Same Sex Couples

Same-Sex Couples in Texas

After the groundbreaking June 26th, 2015 ruling by the United States Supreme Court, same-sex marriage is now legalized in all states. Seen as one of the greatest victories for LGBT rights activists, this decision affects more than just marriage for same-sex couples, as it also opens the door for various other family law matters.

However, as more laws become available to same-sex couples, it is entirely likely that more legal concerns and litigation may also arise. The correct choice is to seek professional counsel as soon as you encounter complexities with your newfound rights or feel that someone is infringing upon them.

With the Right to Marry Comes the Right to Divorce

Although courts and lawmakers are still sorting through the specifics of the Supreme Court’s ruling, it is clear that same-sex couples should be granted all the same rights surrounding marriage as other couples. This even includes the right to dissolve their marriage through divorce or legal separation. Whether the decision to end your same-sex marriage was contested, uncontested, or collaborative, Renken Law Firm  can help you navigate through the specifics of your case.
