Avvo.com to host live Facebook Q&A about immigration issues for same-sex couples post-DOMA

This Thursday, Seattle-based legal advice site Avvo.com will be hosting a live Facebook Q&A event on immigration benefits for same-sex couples after the latest DOMA ruling.

The impact of the Supreme Court's recent DOMA ruling on immigration law is monumental for same-sex couples. For example: now foreign-born nationals in same-sex marriages have the right to obtain a green card, as do their foreign-born children. 

During the one hour event Elizabeth Blandon, a legal immigration expert of Blandon Law, will be answering questions regarding same-sex immigration issues. Topics include:

  • Green card applications and renewal
  • Asylum
  • Qualifying relatives
  • Deportation

RSVP on Facebook and post your questions on their page to get answers next Thursday, August 29th at 1PM PT/4PM ET.
