Immigration Lawyer Saskatoon

Immigration Lawyer Saskatoon - The intention of the class of immigration known as the "Family Class" is to be able to help make sure that families are reunited. Our company's Immigration Law practitioners can assist you in bringing your family together. We help with the completion and submission of documents and forms to the Immigration authorities. Our objective is to be able to help you through the whole immigration procedure.

Under the Family Class are the following family members: spouse, conjugal partner, common-law partner, adopted child, dependent child, grandparent, parent, or an orphaned family member below 18 years of age who is the sponsor's brother or sister, niece, nephew, adopted child or grandchild. Within this country, to be able to bring a family together a sponsor is necessary. The sponsor should be at least eighteen years of age and a citizen of this country or a permanent resident residing here. The sponsor has to file a sponsorship application to Citizenship and Immigration. Depending on the kind of relationship between the sponsor and the family member, a different set of forms, requirements, and supporting papers are required.

Sponsorship applications are typically processed within 8 weeks starting from the date of submission to the Citizenship and Immigration authorities, assuming that all the required forms are accomplished correctly, and all supporting documents and information are included.

Spouses need to be at least 16 years old and be legally married to the sponsor by the civil authorities of a nation. The marriage is considered to be valid in Canada, if the marriage is legal within the nation where it happened. A marriage certificate, provided by the civil authorities of the country where the marriage occurred, is required so as to prove that the sponsor and spouse are officially married. A divorce certificate issued by a Court should be given in situations where one of the parties was formerly married.

A common-law partner should have lived along with the sponsor in a conjugal relationship for a particular time. A common-law relationship starts on the day a couple opts to physically share a house. In a common-law relationship, there is no document to prove that a couple is residing together. Nonetheless, there are documents which may help to prove the existence of a common-law relationship, like for instance joint bank accounts and credit cards, lease or property agreements in both names, insurance policies and documents showing the same address.

A dependent child under the Family Class, is a dependent child is either a biological child or adopted child under the age of 22. This particular child must not have ever been in a common-law relationship or married and was financially supported by the parent. The daughter or son could be over twenty two years of age if he or she is not capable, due to a mental or physical condition, so as to support her or himself.

The relationship between the sponsored person and the sponsor who is a grandparent, parent, or an orphaned family member below 18 years of age who is the sponsor's sister or brother, niece, nephew, adopted child or grandchild, should be proven through documents issued by civil authorities.

Saskatoon has been an inhabited area for roughly 6,000 years, and it was not until the summer of 1883 that the first settlers started to arrive and reside within the area.
