Common Mistakes That Common-Law Couples Make When Sponsoring Their Partner
The elaborate and intricate nature of the process of immigration can make it an intimidating affair. Moreover, if you are applying to sponsor a common-law partner, the process can prove to be tricky due to the emotional and financial stress it entails.
With so many rules and regulations to be followed, you need to ensure that you submit an impeccable application to increase your probability of success. However, at Ready4Canada Immigration Services Inc., we’ve come across many common-law couples who commit avoidable errors that compromise their chances of approval.
To help you steer clear of such mistakes and submit your best application, we’ve compiled a list of the most common mistakes that common-law couples make when sponsoring their partner and how to avoid them.
1. Unmarried couples living together who apply without living together for a full year
Unmarried couples living together often make the mistake of not waiting for one year to live together before they apply. Many also fail to send valid documentation that proves that they have cohabited for at least one year. It’s mandatory for couples to not only live together for a year but also be financially, socially, emotionally, and physically codependent.
2. Applying under the wrong category
People that are simply dating apply for sponsorship in the conjugal partner category. This category is for people who are physically not able to live together or get married for reasons beyond their control. They need to get married or live together for one year. Employment is not an excuse for not being able to be together.
