Is LGBT Divorce Different?

If I am a member of the LGBT community, is the divorce process different for me?

No, divorce is not different for LGBT couples. 

All marriages are treated in the same way in Texas. Whether you are heterosexual, homosexual, or any of the LGBT community, a divorce or custody action follows the same process for you as it would for any heterosexual couple. Love is love and divorce is divorce under the law in Texas.
