Your Uncle's situation is complicated. I recommend putting together as much evidence as they can to prove they are married, then refile the paperwork.

Thanks for the answer... What could be the most convincing proof in this case?


I agree with my colleague.

Your question is too complex and case specific for it to be answered meaningfully on Avvo.

You need to retain an experienced immigration lawyer, whether myself or one of my colleagues, to review all the facts and handle the case.
