Texas Family Laws

Welcome to FindLaw's Texas Family Laws section, with links to state resources and regularly updated information about such topics as marriage, divorce, adoption, child support, and child custody. Most family laws are quite similar to those of other states, with a few differences. For example, Texas does not permit same-sex couples to get married and has tight restrictions on abortion (which is legal under federal law). As a practice area, family law also includes child abuse, domestic abuse, stalking, and protective orders (all of which cross over into criminal law as well). Click on a topic below to learn more.
