Couple Reunited At Last!
Husband and wife, separated for nearly 5 years while waiting for their spousal sponsorship to reunite them in Canada, find success at the Immigration Appeal Division. The couple, who originally filed their spousal sponsorship application without counsel, were refused with the Visa Officer determining that the marriage was not genuine and that the foreign national was criminally inadmissible to Canada.
Our office worked with the couple extensively to prepare them for giving testimony at their hearing. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Board Member provided oral reasons for allowing the appeal, citing the foreign national’s substantial efforts at rehabilitation. The couple are now awaiting final processing at the Visa Office, before being reunited in Canada.
