The Impact of Supreme Court's Upcoming Decision on Same-Sex CouplesJune 25, 2013
Motions to Reopen Removal Proceedings Under VartelasJuly 16, 2013
USCIS has issued guidance
on the implementation of last week’s Supreme Court decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act. The guidance tells adjudicators to treat same-sex couples the same as heterosexual couples in immigration petitions. This guidance came after Secretary Napolitano directed
USCIS yesterday to treat the petitions equally.
This comes on the heels of the approval
of the first adjustment of status petition for a same-sex couple in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. This is great news!!!!
