Same-Sex Immigration

Dallas same sex immigration attorney

For immigration purposes, this means that a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident may now petition on behalf of his or her same-sex spouse for an immigrant visa. Even if the couple does not live in a state which recognizes same-sex marriages, the USCIS will consider the state where the marriage took place to determine if the marriage is valid for immigration purposes.

Same-sex couples are now also eligible to file K-1 (fiancé/fiancée) visa applications, and a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident may be a qualifying relative for his or her same-sex spouse for the purposes of cancellation of removal proceedings and inadmissibility waivers.
