The U.S. Supreme Court's groundbreaking decision in United States v. Windsor will have monumental implications for U.S. immigration policy, as it will soon make it possible for same-gender married couples to enjoy equal immigration benefits. Please join our U.S. immigration experts as they present a webinar covering this decision and its impact. 

A few specifics to be covered are:

  • New opportunities for Non-Immigrant Visa “derivative” status in connection with work visas (H-1B, L-1, O-1, “I,” TN, E-1, E-2, E-3, and others)
  • Expanded options for Non-Immigrant “derivative” status in connection with student or exchange visitor visas (F-1, M-1, and J-1)
  • Discussion of green cards for binational couples:  U.S. citizen sponsoring a foreign national
  • New options for same-gender spouses of those sponsored for employment-based green cards
  • Update regarding USCIS processing of cases already in the filing “pipeline”
  • Shorter waiting period for naturalization for couples in “marital union”
