LGBT IMMIGRATION & FIANCÉ VISAS
COUNSEL FROM A NEW YORK IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY
Immigration issues can be challenging to navigate, especially when you are involved in a LGBT relationship. Though the LGBT community celebrated the fall of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), couples are still struggling to work through various immigration matters. While this is an exciting time for LGBT couples, all should be aware that there are many legalities that must still be worked through in immigration law, especially when it comes to securing fiancé visas.
At The Fisher Legal Group, we are passionate about helping LGBT couples resolve complex immigration matters. As New York City immigration attorneys, we have handled a wide range of cases, ranging from basic green card challenges to intricate visa applications. If you are in a LGBT relationship with an individual who is not a resident or citizen of the U.S., now is the time to move forward with securing their right to be in the country.
Let our legal team guide you through the visa process! Call now to set up a consultation.
HOW THE END OF DOMA IMPACTS LGBT COUPLES
Not only did DOMA creating obstacles for same-sex couples within the United States, but it also made it nearly impossible for same-sex partners from other countries to secure a visa, often separating many couples. Now that the third section of DOMA has been removed, it allows same-sex couples and their children to be eligible for equal immigration benefits. This means that a foreign partner may be able to obtain a fiancé visa (K-1), securing status as a permanent resident of the U.S. Our firm can help you work through this process and ensure that your application is handled correctly from start to finish.
REPRESENTING LGBT INDIVIDUALS FOR OTHER MATTERS
We are also proud to represent LGBT individuals who need assistance maneuvering through the immigration system in light of various complications. For instance, if you are a transgender individual who like to identify as your real gender, you may need to take certain legal steps to ensure there are no obstacles when traveling internationally.
Our firm can provide guidance for the following:
- Updating personal information on travel documents
- Securing asylum for those suffering persecution due to sexual preferences
- Obtaining visas for LGBT victims of violence, criminal activity, or sex trafficking
Whether you are in a same-sex relationship and need legal counsel for securing residency rights or are a LGBT immigrant who has been abused due to your preferences or gender identity, the New York immigration lawyers at the Fisher Legal Group can help.
