Mark J. Shmueli and Tina R. Goel recently co-authored a chapter, “Same-Sex Marriage and Family-Based Immigration Law” in Family-Based Immigration Law: A Lawyer’s Guide (July 2013), published by the D.C. Bar Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Program.
The chapter provides a history of immigration law and policy towards same-sex marriage including an analysis of the U.S. Supreme Court’s June 26, 2013 decision in Windsor v. US which struck down Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), thus allowing same-sex marriages to be recognized for immigration purposes.
On July 17, 2013, Mark presented an update regarding Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) and DOMA at the D.C. Bar Family Law CLE Program.
