I am sorry to learn the unfortunate choice you and your current spouse have to make.
1. Regardless of whether you were a sponsor or a dependent, a legal separation/divorce does not affect the PR as long as the case is genuine. From your situation it can be ascertained that you guys have been married for the last 5 yrs and things have now changed between you. The genuineness of the case can be proved if required
2. If you or your spouse plan to remarry to someone else at a later stage and sponsor the dependent later, it may be challenging and the immigration dept may scrutinize the file strictly. The immigrant visa if approved, the interview will be very tough
3. are your guys now residing in Canada as PRs? or back to USA? If you are in USA as a resident alien, separation and remaining motions will have to be filed legally in USA and not in Canada
4. Be sure to inform CIC of any change in family composition immediately as the event occur. Failure to do so can jeopardize ur PR
5. The sponsors of the dependents of Canadian immigration are obligated to support the dependents for 3 years financially
The above text is a juice of research, you may want to consult a Canadian immigration attorney to be on a safe side. Hope this helps.
I hope you guys have change of heart and graveyard your separation plans
Guys iam in very critical situation.Can seniors help me on this.
Here is the situation, My wife is the primary and iam dependant and received the PR under US-VISA category
2 months back we completed our landing formalities and applied for the PR CARD. We are planing to separate now legally(was married 5 years back).
i) If i will separate with her, whats is the situation for my pr status in Alberta.(As iam dependent).
ii) I know for primary it will not be a problem, infuture can she create any problems for me ?
Mainly in this above scenario, Can dependent work and live in PR status?
