Tucson LGBTQIA+ Estate Planning
Obergefell v. Hodges was a landmark decision that finally guaranteed nationwide marriage equality.
Estate planning is always complicated, and non-traditional sexuality or gender roles can make the process of making an estate plan and securing your legacy even more difficult. Kinghorn Law wants to make the process easy.
The fact that the battle for gay marriage has included estate planning cases shows just how much of an impact your sexuality can have on your estate planning process. While Obergefell v. Hodges has made it easier for homosexual couples to take some of the same estate planning shortcuts as straight couples, the nationwide recognition of gay marriage does not eliminate the complexity of the estate planning process. It also provides no relief to transgender individuals and to LGBTQIA+ individuals who aren’t part of a marital union.
