LGBTQ+ Family Law Attorneys in Houston

We Provide Legal Counsel to People of All Gender Identities

Family law for same-sex couples changed dramatically in 2015 due to the ground-breaking U.S. Supreme Court case calling for the legalization of same-sex marriages in all states, including Texas, which formerly decreed that “marriage is between a man and a woman.” No more!

Despite the fact that the law changed only recently, our family law attorneys already had experience in meeting the legal needs of the LGBTQ+ community in family law matters through mechanisms such as domestic partner agreements. Same sex couples were adopting and having families long before marriage equality was decreed, and our firm also already had experience in child custody cases for same-sex couples.

Same sex couples with children naturally faced the same issues when they separated as any divorcing couple with children: Custody, visitation, and child support. The attorneys at Diggs & Sadler have always compassionately counseled LGBTQ+ clients to address their family law needs. Now, thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court and marriage equality, we can also handle your divorce, just as we can for anyone else.
