“Anita” had applied for residence in Sweden because of her marriage to a man with Swedish citizenship. The application was denied by the Swedish Migration Board and the case was therefore appealed to the Administrative Court in Göteborg.
The reason for the Migration Board’s rejection was that Anita had said that the husband’s cousin was his “brother”, and amid suspicions that the husband previously had received his status in Sweden through a fake marriage etc.
VS Jurist managed to convince the Administrative Court that the circumnstances which had been the basis of the Migration Board’s decision were misjudged.
Johan Olehäll, legal counsel at VS Jurist, comments:
– We are glad that the court considered the evidence we filed that clearly showed that our client had the right to be granted residence in Sweden. The court’s decision was both humane and legally correct.
(Anita is not the client’s real name.)
