Default Dependent Children - please help

Please help me with the following situation.

My wife intends to sponsor her parents and sister. The sister will
turn 22 three months from now. Her sister dropped out from secondary
school in 2001 and does not work.

(1) Will sister still qualify as dependent during visa interview if
the application is filed now? I am assuming processing time will take
more than three months.

(2) If her sister right now goes back to secondary school (NOT
post-secondary)will she still qualify as a dependent during the time
of visa interview?

(3) If her sister right now starts attending a vocational school
(which does not require high school completion)will she still qualify
as a dependent during the time of visa interview?

Thanks in advance for the help,

- Moin

She must be a full time student finacially suported by her prarents when she
applies for PR and when she is issued visa. Theyw il look at ehr total
educational record and may view her education as a sham.

Good Luck

Thanks for the reply Mr. Metcalfe

I need a clarification though. Does full time studentship of 22+
dependent must be in a POST-SECONDARY institution i.e. college ? What
if she is still full time in secondary school? Secondary schools in
many countries do fail students and one cannot move to next grade
automatically. In this particular case the applicant will be just
under 22 at the time of application & over 22 at the time of approval.
Anyone?

There has been a number of Federal Court cases where the "student" has been
refused a visa as a dependent as they have not made any progress in their
schooling. In other words they have registered and never passed a course.
I would think a 22 in Secondary school is going to meet the same fate.
