LGBTQ Estate Planning in the Commonwealth of Virginia

Because the laws in place are not perfect, those who identify as LGBTQ in life will have certainly have specific challenges to consider when they create their estate plan. Our office is committed to providing representation to everyone, including those who are homosexual, bisexual, or transgender. We pride ourselves on offering everyone the advice that they need to make sure they get the fullest protections available to them under Virginia law.

The simple truth is that unless you legally appoint the decision-maker of your own selection in advance through proper estate planning, then a probate judge will select one for you. The probate court process to accomplish this is expensive (it employs at least three attorneys), discloses your private personal and financial information to the public record and is a real hassle for your loved ones!

Did you know that in the absence of proper estate planning your assets may be distributed after death based on “one-size-fits-all” state laws written for those who did not have their own estate plan in place? Of course, this impersonal estate plan written by state lawmakers may not actually reflect your own unique circumstances and objectives for your loved ones and assets that you had in mind.

Our office can help you avoid these sort of probate issues and replace that impersonal, state-written, 'one-size-fits-all' estate plan with one we design together for your unique circumstances, wishes and personal objectives. We even help you coordinate the beneficiary designations on your life insurance and retirement plans with your estate plan to avoid unpleasant, unintended consequences.
