Non-Traditional Families

Unmarried couples, whether:
  • Young, Middle Aged, or Senior

  • With or Without Children

  • Same-sex or Opposite sex

present different planning and structuring challenges as well as advantages in the areas of estate planning and asset protection. Each one of their documents needs to be structured differently and carefully to meet the couples goals and to avoid any (1) unwanted tax consequences or (2) interference from disagreeing relatives or governmental authorities.
