Maximilian Law Inc. receives its first green card approval based on same sex marriage
Maximilian Law Inc. is proud to announce that it received its first approval of a green card for its clients based on a same sex marriage petition. In June 2013, the Supreme Court struck down key provisions of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), thereby allowing homosexuals to sponsor their partner spouses for U.S. permanent residency. "I have been in the United States for the last 24 years as an out of status immigrant. I am proud to say that as of October 29, 2013, I am officially a Legal Resident. It’s been a long road and I have Cedric Shen of Maximilian Law to thank. I have been with my wife for almost seven years. But we never had the same rights as heterosexual couples until the monumental striking down of DOMA by the Supreme Court. Cedric was so helpful even prior to the laws changing. His vast knowledge of immigration laws made me feel more at ease during such a stressful process. He made the process easy and simple to understand. He answered all of our questions thoroughly and always responded with communication quickly. He is simply the best! I can’t say enough praises about Cedric! We are truly blessed to have found him!” - S.S. & J.B.
