IMMIGRATION LAW ENQUIRIES


Sham Marriage


"A fraudulent practice used by some illegal immigrants, defined in section 24(5) of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 as follows: “Sham marriage” means a marri age (whether or not void)- a. entered into between a person (“A”) who is neither a British national nor a national of an EEA State other than the United Kingdom and another person (whether or not such a person or such a national) and b. entered into by A for the purpose of avoiding the effect of one or more provisions of United Kingdom immigration law or the immigration rules.” See “European Economic Area” above for the definition of EEA. “A” still has to obtain permission to stay under the Immigration Rules applicable to marriage, which include showing that the parties have met and intend to live together permanently as man and wife, that they have adequate accommodation for themselves and any dependants and will be able to maintain themselves ad any dependants without recourse to public funds."
