hi im in dire need of advise, please no hateful replies.
im already a PR here in Canada, but before i got my PR i had a boyfriend who is a tourist also from the Philippines and we had a son, but to make things complicated i was married then, my boyfriend who is also married in the Philippines left me, so to make things right i told my husband what happened and accepted my mistakes and i was able to sponsor my husband and my elder son into Canada, but after more than a year of struggling with our relationship we ended up in divorce, we have been divorced now for more than a year, on the other hand, i was able to reconnect with the father of my youngest son, this time he is already separated with his wife.
i am thinking of applying him as my conjugal partner, and in doing so, would it affect our status as PRs? i need your advise please, God Bless!
Conjugal is a difficult road to take because unless you get a very lenient visa officer, you must prove that you have been in a marriage like relationship for 1 year or more and that immigration barriers or law of the land is preventing you from living together to qualify as a common law.
Have you been in a marriage like relationship with this man for more than 12 months? Do you support him or he supports you financially? Do you have joint bank accounts, joint property, insurance policies naming each other as beneficiaries and wills naming each other as heirs?
Could you marry him if you wanted to but choose not to? Could you live with him if you wanted to but choose not to? Are you ready to take financial responsibility for him for 3 years after he comes to Canada? Those are questions you need to know the answer to as well.
As for your PR being safe, if you tell the whole story about the affair and your husband forgiving you etc., they may believe that you were already separated from your husband when you sponsored him to Canada which means he got his PR based on misrepresentation and could lose it. Did you actually sponsor him after you got your PR or did you include him on your own PR application as your dependent? If you got your PR first and then sponsored him, you can not sponsor a new partner until your husband has been a PR for 3 years.
