Sullivan, Klocke, Evans & Goenawein are skilled LGBTQ+ Family Law Attorneys in North Texas
LGBTQ+ Family Law in North Texas
Since 2015 when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that state bans on same-sex marriage were unconstitutional, same-sex couples in Texas and throughout the nation have been able to marry and enjoy the same constitutionally protected benefits of marriage afforded to opposite-sex couples. However, same-sex individuals and families in Texas still face unique challenges when dealing with family law issues. It is important to have an attorney who is familiar with the still evolving laws affecting LGBTQ+ individuals, parents, and families and who is experienced in handling the unique issues that can arise in a family law dispute.
