Same Sex Estate Planning

Protect Both Partners When Laws Are Vague and Evolving

Same sex estate planning in Oregon is becoming simplified because Oregon recognizes gay marriage. However, not all states recognize gay marriage and this area of law is in transition. It is particularly important for proper estate planning if a gay married individual travels outside of Oregon and into a state that does not recognize gay marriage. Proper planning is particularly important if there are minor children involved or if the family dynamics contain more drama.
