Hope for same sex couples facing the unknown as Trump takes office.

Many people are feeling full of angst and fear as we face a new president and new administration. I understand and see the fear that this transition will bring. Some of you fear what will happen to your personal rights and some fear what will happen to your loved ones.

If you’re same gender couple who recently got married, or are thinking about getting married, you should to sit down with a legal adviser to take the correct steps to make sure your collective assets are protected to the fullest extent possible. Same thing when it comes to your children. Consult with an attorney to make sure your parental rights are legally secured. Secure IDs and passports as a precautionary measure.

Take a deep breath. There is hope – I always believe in hope and a new tomorrow. For now, begin with these tangible steps and lay the foundation for protecting yourself and the ones that you love to the fullest extent legally possible as you move forward.
