Protecting the Rightsof LGBT Clients in Salt Lake City
On Wednesday, June 26th, 2013 the US Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (“DOMA”) as being unconstitutional. The result of this ruling means that USCIS and the US Immigration authorities will no longer discriminate against lawfully married same-sex couples seeking a “green card” for a non-US Citizen or non-LPR spouse. Despite the recent action of the US Supreme Court striking down DOMA and thereby allowing same-sex partners of US Citizens and Permanent Residents to obtain “Green Cards” there remain unique issue facing LGBT couples. Mr. Cardenas is highly familiar with these issues and how to 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, fiance visa petitions based upon same-sex relationships, VAWA petitions based upon same sex marriage to a USC citizen, representation of individuals in deportation and removal proceedings, and representing individuals seeking asylum based on their sexuality.
