Posts tagged "Same-Sex Couples & Divorce"

Child custody and same-sex divorce

Divorce can be tricky for any couple, but there are some particularly difficult legal matters that same-sex couples often have to work through. As with opposite-sex couples, same-sex couples may struggle with spousal support, the interpretation of a prenuptial agreement, and other divorce-related legal matters. However, some are particularly prevalent among same-sex couples and can be highly emotional. For example, disputes and uncertainty related to the custody of children can be very worrisome for same-sex couples who have adopted a child or have a child that was conceived via a sperm donation. For same-sex couples thinking about divorce in Houston, reviewing the laws in Texas is paramount.

Understanding that every child support case is unique

Legal issues that involve children can be particularly challenging for parents to work through. However, it is essential to make sure that children are provided with the care they need and make every effort to pursue a healthy outcome. Child support can be especially difficult for certain families, from the perspectives of custodial and non-custodial parents alike. If you are facing any child support matter, or expect that child support will be a contentious issue during your divorce, it is vital to recognize that every case is different.

Working through a same-sex divorce

In recent years, many same-sex couples were excited to find out that they could finally tie the knot. As with all relationships, however, there may come a time when things are no longer working out. If you live in Houston or another Texas city and have found yourself in this position, it is vital to know your rights and work through your divorce appropriately.

Special concerns for same-sex couples divorcing

When same sex marriage became legal, it was a huge win for same sex couples, but it also presented new challenges in states, such as Texas, where it was not legal before the Supreme Court ruling. It is especially challenging when couples decide to divorce.
