Right of Residence granted after divorce from EEA national

Due to the outstanding work of Oksana Demyanchuk, Solomiya Boyar, and Michael Carter, yet another client of Sterling Law was successful in their appeal at the First-tier Tribunal.

The client was previously married to an EEA national before divorcing. Accordingly, the client applied for a Residence Card as confirmation that they had retained their right of residence following the divorce by themselves. However, this application was refused. The client came to Sterling Law to seek assistance with the appeal.

The Home Office had refused the initial application. This was done on the basis that the Applicant has failed to evidence that his ex-wife was working when they divorced, and that he had been working since the divorce. 

Due to the through preparation of the bundles by Oksana Demyanchuk and her team, the appeal was successful. The Judge found that the evidence provided by Sterling Law showed that the client had in fact been working since the date of divorce. The Judge also found that the client’s ex-wife had been exercising Treaty rights at the time of the divorce, based upon the evidence provided. 

Accordingly, the Judge allowed the appeal, asserting that the Appellant is entitled to be issued with a Residence Card confirmation that they have retained their right to residence following their divorce. 

This excellent result means that the clients will now be issued a Residence Card due to the hard work and dedication of Oksana Demyanchuk and her team.
