Implications of DOMA and Prop 8 Rulings: The new frontier in same-sex family law and estate planning

On June 26, 2013 the United States Supreme Court issued the long anticipated rulings in the first marriage cases to reach the high court – United States v. Windsor, No. 12-307, and Hollingsworth v. Perry, No. 12-144.  Taken together, the decisions represent a significant step in the central civil rights issue of this era – the rights and responsibilities of same sex couples to marry and to raise children.

Please join BALIF and JAMS for a complimentary panel discussion that will address the immediate family law and financial planning implications of these decisions and the questions that remain.  Topics to be addressed include:

  • Overview of Windsor and Perry rulings and questions that remain
  • Key issues in pending Ninth Circuit cases
  • Financial planning issues for California residents before and after DOMA, including estate plans, ERISA, and estate, income and gift tax issues
  •  Issues for California employer benefit plans
  • The impact of the cases on dissolution actions and resolving disputes in an ADR setting

Edward P. Joy, Attorney at Law, Estate Planning, Probate & Probate Litigation
Nickolas A. Kacprowski, Partner, Kirkland & Ellis LLP

Hon. Catherine Gallagher (Ret.), JAMS
