It has been found that most of the permanent resident card holders are those who had come under the spousal sponsorship scheme. Such people passed the criteria of living with the sponsor for 2 years or more. But in case, their relationship faces threats during their stay with the sponsor or improper immigration papers, then chances are that, their permanent visa may not get processed further, and they might have to leave the country. These take place commonly in cases of marriage failures.
