The Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act became effective on June 1, 2011. The law recognizes a new legal relationship that is in many ways similar to marriage, but with certain limitations. Iverson will review the law and explain the rights and benefits of Illinois citizens with Civil Union status.
The seminar will include information about obtaining and dissolving a Civil Union in Illinois, inheritance rights, the right to renounce a partner’s will, factors involved with making important health decisions for an incapacitated partner, as well as issues such as filing a joint state income tax return. Following the lecture, Iverson will make time for questions and an interactive discussion about the law and its impact on those present.
