Green card and Gay Marriage: Immigration for Same-Sex Spouses in NYC

Until recently, LGBTQ+(homosexual) couples did not have the same immigration rights as heterosexual couples. The Pride community now has the right to obtain permanent resident status (Green Card) through a same-sex spouse who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

Under federal law, gay and lesbian spouses now have access to the same immigration rights and benefits previously only available to heterosexual couples. In the past, if a non-resident spouse in a same-sex (homosexual) union wanted to obtain a Green Card, they would have to ask their employer to sponsor them.

Some even sought political asylum. With the recent changes in federal law, these impediments are no longer in the way of gay and lesbian couples. The Immigration attorneys at Gehi & Associates – Attorneys at Law P.C. are proud to represent same-sex couples seeking permanent residency through spousal sponsorship.

Recently, a gay married couple who had a lot of trouble in their first Adjustment of Status (AOS) Interview was prepared for weeks by the highly experienced Attorneys at Gehi & Associates. They were more than ready for their second round. The Immigration officer at USCIS, being immensely satisfied, had approved them right on the spot.
