Edmonton Immigration Lawyer Can Help On Spousal Sponsorship
A grant of spousal sponsorship gives the spouse the authority to sponsor their spouse or partner to become a permanent resident in Canada. There are eligibility requirements. Hiring an experienced immigration lawyer can greatly increase your likelihood of success.
Once the application for spousal sponsorship is approved, your spouse will eventually become a permanent resident. Permanent residency gives you the right to live, work, and study in Canada. Depending on the situation it might be better to make the application while the spouse is in Canada, or not in Canada.
Spousal sponsorship can be a detailed and complicated matter. Talk to a lawyer. Misplaced or incorrect information in your documents can result in a failed application and denial of status.
Can I Become Eligible For The Canadian Spousal Sponsorship Program?
Probably, as long as you fall into one of the following categories for a Canadian resident:
- common-law partner
- conjugal partner
- same-sex couple
If you are a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, you can sponsor:
- your spouse (inside or outside of Canada)
- your common-law or conjugal partner (inside or outside of Canada)
- your dependent children
What Can A Lawyer Tell Me?
Your immigration lawyer should provide you with a great deal of information and be able to answer all the questions you have about spousal sponsorship. For instance:
- How long is the sponsorship process? How long will you actually be the person’s sponsor? What are the requirements and obligations?
- After how long will your spouse, common-law partner, or conjugal partner, be able to attain Canadian citizenship?
- Can an out of country spouse be sponsored?
- What do I need to do to sponsor a person?
- What about health care?
