Same Sex Couples to be Allowed to Sponsor Visas
IMMIGRATION INSIGHTS: Now here is some good news, long-awaited. USCIS is accepting new immigration applications from same-sex couples, and is reviewing older cases to overturn past denials. One of the most difficult tasks I have had in my career as an Immigration Lawyer has been explaining to same sex couples that, until now, there was not a legal pathway to a visa based their relationship. Fair is fair, everyone deserves equal treatment, and the right to choose who to love. Pass the word!
The Bulgarian man and his American husband were the first same-sex couple to get approval for a permanent resident visa after the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act.
