How to Sponsor Your Common-Law Partner

In Canada, family unification is extremely important and is a fundamental aspect of life, as well as the Canadian Immigration System. Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada have the opportunity to sponsor members of the Family Class, in this case their common-law partner, for permanent residence in Canada. In order to sponsor your common-law partner, you must qualify as a common-law union.

In order to begin the process of sponsoring your common-law partner, you must first determine whether you are eligible to sponsor. There are simple eligibility requirements you must abide by in order to do so, which include things such as, being a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada, being at least 18 years old, living in Canada or showing an intent to live in Canada once the application is approved, and providing evidence that you have sufficient income to support your common-law partner once they arrive in Canada.

Additionally, in common-law relationships, you must prove that you have been cohabitating for at least one year, continuously. You must show that you have combined affairs and that you share a household together. This is an extremely important aspect of the common-law partner sponsorship, as if you cannot prove this, they may refuse your application. It is also extremely essential to provide proof of the genuineness of your relationship. The Immigration officer must obverse and recognize sufficient evidence proving that the two partners indeed are in a "marriage-like" commitment.

    I got my visitors visa thanks to Shabnam. I just want to thank her and all the team for her hard work. They all did a very good job.

    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!

    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.

    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.
