Two Year Battle with IAD; Spousal Sponsorship Appeal Success
Our client retained our services after his application to sponsor his wife had been refused by an overseas visa office. Our office appealed this decision to the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD), and began to prepare him for his hearing. This was a complex appeal, involving past criminal charges, a refugee claim, a proxy marriage, and a couple who had never met in person. Both the genuineness of their relationship and the legality of their marriage were in dispute before the IAD.
After five volumes of disclosure, four hearing dates, hours of testimony, and both oral and written argument, our client has succeeded in his appeal. His wife’s application for permanent residence will now be processed and she should be joining him in Canada soon.
