A Melville law firm will sponsor a telephone hotline to provide same-sex couples with information about financial and legal rights under New York’s Marriage Equality Act.
Attorneys from Genser, Dubow, Genser & Cona will answer questions regarding same-sex marital rights on Sept. 20 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The hotline phone number is 631-390-5000.
“Not only do same-sex couples need to know about tax issues, but they also need to know their rights regarding inheritance, Social Security benefits, divorce, Medicaid rules, life insurance, real estate, and many other matters,” said Paul Hyl, senior associate at the firm.
The firm is also offering a free tip sheet explaining many of the rights for same-sex couples who marry.
