Do you wish to sponsor your loved one to Canada and do not know where to turn? Immigration law is becoming increasingly complex so it is essential that you get the help you need in order to ensure that the process will go smoothly.
Sponsorship Applications involve preparing the correct forms, making sure that the application is submitted to the right office and that it is processed properly. Also in case the government wants more information, you have to know how to respond and where to send the information.
For Canada, sponsorship applications can be made by married couples, same sex, common law or conjugal partners. Parents and Grandparents for now, cannot be sponsored. They have to go the Super Visa route. Each type of application has its own requirements and supporting documents so it is important that you know what is needed in advance of applying for the visa.
A good immigration lawyer will be able to guide you through the process from start to finish. Your immigration lawyer should be able to tell you what to expect, how much it will cost, what risks are associated with the sponsorship application etc.
Your lawyer is really your representative and should act that way. He or she should always be there to answer your questions in a timely manner as well. Sponsorship is an emotional time for all involved and your lawyer should have a good bed-side manner in addition to being just a good lawyer.
You can ask around for a good lawyer from friends and family if you know one. You can search online but if you do make sure you read the reviews about that lawyer and law firm. The lawyer should be licensed and have a lot of experience in immigration law. At our firm that is all we do.
