Common Law Sponsorship: Supporting Documents

Posted in Common-law Sponsorship Canada

Personal statements are very important; however just because something is written down does not make it true. Where possible, you will need to provide evidence of the statements you make in your application forms and personal statement.  For example, if you say that you have resided together since July 18, 2001, provide documentation that will show this. 

We understand that some of the events you refer to may have happened many years ago and you may not have most of the documents from them. If you are having trouble collecting a certain document and want to know if it is required, please contact us as this is crucial part of your application.

Document you should include if you have them:

  1. Include letters of reference from friends and family members describing the genuineness of your relationship. These letters can talk about how long the reference has known you and your partner and the positive aspects of your relationship the reference has noticed. These letters should be as detailed as possible (i.e. Instead of saying, "I've known Joan and Mike for a long time," try "I've known Joan since we were in high school together in 1992 and she introduced me to Mike at a party at their home in Seattle, Washington on March 5, 1999.") Letters should also be signed by the person who wrote them and include contact information.
  2. Any documents demonstrating your financial ties to your partner including: shared household bills, records of gifts or financial support, wills or insurance policies with your partner as the beneficiary, a lease agreement/mortgage agreement/deed with both your names.

The more supporting evidence you can provide, the better. Do not discount anything. An officer will be assessing this information and it stands to reason that the more documentary evidence you can provide to support the gaminess of your relationship, the more accurate that statement becomes.

Items like gift receipts, travel itineraries, tickets to events, etc. Anything you have done together will be helpful in demonstrating this key factor.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.
