Though all individuals and families can benefit from estate planning, it is especially important when LGBTQ couples are involved. Historical laws, and even current laws in some locations, were drafted with heterosexual married couples in mind. Applying these laws to LGBTQ couples can leave a partner without crucial rights when it comes to inheriting an estate or managing their partner’s affairs in the case of incapacity.
Thoughtful estate planning by an experienced professional can provide protection for those you care about. At Pierro, Connor & Strauss, our estate planning team stays informed of changes to the laws so that we can skillfully implement the tools that achieve your estate planning goals. We understand the challenges that LGBTQ individuals and families face and we work with you to meet those challenges head-on.
