29 Dec Same Sex Marriage
DOMA SUCCESS STORY: US CITIZEN WILLING TO UNDERGO SEX CHANGE FOR PARTNER’S GREEN CARD Gretchen’s (left) family did not approve of her relationship with Joelette (right). Gretchen was pursuing her green card as a nurse, but her case was denied due to a wage issue. Joelette, a US citizen, was willing to do anything to help petition her spouse – even to undergo a sex change and become a “man.” When DOMA was struck down, they sought the help of Atty. Michael J. Gurfinkel, and Gretchen was able to get a green card in a mere 3 months, through a same-sex spousal petition by Joelette.
