For Richer or For Poorer: Dodging Pitfalls with Non-Traditional Estate Planning Clients

Learn how to handle the estate planning needs of same-sex and non-married couples with ease.

Recent changes regarding the recognition of same-sex couples, competing state and federal laws, along with the ever changing income, gift and estate planning laws, especially by state for same-sex spouses, make it critical to know how these factors impact lawyers, accountants, financial planners and other advisers who represent them and non-married couples. Not knowing the many pitfalls involved is a trap for the unwary. This OnDemand webinar explores the changing laws and areas of concern in a practical manner for advisers representing same-sex spouses and non-married couples for their estate planning needs.
