Spousal Sponsorship Appeal at the Immigration Appeal Division
Last week we represented our client at the Immigration Appeal Division where he appealed the refusal of his spousal sponsorship application. The Immigration Officer at the visa office overseas had concluded that our client’s marriage was not legally valid and not genuine. In preparation for the hearing, we helped our client gather strong evidence to refute these findings, and we also worked with both our client in Canada and his wife overseas to prepare for oral testimony at the hearing. After considering all of the evidence on appeal, the Hearings Officer consented that the appeal should be allowed, and the deciding Member agreed. This is a fantastic resolution for our client, who can now be reunited with his wife in Canada.
