Gay Marriage Immigration Green Card

 
DOMA IS OVERTURNED BY THE SUPREME COURT AND GAY MARRIAGE IS NOW ALLOWED FOR IMMIGRATION AND GREEN CARD PURPOSES AS WELL

Yesterday the Supreme Court overturned DOMA and gay marriages will now be allowed for immigration purposes. The entire decision is available here:   http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/12pdf/12-144_8ok0.pdf

This is a long-awaiting victory for the community and changes will soon be visible. At this time, we have to wait for the appeal period. As soon as that has left, we will witness huge changes occurring rapidly, as the CIS (immigration department) will have to make changes in order to allow same-sex Green Card Adjustment of Status cases.

Currently, the wait for a Green Card is 8-12 months, whether the person is living in the US or abroad, although there are subtle differences between the two. Once a married spouse has a Green Card for three years, he or she can apply for US citizenship, but it is not mandatory. After filing a case, the person will receive work authorization in 30-60 days and can work wherever they like.  For more information, visit http://www.myImmigrationAttorney.com or call SanDiegoBizLaw at 619-677-5727.

Probably the most informative 10 minute conversation I have ever had. I had some questions regarding the new h1b restrictions and it's impact on future physicians and Steve was able to spell it out for me in a very concise manner. I'm so happy I just decided to call, because ...

I never felt alone along the process. Whenever Mike or I had any confusion it was promptly cleared up by the lawyer’s office, by either the lawyer Steven Riznyk himself or his very capable and friendly assistant, Emily Butler. Many thanks for sticking with us throughout the application process. Since ...
