Permanent residence permit due to children
Permanent residence permit was granted to our client in the light of Berrehab v. The Netherlands from 1988-05-28 where the refusal to renew a father’s residence permit for divorce and instead expel him was deemed to be a restriction in Article 8 of the ECHR, the right to family life (with the daughter).
Interesting that a judgment from 1988 gives guidance in 2017.
Our client did not have to leave Sweden to be granted a permanent residence permit, because such a scheme was deemed unfair.
