Child Sponsorship Application – Case Study

Type of Case: Canadian Child Sponsorship Application

The applicant is a citizen of Russia whose parent is a citizen of Canada. The applicant has been residing in Canada for approximately 3-4 years, has established himself in the country and is currently studying at a recognized university in Canada. His father, who currently lives abroad, sponsored him in an effort to allow him the opportunities in Canada that he would not receive in his home country.

 How the Firm Helped with this Canadian Child Sponsorship Application:

After preparing the proper application forms and guiding the client with respect to the documentation required, we faced the obstacle of his father residing overseas. An officer processing the application was not convinced that his father would return to Canada and therefore would not be able to undertake the sponsorship agreement.

If it was not for the quick thinking of the firm in helping the client provide documents that demonstrated the contrary, it is possible the application would have been refused and the applicant could have potentially been required to leave Canada.


The firm was successful in acquiring the applicant’s permanent resident status.


Our client had to say this once we were able to help them get an approval on their sponsorship visa.

Thank you very much… this is excellent news. I am very happy.
