Immigration Solutions For Same-Sex Couples

In July of 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was unconstitutional. This means that now the federal government will recognize same-sex marriages as valid in many situations, allowing same-sex couples the same types of immigration rights as opposite-sex couples. There are still very complicated matters that need to be addressed, and having an experienced lawyer in your corner could make the difference in your immigration case.

At the law firm of Bean, Lloyd, Mukherji, & Taylor, LLP in Oakland, California, we have a well-respected reputation for protecting our clients’ rights in all immigration matters. If you are in a same-sex marriage and have immigration questions, contact our law firm to learn more about your options.

Helping Same-Sex Couples Achieve Their Immigration Goals

With the fall of DOMA, same-sex couples will have the same rights as heterosexual couples, including:

  • U.S. spouses can petition for spousal visas for their foreign national spouse
  • Hardship between the same-sex spouses is now a factor in granting visas and in deportation hearings
  • Same-sex spouses can now be considered derivatives on visa applications

Even if a couple is married in a state that allows for same-sex marriage and then moves back to a state that prohibits it, the federal government will still recognize the rights of the couple.

If you are wondering what rights you have as a same-sex couple with immigration concerns now that DOMA has taken a fatal blow, do not hesitate to consult with an experienced immigration lawyer today.
