We are an LGBT-friendly office, and we believe that securing equal rights for LGBT immigrants, and LGBT families going through various immigration processes, is an important part of our mission as a law office and our duty as American citizens.
At a foundational level, we offer LGBT immigration clients all of the services that are available to other clients. We also understand that in many facets of immigration law, the needs of the LGBT community are unique owing to barriers or laws centered on sexual orientation and/or gender identity. In some cases these unique needs center on otherwise simple questions like “Is our foreign marriage or civil union valid in the United States?”, which require a more in depth analysis for LGBT couples than for cisgender families. Or, in the cases of international LGBT adoptions which can be complicated by both legal and non-legal factors at home and abroad when LGBT couples are involved. But in other cases the questions and issues are much darker, like the fact that LGBT immigrants fleeing persecution or living in the U.S. illegally, are a at a higher risk of violence or abuse than other groups.
We promise to treat all of our LGBT clients with respect and to be there every step of the way for whatever immigration-related issue they might face.
