Common Law Sponsorship Application Video

Are you looking into sponsoring your common law partner to Canada? Watch our Family Class Sponsorship for Common Law Partners video on what steps you need to take to submit a successful sponsorship application to immigration Canada. 

Common Law Sponsorship Application

When submitting a Common-Law Sponsorship application or Spousal application the documents are very similar. The important part with a Common-Law Sponsorship application is that you would have to demonstrate 12 consecutive months of residing together in a conjugal relationship. This is very important to prove you have been living together when it comes to submitting a Common-Law Sponsorship application. Common-Law Sponsorships are just as valid as spousal ones, but often require more documentation to prove that the relationship is genuine. The best way to prove an ongoing common-law relationship is to provide joint documentation (that is, documentation containing both the sponsor’s and the applicant’s names). These documents could be: joint bank accounts, joint residential leases, joint utility bills, joint ownership documents, joint insurance policies, etc.

So simply residing together is not enough this does not mean your relationship is not serious but simply you relationship does not qualify under the Common-Law definition as your relationship is just seen as boyfriend and girlfriend when it comes to immigration. So basically you have to demonstrate your relationship is just as serious as spousal sponsorships without having to obtain the marriage certificate because you either don’t belief in marriage certificate or are just not at that stage.

When it comes to demonstrating the genuineness in the relationship you have to provide ample documents just as spousal applications. So simple having few pictures and few phone logs is not sufficient. Some documents you may want to include to prove your relationship include:

  • Lease agreements with both names on it- it shows that you cohabitated

  • Mortgages

  • Photos

  • Joint bank accounts

  • Insurance policies

  • Phone logs

  • Skype chats

  • Gifts

  • Letter exchanged

  • Shared bills

  • common law declaration and that has to be signed and notarised

    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.

    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.

    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.
