Permanent Residence Granted Despite Inadmissibility
Our office was approached by a couple to assist with filing an Application for Permanent Residence supported by an Application to Sponsor Under the In Canada Spouse or Common-Law Partner Class (or “Spousal Sponsorship Application”). The couple were concerned as the Applicant did not have valid status in Canada and had been here for many years without valid status, making it difficult to collect the required evidence. Despite these challenges, the couple worked very hard to provide as much evidence as possible in support of their application.
Thanks to the public policy in place pertaining to spousal sponsorship applications, our client was found eligible as a member of the spouse/common-law partner in Canada class despite lacking valid status. Not long after, and much to our joy, the application was approved, and our client was finally able to confirm their status as a permanent residence of Canada online! We are very happy we were able to assist in achieving this wonderful result, and wish our clients all the best.
