Same-Sex Marriage Lawyers in Austin
Dedicated to Your Future & Goals
In all 50 states of the United States of America, couples of the same sex are legally allowed to get married. This means that with the right to get married, they also possess the same rights as straight couples to divorce and dissolve the union. Same-sex couples also now possess the exact same duties and privileges in regard to obtaining custody for their children, support, and visitation. These couples are also entitled to have fair spousal support and alimony rights, as well as a just division between their items of property.
If you are currently in the process of ending your marriage, or your marriage has just been legally dissolved, you will need a dedicated, knowledgeable same-sex marriage attorney in Austin. Allow our dependable team at Carroll Troberman, PLLC to ensure that your rights are protected no matter what.
The Grounds of Divorce in Texas
When it comes to the grounds of divorce in the state of Texas, the law is exactly the same for both straight and same-sex couples. In order to get a divorce, you do not have to prove that any specific situation has occurred. So long as one partner truly believes that the relationship is unsalvageable, then the court agrees that this divorce can legally take place.
In certain situations, there are other “grounds” for divorce which count as being the fault of the other spouse. These grounds include:
- Cases of adultery
- Utter abandonment for at least a full year
- Cruelty and abuse
- Being convicted of a felony
- Being committed to a mental hospital or institute
