Won the Diversity Visa Lottery: Can I Marry My Same-Sex Partner and Bring Her to the U.S.?
Yes, but don't wait too long to hold the wedding!
I’m from Portugal and my name was drawn in this year’s visa lottery. My girlfriend and I have become quite serious and are talking about marriage. (Same-sex marriage is legal here.) I’ve read that spouses can accompany DV lottery winners, but we’re not yet married. Is it too late to get married and have my new wife get a green card along with me and come to the United States together?
