For the 130,000 married same-sex couples in the U.S. today, the Supreme Court's Windsor ruling is monumental, while the holding in Perry, a dismissal, avoided the larger question of whether same-sex marriage state bans can survive constitutional scrutiny under the equal protection clause. While these recent Supreme Court decisions answer many questions for estate planning practitioners, they also raise new considerations for their same-sex and unmarried couple clients.

Join expert faculty in this timely CLE program as they examine the legal and social significance of these groundbreaking Supreme Court decisions, uncover the myriad unique estate planning issues raised for same-sex and unmarried couples, and offer practical guidance on key components of an effective estate plan for such couples.

Topics include:

Windsor: understanding the federal and state implications of invalidating section 3 - but not section 2 - of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, both in recognition states and non-recognition states
Perry: the unanswered questions and the viability of other state bans on same-sex marriage
creative estate planning solutions for same-sex couples and unmarried couples who choose not to marry
variations among state protections that differ from federal standards
asset protections, child-rearing, and end of life considerations
and more!
