The cornerstone of Gamez Law Firm is family law. Our experienced, dedicated and highly knowledgeable lawyers can answer your questions and fight for your rights and interests in a wide range of family law issues, including:
  • Divorce (dissolution of marriage)

  • Fathers’ rights
  • Grandparents’ rights to visitation or custody
  • Divorce modifications when circumstances change
  • Paternity and parental rights and responsibilities
  • Adoptions


Divorce, also known as dissolution of marriage, is the legal proceeding involving the final termination of a marriage, canceling the legal duties and responsibilities of marriage and dissolving the bonds of matrimony between two persons. The divorce process can be legally complex and emotionally difficult, particularly when children or significant assets are involved.
We have one purpose in mind: providing men and women with compassionate and relentless advocacy from beginning to end in cases involving divorce. Whether defeating opponents in the courtroom or creating new law at the appellate level, we are committed to providing our clients with superior results.

Texas Is a No-Fault Divorce State

A husband or wife in Texas can obtain a divorce without having to prove that one party caused the breakup of the marriage. However, a divorce can also be granted declaring one party at fault in the breakup of the marriage. Grounds for fault include adultery, cruel treatment and abandonment. A finding of fault can have a disproportionate effect.

The “Cooling-Off Period”

Even if both parties are on board with wanting a divorce, it cannot happen overnight. In Texas, parties must wait at least 60 days between filing their divorce suit and finalizing the divorce. However, if one party has been convicted of a criminal offense constituting domestic violence or where an active protective order remains, this cooling-off period can be waived.


Adoption should be a happy occasion for parents and children who thereby form new “forever” families. However, it is also a formal procedure that must be handled properly to ensure a solid and irreversible legal relationship. Termination of the parental rights of any living biological parents is an extremely important part of the process. Contact our office of experienced San Antonio family lawyers to discuss the steps involved in any adoption, including step-parent adoption or adoption by grandparents or any other family member(s).
If you are researching adoption, chances are you’re making life-changing decisions that may have brought up many questions for you and your family.
