Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
Now that you are married you can sponsor your spouse.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.He will need to undergo medical, background and criminal checks.It will take about 9 months - 1 year if you are applying from outside of Canada and likely well over a year if you are applying from within Canada.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 as a starting point?
