Frequently Asked Questions About Spousal Sponsorship

When it comes to navigating spousal sponsorship, it’s normal to have questions. We believe that being informed is a critical part of the process and endeavour to ensure that our clients feel educated and empowered.

At Contreras Law, we pride ourselves on taking the time to connect with our clients. We are here to answer your questions and provide you with clear, practical information about the spousal sponsorship process.

Should I Get A Head Start And Fill Out The Application Forms Ahead Of Time?

While it may be tempting to start the process as soon as possible, it is best to wait until you meet with an immigration lawyer. The application process varies significantly depending on the specifics of your case, and you risk wasting time and resources by doing things incorrectly.

Is It More Cost Effective To Have An Immigration Lawyer Look Over My Application After I’ve Done It Myself?

This approach often backfires, resulting in additional cost and time spent waiting. By having a skilled immigration lawyer handle the application forms from the outset, you minimize the risk of making errors or omissions.

I Have Previously Been Married. Does This Affect My Chances Of Sponsorship?

Simply put, no. A previous marriage does not necessarily mean that you cannot proceed with a spousal sponsorship. There may be issues that the government will want to address which is something that an immigration lawyer can identify and prepare for.

I Have A Medical Condition. Am I Still Eligible For Spousal Sponsorship?

A medical condition does not necessarily disqualify a person from spousal sponsorship. This is an area that is constantly evolving so it is critical to have up-to-date information.

I Have A Criminal Record. Am I Still Eligible For Spousal Sponsorship?

A criminal record does not necessarily mean that a person cannot qualify for spousal sponsorship. A knowledgeable lawyer will be able to assess your case and identify whether any barriers exist.

Do I Make Enough Money To Sponsor My Spouse?

There are many exceptions in the regulations for spousal sponsorships financial requirements. An experienced immigration lawyer will be able to determine whether your financial situation will impact your application process and can help you plan accordingly.

“Johann is very professional. He represented us with our application for Sponsoring a Spouse. He was helpful and open to answer all our questions even after we applied. The result of our application was positive, and we can’t thank him enough. For these reasons, we have chosen to keep him as our representative for our Citizenship applications.”

“I found Johann to be very professional, hardworking, conscientious, courteous, friendly, approachable, available and honest. His out of the box and unconventional thinking has helped me deal with my permanent residence application, in the most efficient way possible.”

“I would highly recommend Mr. Johann Contreras without any reservations as I personally believe he is a model lawyer who genuinely provided consistently outstanding services and managed to rise above and beyond all expectations.”

“I met Johann when I got stuck, and was struggling, from the decline of my BCPNP application (which took more than 2 years after submission). I was hopeless because no one around me said it could be reversed. I contacted many lawyers, and I received only one response, which was Johann. After the first meeting, everything was so quick. I was shocked, due to the (previous) reaction and attitude of BCPNP. Johann made them (become) more careful and quick. In a week, I received my new BCPNP. He reversed it. I cannot thank him enough. I definitely recommend Johann to anybody who needs help and a quick solution regarding immigration. He is the one.”

“If you are looking for a lawyer who will go above and beyond the call of duty and will have your best interest at heart and not his wallet, then Johann Contreras is the man for you. He won my case and helped me keep my Co-operative Housing Association membership. His main concern was helping me keep my home and not how I was going to pay him for doing that. I recommend him, 100%. If it weren’t for him then I would probably be homeless right now. He was well worth every cent and more! Thanks again Johann!”
