Detailed Submissions Grant Spousal Sponsorship Despite Criminal Inadmissibility Finding
We recently worked on a Spousal Sponsorship application for a family that had been living overseas for a number of years. We assisted them in presenting the sponsor’s re-settlement plan, together with the family’s settlement plan, as well as established the spousal relationship. In addition, the applicant was criminally inadmissible for a matter dating back quite some time that did not have a direct criminal equivalence in Canada. With careful and detailed submissions advocating for rehabilitation, the application was recently successful and the family members granted permanent residence to facilitate their move to Canada.
Sponsorship Granted Despite Criminal Inadmissibility Finding
We assisted a person who was being sponsored to Canada under Common-Law Spouse Class. After the application was submitted, the applicant was charged and subsequently convicted of a criminal offence in Canada. The applicant was therefore facing a refusal due to criminal inadmissibility. We were pleased to learn that after our extensive submissions, IRCC granted status to the applicant under humanitarian and compassionate grounds!
