New York Wills And Trusts For LGBT Couples
Husbands and wives are protected under New York State’s inheritance laws if one of them becomes incapacitated or is deceased. Same-sex couples are not. If domestic partners fail to create an estate plan, and one partner loses capacity, the other partner will not have the automatic right to make medical and financial decisions on behalf of the incapacitated person. In the event that one partner dies intestate, the other will receive nothing under the New York State probate laws.
Contact Khan & Yau, PC to learn more about protecting your loved ones through LGBT estate planning.
