Legal Services We Offer to the LGBTQ Community in Dallas
LGBTQ Family Law Legal Assistance
Even though there is no question now about the legality of same-sex marriage in Texas, the processes of family law disputes do regularly raise legal questions that may be difficult to resolve until the Texas Civil Code is rewritten and clarified. Gay and lesbian couples in Dallas going through a divorce may end up in court debating child custody, child support, property division, spousal maintenance, entitlement to retirement accounts and the list goes on. The challenge lies in determining which laws apply to same-sex marriage. In theory, with the legalization of same-sex marriage, all of the same laws that govern opposite-sex family law matters should apply but that concept is still being tested in court to this day. If you need help with your same-sex marriage or LGBT family law matter it is crucial that you work with an attorney that stays up to date with this complex and constantly evolving area of law.
Discuss Your Case with an Experienced LGBTQ Family Law Attorney
When you are looking for a gay friendly family law attorney it is important to choose one that can empathize with your situation.

McCall Jr. begin practicing family law over 20 years ago in Dallas with a focus on serving the gay and lesbian community. Because of his service to this community he was featured in The Wall Street Journal as early as 2008 in an article discussing gay marriage and divorce. As a member of the Dallas LGBT Bar Association he has a long history of fighting and winning hard battles in the courtroom for his clients. He has been in the trenches advocating for equal treatment under the law and has represented several clients who’s sexuality was used against them by an ex spouse and through these cases has been a pioneer in shifting the narrative in Texas to one where “judges evaluate gay parents on how they care for their children, instead of basing decisions on their sexuality.” -Dallas Voice, 2013
