Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) Decision Opens Way for Same-sex immigrant petitions

Jul 2, 2013 | Family Immigration

The Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said that the Supreme Court ruling will allow U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents petition for their same-sex spouses who would be able to obtain their “green cards”. It is estimated that 36,000 foreign nationals will benefit from this groundbreaking ruling.
