Dependents and the LICO Video

Posted in Family Class Sponsorship Videos

Dependents and the LICO Video

If you are filing a Spousal Sponsorship Application and your dependent has a dependent of their own then you would need to meet the  Low Income Cut-Off (LICO) requirements. For example, if your sponsoring your wife and your wife's child has a child of their own then you need to meet the LICO requirements. When submitting a spousal application and your spouse is not employed perhaps they are studying or whatever the reason may be the sponsor does not need to meet LICO requirements. The undertaking is just to show that you have the intensions or promise to provide for the basic needs for the person you are sponsoring (spouse, parent, child). The purpose of the undertaking is to avoid the person you are sponsoring to be a financial burden on Canadian society. Canada wants to ensure the person you are sponsoring is a productive member of the society and does not rely on social assistance from the government. Should the sponsored individual go on social assistance during the time of your undertaking then as the sponsor you would have to pay back the government the amount that is owed. Depending on who you are sponsoring the undertaking varies. When sponsoring a spouse you are responsible for them for three years while sponsoring a parent you are responsible for them for 20 years. Remember the time varies and can change at any time please see CIC website for latest update information.

If you like to sponsor your loved one to Canada but are not sure if you are eligible to apply or what requirements you need to meet as the sponsor or applicant then contact us today. We will be more than happy to assist.

    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.
