Planning for Lesbian,
Gay, Bisexual and
Special planning and consideration should be given if you are LGBT or in a non-traditional relationship, especially if you are not married. You want to anticipate that others may be resistant to permitting your partner to be your decision maker or your beneficiary, and cross all your t’s and dot all your i’s in your estate planning documents. The good news is that since the 2015 U.S. Supreme Court decision of Obergefell v. Hodges, same-sex couples have the right to marry in all 50 states, giving them the same estate planning options as traditional couples.
Vested Partners welcomes the opportunity to work with LGBT clients.
