Anyone preparing for the future can face estate planning hurdles. Our Montgomery County estate planning lawyer is ready to assist non-traditional families with all of their estate planning needs. Whether you are a legal guardian, a same-sex family, or a single parent looking to protect your child, we encourage you to contact our firm.

Safeguarding Non-Traditional Families

At Sallen Law, we can work with you to determine what your specific needs are and help draft important legal documents that can protect your loved one’s futures, including:

  • Safeguarding custody of minors
  • Naming beneficiaries in wills and trusts
  • Establishing inheritance and ownership of property
  • Naming beneficiaries in life insurance policies
  • Drafting wishes and instructions for end-of-life and burials
  • Working to minimize taxes for surviving family members
  • Protecting rights and medical directives for children and spouses
  • Safeguarding finances and custody

In accordance with federal laws, including the Defense of Marriage ruling, same-sex couples are entitled to the same federal benefits of heterosexual couples when it comes to estate taxes, wills, and trusts; however, the law must reflect the recognition of same-sex marriages in the couple’s home state. In some cases, inheritance laws, taxes, guardianship, and even life insurance benefits could be denied to same-sex couples and it is important that you work with an attorney to help protect your family.

Initial phone consultations are offered at no charge. Call us today at (215) 809-3900 or complete our online form.
