Creating The Right Legal Structure For Your Situation

In June 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide. The court's decision is a very welcome one for same-sex couples in Kentucky.

What Steps Do You Need To Take Now?

Now that same-sex marriage is legal in Kentucky under the U.S. Supreme Court's decision, you may be considering what steps you need to give your family life a firm legal foundation.

  • Joint accounts or debts — Even if you haven't gotten married to your partner, you may already have a shared financial life. This could include elements such as home ownership, joint bank accounts or joint debts. Whether you get married or not, you will want to review whether arrangements such as these continue to make sense for your situation.
  • Cohabitation agreements — If you and your partner aren't planning to get married, you may still want to put a cohabitation agreement to govern what would happen if you split up.
  • Prenups — If you have been together for a while and accumulated assets together, you may want to consider a prenuptial agreement before getting married. A prenup could be used to clarify who would get what in the event your marriage ends in divorce.
  • Divorce — Of course, divorce is a possibility in any marital relationship. Todd K. Bolus is a skilled attorney who can explain your legal options and work with you to attain your goals either at the outset or at the conclusion of a same-sex relationship.
