Not Inadmissible for Misrepresentation
Our office was retained to assist a woman accused of having misrepresented herself to Immigration authorities. She had sought to extend her temporary resident visa because she was being sponsored to Canada by her husband, yet later the husband advised Immigration authorities that their relationship was never genuine and that they had not cohabited. According to Immigration, they would never have issued the visa extension, had they known this information.
Over the length of a full-day hearing, we managed to establish that it was the husband not our client, who had misrepresented information to the Immigration authorities. This result required a great deal of documentary evidence, witness preparation, and oral argument. Our client’s record with Immigration is clean and she will not be issued an exclusion order barring her return to Canada.
