Making it legal: a guide to same-sex marriage, domestic partnerships & civil unions
275 pages. No updates available.
As same-sex marriage is available in several U.S. States and Canada, this book tries to answer questions for same-sex couples. Some of the issues addressed are your state's rules about same-sex partnerships, whether your marriage will be recognized in other states, how marriage will affect you if have children, whether or not a will or living trust is needed and other legal issues. This edition also contains updated laws for all states. The appendix also includes a relationship recognition chart, which shows states with some form of recognition for same-sex couples along with some of the laws for that state.
