Estate Planning for Same-Sex Couples

In 2015, the Supreme Court declared that same-sex marriages were legal in every state. Same-sex couples that marry, now have the same rights as opposite-sex couples when it comes to inheriting property from their spouse and making medical decisions for their spouse.

While considered equal, same-sex married couples should consider estate planning in the same manner and their concerns are the same as anyone’s. Everyone should have a will, a living will, a durable power of attorney as well as a financial power of attorney. These legal documents ensure that your wishes are known and your partner is protected.

Fortunately, our site allows you to prepare wills reflecting any scenario because our drop down menus allow you to choose whether your spouse is your wife or husband.
