Partner rights for same-sex marriage

Asked over 1 year ago - Nashville, TN

Hi . I'm in the US with a student - visa and in a same - sex relationship . My partner and I wish to get married in one of the states were it is legal to do so . She is a fellow non - US person , and she has a 10 year tourist visa to the US . We were thinking about the possibility of her staying with me for a semester while I attend grad school . Is there any way in which we could legally change her status to a partner visa ( 2 ) so that she would have no issue staying on the US with a tourist visa for so long ? Thanks !

    Answered . There is no such thing as a, "partner," visa and same sex relationships are not recognised as immediate relatives.
