IMM 5409

ColorMePanda:
I am not quite sure so I wouldn't take my word for it but I would just tick never married and then check common law.
Are you currently in Canada?
If so I would try calling CIC.

If you are common-law, check common-law.

Also, when it asks your marital status, either for the sponsor or the sponsored person, what should we tick, Never married (since neither of us have been married before) or Common-law (since we are in a common-law relationship)?
We want to do everything correctly so sometimes something that seems easy it may confuse us even more!  ???


whoopi83:
We were informed by CIC that we should not include the IM5409 UNLESS one has a co-signer.  They stated that one should get a notarized statement based on the IMM5409, i.e. a legal declaration of a common law union, along with notarized letters of support from family/friends but that the IMM5409 was to be used for sponsorship of other family members where the sponsor had a co-signer to meet LICO. 

If you are applying as common law partners then you must check the common law box - do not check never married as the application could be returned to you.

mitamata:
All that IMM 5409 says is that "yes, we are a common-law couple and this is why". If you are in a common-law union, it can't possibly hurt to include it - if CIC doesn't need it, they just won't look at it. So I'd say include it even if it's not necessary. If it's not too much trouble.

Fiore:
Thank you very much for the advise! :D
