When you’re in a GLBT relationship and want to end it, you face the same types of issues as heterosexual spouses who consider divorce. How will you divide your property? If you have children, how will you deal with custody issues? Staying out of court and resolving your disagreements through mediation, collaborative law or a negotiated settlement is certainly to your advantage. The reason is that Texas law doesn’t recognize same sex marriage, and how courts will rule is less predictable. However, contract law applies to agreements you’ve made and you may be able to resolve some matters through litigation based on contract law.
