While U.S. immigration law currently prevents Americans from sponsoring a same-sex partner for a green card, a "Diversity Visa Lottery" presents a limited window of opportunity for legally keeping LGBT bi-national families together.
"Frequently the only hope for thousands of LGBT immigrants who want to come to or remain in the U.S., the Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery is a simple, free, online-only program to provide immigrant visas (green cards) to individuals from countries with low overall levels of immigration to the United States," Immigration Equality notes.
The organization has laid out a simple step by step online application guide. And those who need assistance after reading through the instructions can also contact Pamela Denzer at firstname.lastname@example.org for more help on taking part in the lottery.
