Customer Question
Well, first of all...

Well, first of all I can't afford a lawyer, but I guess I can go to the courts to find out my question. If you are willing to give me an answer that would be great. I am a person with disabilities and took care of my wife for seven years, taught her how to speak, read, spell, write and all of the rest of the things that you teach a child. But now she has diminished too far and now lives in a home. I feel young and have been talking with a lady from Turkey for the last two years and she would like to move here and get married. Is that possible? Thank you.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in Turkish family court?

No, don't know how to.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about this yet?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I guess, I would like to know what she needs to get into Canada.

You can sponsor this woman as your spouse if you can marry her.

So you can go somewhere and meet her and get married or have her apply for a visitor's visa.

Once you are married you can sponsor your spouse for permanent residency status.

The way this works is you apply to be a sponsor and she applies for permanent residency status. The two applications go in at the same time.

It will take about a year for the application to be processed.

Here is a link to the information that you will need:

I am a very poor man who is disabled after taking care of my brain injured wife for about seven years and Debra was the nicest person with understanding my curcumstances and very fast in finding exactly what I needed to know. Thank you and God Bless you!

Hi Debra,
I just wanted to thank you so very much, you probably get this all the time, but I feel shamed but I still want love and to give love and it is not so easy to do anymore. Your advise was so appreciated I can't tell you how much. I have had to use Legal Aid before and was not very proud of that either, but you did not make me feel that way. Hopefully(or not) if I ever need to hire a lawyer it would definitely be you. I thank you and your parents for having you.

That's very kind.

But you never clicked on the stars at the top of the page so the site hasn't seen the rating yet which means I've not yet been paid so please be sure to o that now.

Thanks again.
