Laws affecting LGBT couples are changing rapidly, and while it’s an exciting time for all gay and lesbian partners, keeping up with the myriad ways the shifting legal landscape touches your family life can be daunting. Now more than ever, it’s important that you take the proper legal steps to define and protect your relationship in the eyes of the law. If you don’t, you run the risk of being shut out of each other’s lives — and the lives of children you co-parent — in times of medical, financial or person
al crisis.

Fortunately, this practical guide is updated with the latest legal information and legislation that will help you and your same-sex partner protect and exercise your rights, and make sound decisions as a couple.

A Legal Guide for Lesbian & Gay Couples covers:
making practical decisions about living together
planning for medical emergencies — making medical decisions for one another and taking care of each other’s finances when one partner is incapacitated
domestic partner benefits and how to obtain them
buying property together
providing for each other upon death
practical and legal aspects of having and raising children
marriage laws for all 50 states
The updated edition provides the latest information on same-sex marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships. This book teaches couples how to protect their relationships by entering into “living together” agreements, making wills and medical directives, jointly buying a house or other property, and making other practical decisions about living together, marrying, or registering as legal partners.
