      Immigration Issues for LGBT Couples After DOMA (MLF)

      Kelly McCown, Co-founder and Partner, McCown & Evans LLP; Attorney at Law; Certified Specialist in Immigration and Nationality Law


      In a landmark decision earlier this year, the Supreme Court declared Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional in United States v. Windsor. What does this mean for LGBT binational couples? Many immigration benefits are now available to lesbian and gay couples, including green cards, fiancé visas and derivative non-immigrant benefits. Immigration attorney McCown's presentation will include: understanding the" place of celebration" rule used to define marriages for immigration purposes, documenting the validity of a marriage, choosing between processing a green card in the U.S. vs. abroad, sponsoring a foreign fiance, and obtaining dependent visas for foreign spouses of visa holders. She will also address the particular challenges that LGBT couples face in negotiating the U.S. immigration process.
