We are very pleased for our client who received a positive decision in his application or his elderly dependent parents to join him in the State.  A UK national, our client has been working in the State for a number of years.  He was able to provide evidence to show that both parents in India were dependent on him.   Such applications have always proven difficult to make and the majority of clients come to us to challenge negative decisions they receive on their applications for family members to join them where they must show proof of dependency.  It is worth noting that the ECJ has determined that dependency includes both financial and emotional dependency and accordingly supporting documentation and evidence to document both types of dependency should be considered.
