LGBT Family Law

The landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision of Obergefell v. Hodges that extended the right to marry to same-sex couples in 2015 was not the end of the discussion for LGBT issues. The Texas Supreme Court has since been confronted with one case that tried to restrict benefits to only opposite sex couples. More of these challenges are bound to arise.

At Apffel Law Firm, we stay up to date on the evolving laws affecting LGBT marriage, divorces and other family law issues in Texas. We have more than 35 years of experience advocating for and counseling clients from Galveston to Houston on family law matters. As an established and revered family law attorney in League City, LGBT couples and individuals seek our services for legal counsel and representation that they can rely on.

Planning Ahead For Potential Changes In The Law

Family law for same-sex and LGBT couples can change quickly as activists, lobby groups and legal plaintiffs continue to challenge the legitimacy of the laws and groups on the opposing side work to enforce the laws.

Are you and a partner finally planning a wedding or considering having a child? You may want to meet with an attorney to discuss your current rights and how they could possibly change. In addition, if you have made an agreement or plan in the past, you may want to have it reviewed.

Maintaining contact with your lawyer or seeking counsel from a lawyer who has been a leader in Texas family law resolutions for decades is wise in any situation.
