New Laws Don’t Always Lead to Smooth Proceedings in Mesa, AZ

Reach out to an LGBT community lawyer for immigration assistance

Since the 2015 ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states, LGBT immigration law follows the same precedents as other family immigration issues. This means that, if you need to procure a visa for your spouse or child, you face the same issues as a heterosexual family dealing with the immigration system would. However, LGBT clients face some unique issues. These include:

  • Potential changes in same-sex marriage legalization – since it’s such a political talking point, many LGBT immigrants worry about any sudden changes in the legal rights of their spouses who have not crossed the border yet.
  • Medical needs while detained – this comes into play when transgender individuals or HIV-positive individuals are detained and denied medically necessary care or medication.
  • Home country persecution – many LGBT immigrants come to the U.S. to escape the persecution they face in their home countries.

When you or your spouse need help navigating the immigration process as an LGBT person, call 480-355-4245 to speak with an attorney at The Law Offices of Lemuel A. Carlos.
