Hello, LONG STORY ALERT! This is my cousin sister’s story and we are trying to find out if my cousin could apply for a visitor visa. So that, she can somehow try to get in touch with her Canadian husband and proceed further to getting legally separated/divorced. My cousin got married in March 2017. Her husband and mother in law visited India in December 2016 and at that time, my cousin got engaged to this canadian guy. Both of them (mother & son) visited again in March 2017 when my cousin got married. My cousin’s husband never talked to her over the phone/email prior to the wedding and after wedding. Her husband and mother in law returned back to Canada in April 2017. As far as we are aware, they haven’t visited India since then. My cousin’s mother in law used to call my cousin and torture her after the marriage. She kept harrassing my cousin to get some sort of medical tests done to prove that she was virgin before marriage. She made my cousin talk to a random guy but not to her husband. We still haven’t been able to figure out on why she made my cousin marry her son but forced her to talk to and meet some other guy. When my cousin refused to talk to this random guy & meet him. Her mother in law started abusing her and started defaming her among family and friends. She started spreading stories or rumours about my cousin’s bad character to cover her own tracks. My cousin was very depressed and even wanted to commit suicide. She has finally gained some strength. She went through a huge mental breakdown over the period of year and a half. She has started going to work again. She wants to move on. She also wants to take legal action against her husband & mother in law. She doesn’t trust Indian justice system because her mother in law has contacts with several higher authorities & gangsters in India. There is a good chance that she can use bribery to get everything in her favour. In addition, my cousin doesn’t have a lot of information regarding her husband & mother in law. She only knows their address in Canada and that’s about it. I live in a different province and I’ll be happy to invite my cousin to come over here and visit me as well as prepare for any legal actions she wants to take against her husband and mother in law. I’ll support her for accommodation, living expenses and everything. Is there any way she could apply for visitor visa and mention in the letter of explanation the whole situation? Her husband has never contact her before and after the marriage. This marriage has no meaning. My cousin definitely wants to gain her respect back that her mother in law ruined. Please advise if I invite her to visit Canada and take legal action against her husband from within Canada. Would she be able to apply even though her canadian husband is not supporting her visit? My cousin only has a marriage certificate to produce when she applies for the visa. She has no other ID proofs related to her husband and mother in law. She hasn’t started any legal proceedings in india because she is afraid that her mother in law could try to get gangsters involved which could harm her and our family. Please guide us. We would appreciate any advise we receive in this matter. Thanks.
