Houston LGBTQ+ Family Lawyers

Houston lawyersOn June 25, 2015, the US Supreme Court made same-sex marriages legal in all 50 states with their ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges. In addition to granting the LGBTQ community greater constitutional rights, it also gave rise to a host of family law issues, including those relating to divorce, parental rights, and child custody of same-sex parents.

Additionally, the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2017 ruling in Pavan v, Smith states that we are to give effect to the ancillary benefits of a same-sex marriage, including the determination of maternity for the non-gestational spouse of a child born to the marriage.
