Why was Your Sponsorship Application Refused

Avoid the Refusal of Your Application

As you may know, you have various options to sponsor a family member to Canada. However, in order to ensure foreigners, who are immigrating to Canada, do not possess any risks to Canadian citizens and permanent residents, the Canadian government has set many strict rules to regulate potential immigrants. If you fail to meet the requirements set by the Canadian government, your application will very likely be refused. In this blog, you will learn relevant information about reasons for your application refusal.

Simply being a Canadian citizen or a Canadian permanent resident does not automatically make you an eligible sponsor. In order to be an eligible sponsor, you must also fulfill the other requirements.

Qualify as a Common-Law Partner to Canada

Common-law partnerships are unique as the couple is not married; however, they do cohabitate in a marriage-like commitment. Recognizing these types of partnerships are essential in Canadian Immigration and properly assessing them can be quite challenging since they are not in actual marriage. As a result, common-law couples must provide sufficient supporting documentation and information in order to prove the genuineness of their relationship to Canadian Immigration when applying for common-law sponsorship. In this blog, you will learn about how to qualify as a common-law partner in the eyes of Canadian Immigration and other important information pertaining to common-law sponsorships.

Family reunification is a high priority for Canadian Immigration and thus they diligently recognize and assess common-law sponsorships.

As a result, Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada have the ability to sponsor their common-law partners to Canada for permanent residency. However, before they can sponsor their common-law partner, they must first ensure that they qualify as a common-law partnership or union.

    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!

    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.

    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.
