OTS Successful Removal Challenge Against Alleged Shame Marriage
Miss J, a Slovakian national, allegedly entered into a marriage of convenience. The arrangement was supposedly discovered by the Home Office following a rade. The Home Office attempted to remove her from the UK.
What is a Marriage of Convenience?
A marriage of convenience or a ‘sham marriage’ describes a marriage or civil partnership entered into for Immigration advantage by two people who are not a genuine couple. Non-EEA nationals sometimes enter into these arrangements in order to stay in the UK.
How we Helped
We investigated the matter through numerous enquiries and freedom of infomration disclosure by the Home Office. Following out legal representation at Appeal in the Immigration Tribunal Miss J was successfully allowed to remain in the UK and the decision to remove Miss J from the UK was quashed.
