Estate Planning for Non-Traditional Marriages and Relationships

presented by

Amanda M. Strausbaugh, Esq.

A discussion on estate planning that will focus on the special considerations with LGBTQIA+ relationships, as well as the estate planning considerations when dealing with married and unmarried couples, including financial accounts, probate, and children. Up until 2015, same-sex couples could not marry in the United States, and therefore needed to come up with alternative methods to accomplish their goals when it came to estate planning. The first part of the program will discuss the methods used to take care of a partner prior to being married, and how those same methods still work for couples who cannot or will not get married for whatever reason. We will then discuss marriage more broadly and how marriage affects your options relating to estate planning, and how marriage can benefit the surviving spouse after the death of the first spouse, particularly in the circumstance of an insolvent estate. Finally, we will touch on possible issues that may warrant reaching out to an attorney, such as in vitro fertilization, surrogacy, adoption, and the obstacles same-sex couples may face that cis heterosexual couples may not.
