This Week’s Success Story: Misrepresentation Finding in Spousal Sponsorship Application Overturned!

Posted by Fabiola Arevalo - Bellissimo Law Group PC

Our firm successfully represented an Applicant before the Immigration Appeal Division whose spousal sponsorship of his wife and three stepchildren was refused on the grounds of genuineness and misrepresentation. Our team provided extensive evidence and submissions to argue that the marriage was entered into pursuant to cultural and regional customs and that the family had communicated with and supported each other for over five years and through multiple refused sponsorship applications. Our team also argued for humanitarian and compassionate relief from the concurrent misrepresentation finding, submitting that the misrepresentation was an innocent error and, among other things, the family would experience great hardship should the sponsorship application be refused. Through this we were able to attain a positive result for our client.
