IMMIGRATION/ MARRIAGE: Adetola v First-Tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) and Secretary of State for the Home Department [2010] EWHC 3197 (Admin)

(Administrative Court; HHJ SP Grenfell; 9 December 2010)

An immigrant had a marriage certificate to evidence his marriage to an EEA national. The marriage certificate was rejected by an immigration tribunal as evidence of marriage. There were no finding that the marriage was one of convenience. The marriage had taken place in a Church of England church.

Held that immigration judges should be slow to find that a marriage solemnised in the Church of England was a sham marriage, and should accept the certificate of marriage as proof, subject to scrutiny of certificate to ensure that it was a genuine document.
