In a 5-4 ruling yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act as unconstitutional. The decision opened the door for many same-sex couples to now obtain immigration benefits for their partners. If you are LGBT and have been married in a state that has legalized same-sex marriage, you can now file an immigration petition for your partner and the U.S. Government will recognize the marriage for immigration purposes. This is an incredible moment in the history of civil rights, and North County Immigration proudly serves the LGBT community and their immigration needs.
