We recently received one of the first approvals for a same-sex marriage case in the Kansas City area. The couple has been together for years, but it has only been since the Supreme Court's decision in US v. Windsor that there has been the possibility for them to remain together permanently in the United States.
The process was fairly smooth, almost identical to what we are used to seeing in traditional marriage cases. Although there was some confusion on the part of the officer as to how to apply the different legal status of same sex marriage where the couple was married as opposed to where they live, the interview was almost without issue.
We have written about this issue in a few of our weekly articles being published in Dos Mundos, in our "Hablando con el Experto" section. Check out Dos Mundos each week for a new article.
