This is a free one-hour briefing in recognition of National Pro Bono Celebration Week!

Taken from the briefing Immigration After Windsor: Benefits, Pitfalls, and Open Questions for Lesbian and Gay Immigrant Families in a Post-DOMA World recorded October, 2013.

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 is going well for immigration applicants and what issues remain.

Listen to 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 briefing.

Lecture Topics  [Total Time: 01:06:58]

  • 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
