Hi, found this forum in a google search. I've been in relationship with my now wife (married Jan. 2010), for several years. I'm an American on Social Security Disability for an arthritic knee. Because I don't work, we've been able to maintain a relationship by me spending six months a year there as a visitor without temporary residency permits or work permits, as I have an income from the federal government. So we decided to get married and file for permanent residency this year. It's all very scary to us, so we keep putting it off, because we're afraid they'll just say no and it's so expensive we can't afford an attorney or lengthy appeals. So I guess my question is this... does my being on Federal Disability make my chances of being accepted as a permanent resident extremely difficult?
Disability is no ground of rejection. Despite my disablity I was granted immigration and right now I am in Canada. Several people here show surprise when they hear that despite my disability I was granted visa by CIC. Disability which is too much burden on health care is a problem.
