Changing Venue in LGBT Immigrant Visa Cases

JCS Immigration and Visa has been following changes in immigration procedures and law since the Supreme Court’s decision in Windsor V. U.S., struck down key provisions of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Our Los Angeles immigration attorneys have been working to establish a procedure for changing the venue for immigrant visa processing in cases where the safety of the applicant or beneficiary may be at issue of he or she is made to return to his or her home country to appear for an interview.

This issue was raised at a recent meeting with the Department of State (DOS). The DOS stated they understood the issues facing LGBT applicants who fear returning to their home countries and was quick to act by reaching out to their National Visa Center and providing the following solution to our Los Angeles Immigration lawyers.
