Same-Sex Divorce in Texas
The process for divorce in Texas remains largely the same whether the case involves a same-sex couple or a heterosexual couple. One spouse must simply state there has been a breakdown of the marital relationship, and that there is no chance of reconciliation. The couple’s marital assets will be divided, and an alimony order may be issued to one spouse.
Unique Issues in Same-Sex Divorces
Although the legal process is largely similar for same-sex divorces as it is in cases involving a heterosexual couple, there are still unique issues involved. These include:
- The length of marriage: Typically, in divorce cases, the length of the marriage plays an important role in certain proceedings. For example, a judge will consider the length of the marriage when making decisions on alimony matters. However, same-sex marriage has only been legal in Texas since June of 2015. Before this time, many same-sex couples cohabitated without making their relationship official. As such, the length of the marriage is not always considered in same-sex divorce cases.
- Child custody issues: Disputes surrounding child custody issues are some of the most complex in any divorce, but this is particularly true when the case involves a same-sex couple. It is common in same sex relationships for only one spouse to be the adopted or biological parent of the children involved in the marriage. This can quickly complicate child custody issues and make it much more difficult for the parent who does not have a legal relationship with the child[ren] to guarantee periods of possession, let alone maintain a fighting chance in a contested dispute regarding conservatorship (rights and duties)
These complex issues are difficult to work through. In League City, Rob Musemeche is an experienced, committed, and supportive family law attorney who can help you navigate them to a successful conclusion.
