and debts. Because you never finalized your divorce, any property you have obtained since splitting up is still considered community property, not separate property.

These are just a few of the unique situations that our LGBT clients find themselves in. Rest assured, we have the skill and experience to properly assess your case and determine the right way to move forward and find a favorable solution.

Give us a call at (281) 476-9447 to discuss your case with our LGBT family lawyers in Houston.
