This event has passed.

Attorney Benjamin Premack of The Premack Law Office, PLLC, will lead a workshop on how people in non-traditional polyamorous or non-monogamous relationships can enjoy many of the same legal powers and rights as married couples. He will discuss a variety of matters including issues of inheritance, property ownership/co-ownership, health care, children, finances, end of life planning, and planning in the event of an end to the relationship. Mr. Premack will also address how these protections and rights can be shared between poly couples, triads, and moresomes even when some of the people in the relationship are married.

The workshop will last for two hours with plenty of time for questions and answers. After the workshop Mr. Premack is offering a free 15 minute consultation to each attendee.

Cost at the door: $25.
