Immigration Solutions for Same-Sex Couples

Gloria Cardenas and her legal team at Familia America strongly believe in the equal rights and treatment of all people. Your same sex immigration attorney and her entire staff are personally committed to supporting you and your immigration goals. The United States government treats same sex marriage equally under the law. However, often times, same sex marriage is not permitted in your loved one's country. The LGBTQ community faces unique challenges in the immigration process. We have solutions for you. One of those being a virtual marriage and then consummation of the marriage. If you are a United States citizen, a fiance visa might be a good option. We warmly welcome members of LGBTQ community at Familia America and zealously represent your unique challenges in the immigration process. Ms. Cardenas protects her client's rights during the process and at the immigration interview. She makes it stress-free.

Protecting The Rights of LGBTG Clients

On April 25, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court confirmed the equal protection of same sex marriage in the landmark case of Obergefell v. Hodges. However, since June 26th, 2013, the USCIS and all US immigration officials have recognized same sex marriage for immigration purposes. This was in response to the US Supreme Court's decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act ("DOMA") as unconstitutional. Despite these decisions, LGBTQ couples face unique obstacles in the green card process. Mr. Cardenas is highly familiar with these issues and how to approach and resolve them. We are experienced and can handle these issues: Applications and Petitions for married same-sex couples, step-children of married same-sex couples, fiancé visa petitions based upon same-sex relationships, VAWA petitions based upon same sex marriage to a United States citizen, widow/widower's petitions, and representing individuals seeking asylum based on their sexual orientation.

How a Same Sex Immigration Attorney Can Help
