Successful Permanent Resident Application
A common-law couple contacted our office after having CBSA pay them a visit at their old address. After obtaining a copy of the immigration file, we learned that a poisonous pen letter was sent to immigration. The person concerned had no status in Canada at that point. We applied for permanent residence under the spousal category. During the processing of the application, the applicant was stopped by police, which prompted an interview at one of the CIC local offices. The officer was satisfied as to the genuineness of the union, despite a significant age gap and culture difference. DNA testing was also required. Further complications arose, the dependent’s child got married and was charged with a criminal offence. Despite many issues, the applicant successfully obtained a status of a permanent resident.
