Basics of Conjugal Sponsorship

Conjugal Sponsorship in Canada

If you would like to reunite with your Conjugal partner in Canada, then it is best to understand what a Conjugal sponsorship entails before attempting to submit your application. If you are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada, you may be eligible to sponsor your Conjugal partner to Canada for permanent residency. Much like any other immigration application, in order to qualify for a conjugal sponsorship, there are specific eligibility requirements that must be met by the sponsor as well as the sponsored Conjugal partner. Therefore, in this article, I will address the most important information you should know about Conjugal sponsorships in Canada.

What is a Conjugal Sponsorship

According to Canadian Immigration, a Conjugal partnership is defined as an individual who has been in a marriage-like commitment with a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada for a minimum of one year but who currently lives outside of Canada. Additionally, they are unable to live with their partner due to special circumstances. These special circumstances often include separation due to war, persecution and/or other legal barriers that prevent these partners from living together.

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.

What is a Conjugal Partner?

    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.

    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.

    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.
