Immigration into the U.S. is always difficult, and if you’re committed to someone of the same sex, it can be even more difficult and anxiety-provoking. In 2013, as you may know, the United States Supreme Court cleared a path for migration in same-sex marriages. While nothing now blocks citizens and lawful permanent residents from pursuing immigration benefits for their same-sex spouses, you’ll still need the help of a good California immigration lawyer. And experienced Glendale same-sex couple immigration lawyer at MC @ FC Law have considerable experience helping those in same-sex marriages with the particular immigration problems they face.
WE KEEP CURRENT – FOR YOU
Under current U.S. law – which is always subject to change – same-sex couples married in a nation, state, or jurisdiction where same-sex marriage is legally recognized receive the same immigration benefits as opposite-sex couples. You may pursue and obtain migration benefits for your same-sex spouse as long as the marriage was conducted in a jurisdiction where same-sex marriage is recognized. Since 2013, U.S. Citizenship and migration Services reviews immigration visa petitions filed on behalf of a same-sex spouse in the same way as those submitted on behalf of an opposite-sex spouse. In the United States, laws regarding both immigration and same-sex marriage are rapidly evolving and changing, so the advice of an attorney who stays abreast and focuses exclusively on migration law is imperative, both now and in the future, and not just for same-sex couples, but for everyone.
