my wife, who is a german national applied for UK family permit for her mother(living alone in india)! the first one was rejected in 2009, the reason because they couldn't trace any of the submitted documents (such as my wife's birth certificate and her mother's marriage certificate)! The reason stated on the letter "the applicant is not related blood, adoption or in any way" so the embassy wasn't happy with the evidence. After that we tried to identify the mistakes with the documents. Then we found out that my wife's mother marriage certificate was genuine but the information were wrong, which is difficult to change now as my wife's father is no longer living.
It's been rejected because they want to see the that my mother in law is fully supported by my wife, where we don't have some of the receipt of proof sending money. I thought it's just six months proof you have to submit. What is the minimum proof you have to submit.
The marriage certificate of my mother-in-law, it was a forced marriage where her parents gave her age 21, but in reality she was only 20. This made the british consulate to doubt and said the documents are not genuine, because it didn't match my wife's birth certificate.
After a long conversation with british high commission, my wife's and my mother-in-law did a DNA test, where it's acceptable in case that you are unable to provide more evidence of your relationship.
My wife submitted a new application form with DNA test, and all the other documents, which been submitted before. But this time they rejected as well. Now we don't have choice how to move on, because when they don't accept the DNA test, there is nothing you can provide to proof the relationship.
What could we do in this situation? can we arrange a lawyer so he can move the case?
BTW my wife is working full time and living in UK for more than 5 years now.
Please help, we are totally confused now. We don't understand why keep rejecting the application, even with the DNA test. The Application been made in india.
