LGBTQ+ Immigration Lawyer
Serving Orange County and the Surrounding Areas
Yekrangi & Associates is an immigration law firm proudly owned and operated by members of the LGBTQ+ community. We specialize in providing the highest level of legal representation for immigration cases involving individuals and couples within this diverse and vibrant community.
Experience in LGBT+ Immigration Cases
Our entire legal team understands that immigration issues can be particularly complex for members of the LGBTQ+ community. Whether you are seeking asylum based on persecution due to your sexual orientation or navigating the intricacies of family-based immigration as an LGBTQ+ individual or couple, our experienced immigration attorneys are here to guide you through every step of the process. Many of our clients are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender and we have tremendous experience with the unique issues facing this community.
Asylum and Refugee Cases
Many individuals within the LGBTQ+ community come to the United States fleeing countries where they face severe discrimination, violence, or even the threat of death because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. For those facing persecution in their home countries, seeking asylum or refugee status is a critical and often life-saving option.
At Yekrangi & Associates, our immigration lawyers are well-versed in the unique challenges and legal requirements associated with LGBTQ+ asylum and refugee cases. We are dedicated to providing a safe and supportive environment for our clients as they pursue a new beginning in the United States.
While significant strides have been made in recognizing and protecting the rights of same-sex couples, some countries still criminalize same-sex relationships or fail to legally acknowledge them. As a result, LGBTQ+ couples may encounter barriers in sponsoring their partners for immigration benefits, necessitating legal help.
Family unification is a cornerstone of immigration law, and our firm is passionate about helping LGBTQ+ families successfully navigate the immigration system. Whether you are sponsoring a same-sex partner, spouse, or family member, our attorneys have a deep understanding of the unique needs you face when it comes to family-based immigration.
DACA and Undocumented LGBTQ+ Individuals
Undocumented LGBTQ+ individuals face distinct challenges. Some may have escaped places where being openly LGBTQ+ is criminalized, while others may have fled due to family rejection or violence. Securing legal status in the United States becomes a critical need for these individuals, requiring specialized knowledge and compassionate advocacy.
At Yekrangi & Associates, our immigration lawyers are dedicated to helping DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients and undocumented LGBTQ+ individuals obtain legal status in the U.S., providing a path toward a more secure future.
Why Choose Yekrangi & Associates?
As a law firm that is proudly LGBT-owned and operated, our intimate understanding of the unique challenges faced by individuals within this diverse community is rooted in recognizing and addressing the specific immigration hurdles they encounter.
In addition to the immigration matters above, transgender individuals face specific challenges related to immigration, such as ensuring that their gender identity is respected and recognized throughout the immigration process.
