Whether you are married, domestic partners or haven’t decided, you already know that marriage recognized by the Federal government comes with a range of benefits — from income taxes to more advantageous
ways to bequeath and inherit money. You may have even experienced
how being unprotected by the law can be mildly irritating, or financially
and emotionally devastating.
In California, at the moment, you must decide whether to become Registered Domestic
Partners or married. The rights and responsibilities are different. We walk you through the pros and cons and
how each might impact your relationship.
At Financial Connections, we understand and empathize with the frustrating
issues facing gays and lesbians — whether in a committed relationship
or not. Single members of the LGBT community need to plan for their financial, health, and legal circumstances as well.
If you're interested in issues surrounding estate planning, investment
management, tax preparation, or other financial planning services,
you'll find a supportive atmosphere at Financial Connections. We welcome
the chance to meet with you.
