Do you and your partner think you qualify for immigration benefits (such as a green card) as a same-sex, married couple? The following immigration benefits are now available to same-sex married couples after the Supreme Court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act (“DOMA”):
- the right to be petitioned for by a same-sex U.S. citizen spouse
- the right to be granted derivative status as the spouse of a non-immigrant visa holder
- the right to be included in a spouse’s green card application, derivative asylee/refugee benefits
- the right to be a qualifying relative for Cancellation of Removal purposes
