The June 26, 2015 Supreme Court Ruling in Obergerfell vs. Hodges provides equal protection for same-sex marriage. This series of fact sheets produced by WISER and SAGE's National Resource Center on LGBT Aging is designed to help LGBT couples understand their finances in relation to marriage, divorce and widowhood, all life events that now have the benefit of equal protection and due process.

Going through a divorce can be a very emotional and difficult situation to navigate, which can leave individuals financially vulnerable as well. If you are considering a divorce or in the process of one, it is

important to focus on your finances and what you need to do to protect yourself before your divorce is finalized.
