Hi. I just want to ask if I can still petition my girlfriend, which also is the mother of my daughter, when we got married? I landed here in Canada as a permanent resident with me and my daughter dependent to my mother. At the time of our application, the immigration sent us a letter regarding the status of me and my girlfriend. The problem is, that time we were not in good conditions although we are still friends, so I wrote in the letter that we were not together but still has communication. As time goes by, we became okay again with the decision that it will be the best for our child. She also signed a document allowing our daughter to come with me here in Canada. Are there any misrepresentations on what I did? Thanks in advance.
There was no misrepresentation as long as you and your girlfriend were not in a common-law relationship and you were honest with CIC. People do reconcile and it looks like you have already informed CIC that you were still in communication at the time you landed in Canada. You can apply to sponsor her as your spouse after you get married. However, expect scutiny because CIC will want to be sure that they were not mislead.
