We can help navigate the most complex family class sponsorship cases involving applicants who want to sponsor their dependent child, spouse, common-law partner, parent and grandparent to immigrate to Canada.
Spousal Sponsorship Cases
If you have a foreign national husband or wide that you’ve been legally married to, you can sponsor him/her for permanent residence in Canada. You will be required to prove that your marriage is recognized in Canada and the country in which it took place.
Common-Law Partner Sponsorship
A Canadian citizen or permanent resident may sponsor a common-law partner to immigrate to Canada. For a relationship to be recognized as a common-law union, you must have been living together for at least 12 months in a marriage-like relationship.
A Canadian citizen or permanent resident may sponsor their foreign parent to immigrate to Canada as a permanent residence. To qualify as a sponsor, the person must meet certain income level requirements and sign an undertaking showing commitment to supporting the parent financially for a given period of time.
If you have a dependent child who is not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, you may sponsor him/her to enter Canada as a permanent resident provided you prove that you can offer the financial support needed as soon as they step into Canadian soil.
As a permanent resident or citizen of Canada, your parents or grandparents can live with you in Canada for up to 2 years without having to renew their status if they get a super visa. To qualify for this visa, the applicant needs to have a written commitment from their sponsor showing that they will receive financial support from the family member who is a citizen or permanent resident of Canada. The parent or grandparent will also undergo some medical evaluations and show that they have bought Canadian medical coverage for at least one year.
