At Pelletier Marshall & Clark, our attorneys offer experienced and prudent counsel when it comes to estate planning for same sex couples. Like so many other areas, our gay clients struggle with additional legal issues that don’t typically affect heterosexual couples and traditional families.
Our community-focused attorneys have a strong understanding of the conflicts that arise when gay and lesbian clients are planning for the future. We will work closely with you to learn about your circumstances and help you make purposeful estate planning decisions that will protect you, your loved ones and your property when state and federal laws fall short.
Our estate planning for same sex couples includes:
- Appointing your spouse or partner as your health care power of attorney
- Creating a trust that names your loved ones as beneficiaries
- Navigating IRS regulations when gifting assets to those you care about
