Language in the recent U.S Supreme Court Dobbs v. Jackson decision regarding abortion raised concerns that the legal rights of unmarried couples of either sex and married couples of the same sex may be facing issues in the future, particularly in states that do not currently protect their rights.  While most legal scholars doubt any loss of existing rights, the Court’s overturning a 50-year precedent sent shockwaves about the sanctity of other long-established personal and privacy constitutional rights.

In short, this is a good time to consider, create, review or update documents that create or rely on your relationships, such as your estate plan (Will/Trust), nuptial agreements, Powers of Attorney, financial documents, shared ownership, transfers on death, healthcare directives, beneficiary designations and other legal documents to ensure they will act as you intend and remain enforceable in the future.
