Estate Planning Solutions For Same-Sex Couples
Although many of the same estate planning tools are used in domestic partnership estate planning, it is often necessary to take an alternative approach to maximize effectiveness of these various tools. Our law firm will help you create a will that will allow you to distribute your assets to your partner or children, appoint your partner as a power of attorney, and create a health care directive that gives your partner the right to make health care decisions on your behalf if you one day become incapacitated.
Domestic partnership laws are ever-evolving, so it may be necessary to update your estate plan from time to time. We can help you through the initial process of creating your estate plan and update it when your life circumstances change or when laws change that affect you.
