    Beyond summing up legal rules and writing competent agreements, a representative of this market needs to integrate and interpret the legal rules for your clients in a realistic, comprehensible, and meaningful manner. Only by doing so can you effectively guide your clients, heterosexual and homosexual, in making wise decisions about their homes, their children, and their assets. The fourteen chapters discuss everything that an unmarried couple is likely to encounter, including:
    • Living apart, living together and the option of marriage
    • Covering their assets: debts, liability, insurance
    • Tax consequences, liabilities and benefits
    • Real estate ownership and management
    • Cohabitation and financial agreements
    • The rules and practices of parentage
    • Illness and disability planning
    • Estate planning concerns and practices
    • Moving on: the substantive legal doctrines
    This second edition also features completely new and updated sections covering federal recognition of same-sex marriage, the DOMA ruling, and California's Proposition 8, as well as an entirely revised state law chart. Included is a CD-ROM containing all the documents you'll need to represent these couples, from co-ownership agreements to co-parenting adoptions to sample wills.
