The issues faced by LGBT couples considering estate planning are unique, complex and require the experience of a specialist who is constantly abreast of changes in the law. Over just the past few years, the estate planning landscape for gay and lesbian clients has changed dramatically. These rapid changes are only accelerating. LGBT clients who drafted their estate plans before 2015 will now want to revisit them to make sure they are optimal for the current environment.
Probate, conservatorship, income taxes, retirement planning, insurance and Social Security benefits are just a few of the areas that same-sex couples should now revisit and consider in light of recent changes. Consulting with an experienced attorney in our Los Angeles or Palm Springs offices is essential.
