We Stand Alongside Same-Sex Couples In Texas
Same-sex couples in the San Antonio area face unique challenges in a divorce. Many clients who are in a same-sex relationship worry that the legal system will not treat them fairly. It is crucial to have an attorney who thoroughly understands the details of Texas law regarding same-sex divorce and other gay and lesbian family issues.
At the Ruiz & Associates, PLLC, our experienced legal George Ruiz and his support team is prepared to stand up and provide you with strong legal advocacy. We will work to protect your rights in your divorce proceedings or other legal matter.
What Should I Know About LGBT Divorce in Texas?
Per federal law, Texas now recognizes same-sex marriage and, consequently, same-sex divorce. This means that same-sex couples receive the same rights as heterosexual couples when it comes to property division, spousal support and alimony. However, it is still in your best interests to work with an attorney who can help uphold your civil rights.
If you and your partner had a common law marriage, you may have difficulty establishing this to the state. A lawyer can help you demonstrate your common law relationship and receive the property division settlement and spousal maintenance that you need.
