About This Course

Recent decisions by the United States Supreme Court have immediate ramifications for same sex couples throughout the nation. The rights and responsibilities of same couples who reside in a state that does not recognize same-sex marriage may not be equivalent to those of couples who live in a recognition state regardless of whether they were married in a recognition state.

This CLE course brings together leading experts in the field of LGBT law who will review the federal benefits and their application after the Windsor decision as well as the many issues that have arisen as a result. These topics include the decision’s implications in immigration law and sponsorship of a same-sex spouse, the federal benefits currently applicable and those still under review, tax implications, family law and children of same-sex spouses, estate planning implications, the impact of President Obama’s response to the DOMA decision, and the extent to which this recent decision is the pathway to national recognition of same-sex marriages.
