New Phone Seminar Option! This seminar is offered in 2 format choices: webcast (video & audio) OR telephone seminar (audio only). We recommend the phone seminar option if you have difficulty accessing streaming videos online. Choose your format when you register (you cannot switch formats after you register). With either format, registrants have the option to go online about a week after the seminar to watch the recorded video stream, download MP3 audio files, or access the written materials if provided by speakers.


This two-hour webcast is intended to inform the family law practitioner about recent developments in same-sex family law cases. Dallas and Austin have both recently litigated gay divorces; the 5th and 9th Courts of Appeal have recently issued opinions addressing standing for same-sex parents.

  • WHO is most affected by same-sex family law cases?
  • WHAT can practitioners do with cutting-edge lawyering?
  • WHERE will standing end up, with the split of opinions among appellate courts?
  • WHEN is a parent not a parent?
  • WHY can’t couples legally married in other jurisdictions get divorced in Texas?

    Advising same-sex couples can have long-term ramifications for the best interests of children, and need to anticipate upcoming changes in the law, both locally and nationally. Join us to see the latest developments from the attorneys on the front lines.
