As of 2012, under Maryland law, same sex couples who are married have the same estate planning and estate preservation tools as traditional married couples. Maryland law also allows domestic partners to pass certain assets to their surviving domestic partner free of inheritance tax through a domestic partnership agreement. We’ll help you create an estate plan that addresses the couple’s children and the titling of assets to ensure that they are passing in accordance with your wishes.
For same-sex couples, preplanning helps protect you both.
