This Week’s Success Story: Detailed Submissions Grant Spousal Sponsorship Despite Criminal Inadmissibility Finding

Posted by Fabiola Arevalo - Bellissimo Law Group PC

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.
