Fiance Visas for same sex couples are now legal.
I recently wrote a piece on the US Supreme Court’s recent ruling against The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). There seems to be some confusion and for that reason, its worth repeating again.
The recent Supreme Court’s ruling against The Defense of Marriage Act gives married gay couples all the federal benefits and rights that straight married couples are entitled to, which includes the legal right to apply for a K1 Fiance Visa, a CR1/IR1 Marriage visa and Legal Permanent Residency for same sex spouses.
There are still some questions about where you can get married to a same sex partner and how such same sex marriages will be viewed in states where it is not yet recognized and allowed, but these issues will work themselves out and should not keep you from applying for immigration benefits. With our help and support, its time to try!
Please feel free to call me 1-888-515-3529 to discuss your same sex marriage plans and your need for Immigration help. Our office would be happy to assist you in filing for a same sex fiancé visa, marriage visa or help with adjusting your partners status to obtain Legal Permanent Residency based on your same sex marriage.
