Thousands of people qualify to enter Canada on a permanent basis every single year, why not you too? Spousal sponsorship allows a spouse or partner to sponsor their spouse, common-law partner and conjugal partner to become a permanent resident of Canada so long as eligibility requirements can be met.
Once the individual is sponsored and immigrated to Canada, he or she would become a permanent resident. A permanent resident is able to live, study and work in Canada. Depending on the circumstances, the sponsored person may already be in Canada when an application for spousal sponsorship is lodged.
It should be added, that the process of obtaining such a status requires a great deal of experience and is certainly not recommended doing without the aid of a legal professional. A simple misplaced bit of information or incorrectly submitted document would undoubtedly result in a denial of status. Prompting the applicant to have to go through the lengthy and costly process all over again.
Who is a Canadian Spousal Sponsorship Program for?
The Canadian Spousal Sponsorship Program is for:
- Common-law partners
- Conjugal partners
- Same-sex couples
The minimum age requirement under this program to be in such a relationship under which a sponsorship application can be lodged is 16. As a sponsor, you must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. Also as a sponsor, you must be at least 18 years of age and residing in Canada.
What to ask a licensed Canadian immigration professional about the Canadian Spousal Sponsorship Program?
Not all immigration professionals possess the needed experience. Often we’ve noticed that Canadian Spousal Sponsorship applications are rejected because the right questions were not discussed.
Here are some very important questions you want to ask any person you are planning on hiring to help you with your Canadian Spousal Sponsorship application:
- How long are you responsible to support the individual that you are sponsoring in Canada along with what are the requirements of support?
- After how long does your spouse, common-law partner, or conjugal partner received Canadian citizenship?
- Can my out of status spouse be sponsored in Canada?
- What are the requirements to sponsor an individual?
The immigration professional should have no problems answer those important questions for you.
