Our Same-Sex Family Law Practice
On June 26, 2015, Supreme Court of the United States, in the case of Obergefell vs. Hodges, held that “the fundamental right to marry” is now guaranteed to same-sex couples under federal law by both the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment. While same-sex couples can now access numerous state benefits, from automatic inheritance rights to homestead protections, that were previously granted only to opposite-sex couples, fundamental questions about the marital relationship remain to be determined. Many unresolved issues remain. For example, how will Texas common law marriage laws apply to same-sex couples? We can help with your specific situation.
