Equal Rights Deserve Equal Protection in New York

At Russo Law Group, P.C., we are LGBTQIA+ friendly and we are knowledgeable in the areas of LGBTQIA+ estate planning including:
- long-term care
- special needs
- and more.
The Importance of New York LGBTQIA+ Estate Planning
Estate planning for the New York LGBTQIA+ community provides protections that safeguard against discrimination when people are reluctant to recognize your relationship, even if you are married. Without an estate plan, you or a loved one may have to give up control of your shared estate or the management of a loved one’s well-being if one of you become incapacitated. An estate plan for an LGBTQIA+ couple is critical for providing the healthy partner appropriate authorities in the case of a sudden accident or illness that leaves your partner unable to make decisions or manage their own affairs.
Planning is critical for even married LGBTQIA+ couples in New York in the unfortunate event you encounter resistance from individuals or institutions to recognize your marital rights. Our experienced New York estate planning attorneys can help you and your loved one navigate the planning process or any legal issues that may arise.
