When it comes to divorce, what happens to the custody of your child if you were in a same-sex relationship? Neal Ashmore has a firm understanding of the laws in Texas regarding same-sex couples and custody. These laws are always in flux, however, making it critical that the lawyer you choose stays up to date on the most recent changes. Every slight change in the law could greatly impact your future and the future of your children.
Determining the exact parental rights over children can be a complex battle when it comes to individuals in a same-sex relationship. Handling issues like this is not the same as handling a custody issue for a heterosexual couple. It is critical that your lawyer have experience specifically assisting same-sex couples with children.
You can rely on our legal knowledge and dedication to our clients to ensure that your rights are fully protected and your children’s best interests are taken care of.
Oftentimes, the best way to go about resolving a same-sex custody battle is to enter what is called “mediation.” This process allows a third-party neutral to help both sides come to an agreement without the need of going to costly litigation. It also allows you and the other parent to craft a custody agreement yourselves, and not have to rely on a judge to create one for you.
