Windsor v. United States was a landmark Supreme Court case, ending on June 26, 2013, which declared DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) as unconstitutional under the Fifth Amendment. This decision bestows same-sex marriages the same protections and privileges as traditional marriages. Same-sex couples who legally marry may now be sponsored by their U.S. citizen spouse for their green card for the first time ever.Included among these new rights that same-sex marriages have recently attained is the ability to sponsor spouses of the same sex to come to the U.S. from abroad for permanent residence.
This is a tremendous new opportunity for couples that have waited many years for their relationships and marriages to be acknowledged as equal, and here at Nichols Law Offices, PLLC, we have the knowledge and tools to help these people.
