Family-sponsored immigration is the primary way in which families come together from different parts of the world. Family unity is one of the values of Canada as a country and the Canadian government has designed the immigration law to reflect the high priority they place on family unification.
If you want to process immigration for any of your family members, then you need a competent spousal sponsorship lawyer in Toronto to handle your family-sponsored immigration. This is because of the technicalities involved in family immigration.
At AKM Law, we have years of experience in providing expert immigration legal help in all types of sponsorships, including complex cases of inadmissibility due to criminality, removal orders, bankruptcy, and so on.
AKM Law provides various family-sponsored immigration services, so let’s take a look at these services.
You can sponsor your spouse, common-law, or conjugal partner to become a Canadian permanent resident. You may sponsor your spouse regardless of whether the spouse is currently living inside or outside of Canada. Our comprehensive applications never result in an immigration interview, which can cause arbitrary refusals. If you need more information on spousal sponsorship click here.
Spousal sponsorship refusals
If your spousal sponsorship application has been refused you may have a right to appeal the decision to the Immigration Appeal Division, in which case you must appeal within 30 days of the refusal. If the application was refused based on inadmissibility then you will need to appeal at the Federal Court of Canada. You can get more information by clicking here.
