This is a free one-hour briefing in recognition of National Pro Bono Celebration Week!
On June 26, 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court declared Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional, opening a path to immigration benefits for same-sex families for the first time ever. Now that several months have passed, we have a better understanding of what’s proved successful for immigration applicants and what issues remain.
Please join Victoria Neilson, legal director, and Michael Sisitzky, staff attorney, at Immigration Equality, a national organization that advocates for full equality under U.S. immigration law for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and HIV-positive individuals and their families, for a free one-hour briefing. Topics to be discussed include:
• Agency guidance issued since the DOMA decision
• Anecdotes from clients and practitioners: what’s going well and what isn’t?
• Challenging cases and possible strategies
• LGBT family issues that are not solved by the end of DOMA
