IAFL Press Release: Against restriction of US G-4 Visas to married persons

IAFL Press Release: Against Restrictions of US G-4 Visas To Married Persons

The International Academy of Family Lawyers and the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers condemn the decision of the US State Department to restrict G-4 visas to married persons and to end, as of October 1, 2018, the previous policy allowing same-sex domestic partners to qualify.

The G-4 visa is used by foreign diplomats and employees of international organizations to live in the US. Since 2009 it has been necessary for such persons to provide evidence of marriage in order for their immediate family members to qualify for G-4 status. Recognizing that marriage for same-sex couples is allowed in only a small number of countries, the US has until now extended G-4 status to same-sex domestic partners. The recent directive by the State Department brings an immediate halt to that valuable accommodation for non-married but coupled diplomats and employees.

The effect of this decision is to discriminate against same-sex couples from countries that do not allow or recognize same-sex marriage. It will effectively prevent members of the LGBTI community from certain countries from living and working in the US and will have a significant negative impact on the diversity of organizations, including the United Nations. Moreover, it puts at risk diplomats and employees of international organizations who could be discriminated against, abused and/or criminally prosecuted by their own governments if they married in the US in an effort to maintain their G-4 status. This new rule is a deeply troublesome and retrograde step which erodes the civil rights gains of recent years.

Both the International Academy of Family Lawyers and the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers call for this decision to be immediately reversed. Both organizations reaffirm their support of efforts towards full equality of the LGBTI community throughout the world and the end to rules that unfairly discriminate against such individuals and, in many countries, criminalize countless couples because of the ones they love.

The International Academy of Family Lawyers and the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers condemn the decision of the US State Department to restrict G-4 visas to married persons and to end, as of October 1, 2018, the previous policy allowing same-sex domestic partners to qualify.

(Anchoring )How To Make A Smart First Offer|Palm Beach Divorce Lawyer

How To Make A Smart First Offer:

Anchoring bias, or focalism, is a term often used in psychology that defines the human tendency to rely too heavily on a specific piece of information when making decisions. Oftentimes, an anchoring bias will cause an individual to overly rely on specific information or values and subsequently adjust the information to account for other elements in the decision-making process. I.e., buying a used car and focusing only on the mileage to determine the car’s value instead of taking other factors into account, such as engine maintenance and accident information...
