Last summer, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act).
Among its other benefits, this decision paved the way for foreign nationals married to same-sex U.S. citizen partners to obtain green cards.
I am happy to say that since the demise of DOMA I have represented several same-sex married couples who have successfully completed the U.S. green card process, including most recently a green card issued yesterday; great evidence of increasing equality and fairness in our country in general and our immigration system in particular.
See Marriage Equality for additional information and resources about same-sex marriage issues.
