News / Poles and bogus marriage [6]

Last week "Rzeczpospolita" published an article on bogus marriages in Poland.It seems that a quarter off all marriages with non EU foreigners are bogus and are done to obtain EU status.The going price is about US $5000.

Is this just sensationalism,or is is it true?Don't these people have to live in Poland for 2 years with no divorce to keep their status?The paper claims some of them take off/divorce after a few months and still keep their residency permits.How could that be?

USA, Canada / Citizenship for Lwow [3]

Does anybody know, if it's possible to get Polish citizenship,or residency for a Canadian born in Lwow?I have ancestors who lived in tne Polish/Lithuanian state,but no supporting documents of any kind.Iknow that Romania gives citizenship to people who live in Moldova or Ukraine(former Romanian territory before WW11)and so do Estonia and Hungary.Any advice?

Thread attached on merging:
Lwow citizenship?

Is there any way for someone born and raised in Lwow and now living in Canada to get Polish citizenship/permanent residency?My family used to live in the Polish/Lithuanian state,but Ihave no supporting documents.I know,Romania and Estonia give passports to people residing on their pre WW11 teritories.can this be done in Poland?(with a good Lawyer)
