When you and your partner live apart, it is always difficult to prove the relationship. It is even more complicated if your partner lives in a country where same-sex marriage is not allowed and is forbidden.
A client came to us using our Paid Consultation Service to consult her case with Simon, our CEO. Her case had a history of declined visa applications. She and her partner stayed together, but there was no evidence to support their relationship as they had to hide their relationship from her partner's parents and friends.
After discussing with Simon, she was advised to go for Ministerial Intervention which was submitted early this year. Almost six months later, the request for the Associate Minister's intervention was successful, and her partner was granted a six-month visitor visa to stay with her, our client, in New Zealand.
