wildes & weinberg, p.c. attends new jersey’s 2nd annual same sex wedding giveaway bash

Wildes & Weinberg, P.C. attends New Jersey’s 2nd Annual Same Sex Wedding Giveaway Bash at Vegas NJ, New Jersey’s hottest event venue in Randolph, NJ, November 6, 2014.

Founded in 1960, Wildes & Weinberg, P.C. is a New York based boutique law firm consisting of over forty individuals which is solely dedicated to the practice of U.S. Immigration and Nationality Law. Today, the firm has offices in midtown Manhattan, Englewood, NJ and Miami, FL and continues to services the immigration needs of individuals as well as  prominent American and International organizations in connection with the personnel needs of their foreign national employees.

Until recently, only heterosexual spouses/partners could take advantage of America’s immigration laws. However, times have changed and the push to obtain civil marriage rights and benefits for same-sex couples has become a reality, especially since the overturning of DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act). Now those in the LGBTQ community, can live and work in the United States with their American Citizen counterparts. Managing Partner Michael Wildes, a frequent legal analyst and commentator on network television and radio and contributing author, discusses this hot topic with The Huffington Post and The Fire Island Reporter.

In addition to filing many immigrant petition green card cases based on same sex marriages, the firm recently applied for its first ever employment authorization card for a same sex spouse of an L-1 visa holder. The L-1 visa is a non-immigrant visa that is available to employees of an international company with offices in both the United States and abroad. The visa allows the recipient to relocate to the corporations US offices, having worked abroad for the company for at least one continues year and the US and non-US employer must be related either as parent/subsidiary, branch/headquarters, sister companies owned by a mutual parent, or as affiliate companies. One of the benefits afforded to spouses of L-1 visa holders, as opposed to many other visa types, is that the spouses of L-1 visa holders are allowed to work without restriction in the U.S. when using the L-2 visa.  “This was a proud moment in our firm’s history” stated Michael Wildes, whose commitment to community service and outreach is exemplified by his attendance at events such as this.
