Historic First Same-sex Marriage Green Card Approval

The DOMA Project is a campaign to stop the deportations, separations, and exile of gay and lesbian binational couples caused by the Defense of Marriage Act. Since it was founded in 2010 by attorneys, the DOMA Project has filed almost 100 green card petitions for same-sex couples affected by DOMA.  On February 13, 2013, the DOMA Project filed a green card application on behalf of Julian Marsh for his Bulgarian husband, Traian Popov (married in 2011 in New York City).  Just two days after the historic Supreme Court ruling striking down the Defense of Marriage Act Section 3, Julian and Traian received the good news that the petition was approved.  For the full details, visit the DOMA Project.
