Legalization of same sex spouse for undocumented immigrants
In the Obama comprehensive immigration reform there is enormous emphasis on keeping families together and the great news is that now those of you who are in a gay or lesbian relationship will have the same rights as heterosexual couples. Not only does the DOMA ruling makes it more probably that CIR will become law, but it also means that gays and lesbians will not be discriminated. So, nothing else really changes, except that when you are doing the paperwork for RPI status, you will be able to include your same sex partner. The other great news is that if you are in a same-sex relationship with someone who is in the United States legally (citizen or permanent resident or other legal status), you will be able to adjust your status without waiting for immigration bill to become law.
