Since the June 2013 landmark Supreme Court ruling holding Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional, I have helped a number of same-sex couples obtain permanent residence for the foreign national spouse.  I have worked on a number of same-sex fiancé visas, as well as immigrant visas and adjustment of status cases based on gay marriages.  As long as the marriage is valid in the state or jurisdiction where it took place, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and the State Department will recognize it.  Same-sex spouses are now equally eligible for the same immigration benefits as opposite gender spouses.  I am passionate about helping same-sex couples be able to stay together.  Since the ruling, there is that feeling of “finally, we can do this” and “there is no better time than now.”
