Help me!

I and my husband will sponsor my mother. I have 23 years old brother who finished full time program st the University and right away has been taken to the army (mandatory for men in Russia) for one year. By the end of the army he will take a post-graduated program at the University again on a full time basic(fully depend on my mom).

Will he be consider as a dependent child? Can I sponsor my mom with dependent child(my brother)?

Thank you

Hi there, please see the below link.  Your brother would not be eligible for sponsorship as he is over 22 years old and you have other living relatives.

Your brother is not a dependent child because he is not a full time student without a break since before the age of 22.  If he had done his army duty before age 22 and after that had been a full time student without a break, he could have been considered dependent. 

You can still try to include him in the application based on him not having a choice in the matter and still being dependent but they may refuse him.

If you live in SK or MB, you can sponsor an adult sibling under PNP family stream.  You would have to have lived there for a year and you and your brother would have to meet certain other requirements.

So if I apply for the sponsorship after he finished army (in half a year) and will be accepted in the University (for a post graduated diploma- mom will pay for his full time education)  ?

To count as a dependent child, he should have been a full time student without a break since before the age of 22.  He did have a break in his studies because he had to serve in the army.  You can try including him in your sponsorship of your mother and see how it goes but I do not know what immigration will decide.
