Successful Sponsorship Application Despite Misrepresentation Concerns in the Past
Our client came to us to assist with spousal sponsorship when the representative they initially retained discovered that the applicant had previously provided incorrect information on their earlier applications to Canada. With this complication and significant concerns that the applicant may be found inadmissible for misrepresentation, the representative referred this couple to our office.
We diligently and thoroughly worked with our client to ensure that the information on the sponsorship application was complete and accurate, and that the genuineness of the relationship was well documented. Given the misrepresentation concerns, we also made a request for an exemption from potential inadmissibility finding based on humanitarian and compassionate considerations, including the applicant’s establishment in Canada, the hardship he would face if forced to return to his country of citizenship, and the best interests of his minor child. We are pleased to report that the applicant was not found inadmissible, and the sponsorship application was approved. We are very happy we were able to assist this couple and keep the family together, in Canada!
