Are you a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident and your significant other isn’t? Do you want to sponsor your significant other to join you in Canada? There are two types of applications: Inside or Outside Canada. However, they both belong to the Family Class Immigration. For this type of application, it is important to first determine the application category that will suit you best.
Some types of Sponsorship application within the family class include:
- Common law partner
- Conjugal Partner
- Other relatives
Each category comes with its own eligibility requirements. For Common law sponsorship, you must have lived together with your partner for at least one year and must be able to provide proof of this one-year cohabitation. Contact us to discuss your Spouse Sponsorship or Common Law application and go over the required documents for the application.
When deciding whether to apply from within Canada or from outside Canada, there are a couple of factors to consider. When you apply from outside Canada, you have the option of appealing a negative decision. The only option of appeal from inside Canada is by Judicial Review. For Outside Canada Sponsorship appeal application, new evidence can be provided in the appeal decision-making process. However, for the Inside Canada Judicial review process, no new information will be considered and only arguments made from the existing evidence will be taken into account. Get it right the first time by contacting us. We will go over and review all documents needed to increase your chances of approval!
