Same-Sex Couples Lawyer in Texas
LGBT Legal Representation in the Greater Houston Area
After the groundbreaking June 26th, 2015 ruling by the United States Supreme Court, same-sex marriage is now legalized in all states. Seen as one of the greatest victories for LGBT rights activists, this decision affects more than just marriage for same-sex couples, as it also opens the door for various other family law matters.
However, as more laws become available to same-sex couples, it is entirely likely that more legal concerns and litigation may also arise. The right choice is to seek professional counsel as soon as you encounter complexities with your newfound rights or feel that someone is infringing upon them.

With the Right to Marry Comes the Right to Divorce

This even includes the right to dissolve their marriage through divorce or legal separation. Whether the decision to end your same-sex marriage was contested, uncontested, or collaborative, Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law can help you sort through the specifics of your case.
