Gather the through details before “sponsoring” your loved ones.
On numerous occasions, I have received queries from people who wish to know about working in Canada through family class sponsorship. There are many cases in which the applications are rejected even though the applicant is legally married to a Canada-born. The main reason behind such rejection is its inability to convince the visa officer that the marriage was legitimate.
So, what actually is the family class sponsorship all about? And, how can you avail the facilities of the same? The whole concept is all about sponsoring a relative of a permanent resident of Canada. The law empowers a permanent resident of Canada to sponsor his spouse, common law partner, dependent partner, children who are dependent on him and also various other relatives. After the person sponsors any of these, the sponsored person himself or herself becomes a permanent resident of Canada.
The process of sponsorship has been divided into two segments. Under one segment, the sponsored person can be a spouse, conjugal or common law partner or dependent children. Whereas in the other segment, one can sponsor his or her other relative who are eligible.
Now, let us discus the requirements that needs to be fulfilled, if you wish to sponsor a spouse, common-law or conjugal partner, or dependent children. First of all, in order to sponsor any of these you must be either a citizen of Canada or a permanent resident of Canada. You also need be above eighteen years of age.
At the same time, you must either be a spouse, or a common law or conjugal partner. In case of sponsoring a child, you must accompany the child with you in Canada. It is worth noticing that you can apply as a sponsor even if the person you are sponsoring lives outside Canada, at that moment, provided all other requirements are met..
In the process of sponsoring any of them to become a permanent resident of Canada, you have to promise to support them financially at every moment. Therefore, it is essential to meet certain income requirements.
If you have sponsored any of your relatives to become permanent residents of Canada earlier and could not support them financially, then, chances are that you will not be allowed to sponsor another person.
Thus sponsorship is your commitment towards the government and the person you sponsor and thus, the decision of sponsoring someone must be made after thinking deeply over it.
