Immigration for Same Sex Partners
With the Supreme Court’s decision that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional, a pathway to immigration benefits has been opened allowing immigration for same sex partners.
All signs point to USCIcc_immigration_equality_130129_wgS being both ready and willing to accept petitions and applications on behalf of binational LGBT couples who are legally married. USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas has gone so far as to reveal a list has been kept since February 2011 of all green card petitions denied based on DOMA, and says that USCIS is “prepared to act.”
Immigration benefits will be available for both Immigrant (green card) and Nonimmigrant (generally work related) visas.
The process for sponsoring your same sex spouse will be identical to the processes already in place.
