JCSER's legal unit was recently able to obtain a court decision in one of the most complicated family reunification cases: the reunification of the entire family members. The ID cards have been restored to the family members after their right to residency [residency permits] had been withdrawn.

It should be noted that Mr. al-Jinini approached the Center several years ago seeking legal assistance with regard to the reunification of the family members and the restoration of the ID cards.

After refusing the Center's frequent requests to restore the ID card, the legal unit lodged in 2004 a legal case to the Israeli Central Court, forcing the Israeli Interior Ministry to restore Mr. al-Jinini's ID card, which was withdrawn in 1998. Before the court session, the Interior Ministry approved the Center's request to restore the ID card. With this, al-Jinini's ID card was restored, and the ID cards of his two daughters, who were registered in their father's ID card. The ID cards of the two daughters were withdrawn together with their father.

In 2005, Mr. Al-Jinini applied for family reunification for the remaining five children in Jordan. The Center succeeded in obtaining entry permits for two children, while the Interior Ministry refused to grant entry permits for the remaining three children.

In the wake of the Interior Ministry's refusal to grant entry permits for the remaining three children, the Center lodged a legal case in 2006 to the Israeli Central Court, forcing the Interior Ministry to approve the family reunification by granting entry permits to the remaining three children in Jordan.

In March 2007, the Interior Ministry called all the family members to investigate their place of residence. In April 2007, it agreed to grant temporary ID cards for two of his children, while rejected the family reunification applications for the remaining children, claiming that they live in Jordan, not in Jerusalem.

Once again, the Center was forced to lodge a legal case to the Israeli Central Court, forcing the Interior Ministry to approve the family reunification application of the children who recently entered the country from Jordan.

In the case, the Center confirmed that the children's inability to live in the country was due to the Interior Ministry's refusal of their requests two years ago to enter the country, not because they do not want to live here. It should be noted that the Israeli embassy in Jordan refused three years ago the entry of Mr. al-Jinini's children: Najla, Mahmoud and Mohammed, under the pretext they turned 14 years of age and, therefore, are denied access to Israel.

In a lengthy decision, the Central Court approved the Center's claim and forced the Interior Ministry to grant a two-year residency permit for the two children, and a permanent residency permit provided that they live in the country during the two years' period.

According to the court decision, children under the age of 18 years are allowed to enter the country from Jordan, if the reason is to join one of the parents
