Your divorce may face unique challenges related to overt and covert biases. Our lawyers will be by your side to help you navigate any issues that may come up during your divorce.

What Are Your Parental Rights?

Many same-sex couples with children face a lot of scrutiny in court.

In Texas, same-sex parents have the same child custody rights as heterosexual parents. Child custody issues in every divorce involve the allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time. Parents are encouraged to agree on decision-making authority and parenting time, but if they cannot, the court will decide based on the child’s best interests.

To establish parental rights, non-biological parents may need to pursue an adoption of the child. Legal complexities may arise for children born via surrogacy or in vitro fertilization. Establishing parentage for same-sex couples can involve joint adoption or legal presumptions based on marriage.

Our lawyers want to see all parents retain their parental rights after a divorce. We provide our clients legal support as they fight for their parental rights for their children.
