Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Paperwork for what?
But are you asking about her immigrating to the US or you to Canada?
In terms of getting married, you just have to apply for a marriage licence in the city hall in the city where you are going to get married. There is no residency requirement.
Once you are married your spouse can sponsor you.The way this works is that the sponsorship application and the permanent resident application go in together. Once your spouse is approved as a sponsor you application will be processed.You 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
Yes you can live in Canada while the application is going on. It becomes a bit complicated so you should consult with a local immigration lawyer.
You are very welcome. And congratulations!
