About the Book

Estate planning is more than post-death planning. It is also life planning. Drafting well-considered legal documents for clients gives them peace of mind. The myriad legal issues facing LGBT individuals and couples remain volatile. LGBT clients are the only ones whose legal status and legal rights are dependent on where they live, visit, or travel. Additionally, there are challenges facing the community, including basic rights concerning their children or property.

With so many legal issues to consider, lawyers must look past appearances to be sure they have all of the information needed to help these clients. The Second Edition to the Benjamin Franklin Award recipient, Estate Planning for Same-Sex Couples, serves as a vital reference to provide services to this client base. Lawyers can use this book as a complete resource tool to handle LGBT legal issues and the array of variables among the states. Chapters include information on wills and trusts, children, estate planning, and dealing with senior LGBT clients. A companion CD holds forms and documents to aid in the estate planning process.
