How do I sponsor my spouse to come to Canada
Province/Territory relating to question: Alberta
Looked at the Government web site. And it is a little confusing.
The way this works is that the sponsorship application and the permanent resident application go in together. Once you are approved as a sponsor your spouse's application will be processed.
Your spouse will need to undergo medical, background and criminal checks.
Here is the link to the webpage that has all the information and forms: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/sponsor/spouse.asp
Does that help?
Does thisprocess require aawyer??
You can use a lawyer and many do because it's easier but it will cost you about $2500.
So if you can afford it for sure do it.
If not you can manage on your own.
Just take the time to do it correct and do not leave anything out that is needed as they will send the whole thing back.
Thank you for your help!
Have a great weekend:-)
