Couple Reunited After Years in Limbo
A spousal sponsorship appeal was recently allowed for a deserving couple separated for far too long. After her application to sponsor her husband to Canada was refused, the sponsor retained our office to initiate an appeal. We worked with the sponsor and applicant to provide strong evidence that their relationship is genuine and was not entered into primarily for immigration benefit. After the sponsor testified at her hearing, the Minister agreed that the evidence was irrefutable and consented to allowing the appeal. The Member also agreed, and the appeal was allowed. This is the best possible result for this couple who will soon be together in Canada.
