Our application for inland sponsorship was received December 30th but I'm pretty sure they only started working on it in January
Last week we received 2 letters from the CIC, one requesting that we begin the CSQ paperwork and one stating that we should begin the paperwork (police certificates, valid passport etc) for the CIC.
We sent the paperwork for the CSQ last week and it was received May 2nd.
From my understading, this is odd... normally you have to get the CSQ, send it in to the CIC before they ask that you begin the paperwork for the CIC. Is this correct?
Does anyone know how long it takes to get the CSQ?
Also, my husband came here claiming refugee status, he was denied (obviously) so we began the sponsorship process. Now the CBSA has his passport, we asked them to release it and were denied because he is still in the PRRA process and because his residency hasnt been accepted yet (which makes no sense, he needs a valid passport to get his residency).
We're not sure what to do at this point because the CBSA has basically blocked us from going forward. We're thinking of just going to the consulate and making a new passport and just saying he doesn't have his old expired one.
Has anyone had to deal with something like this before... I'm kind of at a loss....
Thanks for any advice anyone can offer
