this all sounds good, but can please someone recommend whit what start in this situation??
On the 12th of August, 2009 I left Latvia to go to Canada, using the visa issued for one year stay. After 2 months I met one Canadian citizen and after another while we decided to move in together. On the 11th of August, 2010 we decided to wed. After public information we understood that I do not have to leave Canada, but I can apply for permanent residence. At the beginning we tried to fill the documents ourselves, but realized that without a professional help of a lawyer it will be impossible. That is the reason we started to save money for legal services. In the meantime my husband got sued for physical abuse to another person (but not to woman or child), which resulted in his job loss and he had do apply for State support. So far we understand even if my husband will not be sentenced, he is not allowed to sponsor me until he has paid back the social state support. And then if my husband will be sentenced he cannot sponsor me.
On the 18th of May this year I have returned to Latvia, because I can work here, but without a permission to stay I am not allowed to work or study legally in Canada.
I would like to admit that our marriage is not fictive.
I would appreciate if you could help me with following questions:
1. Is it allowed for me to visit my husband without the permission to stay? If yes, what documents do I need to present?
2. If my husband gets sentenced, is he allowed to sponsor me, with the aim to get the permission to stay? If he is, we would apply for the permanent residence from Latvia, which would result in no deed for my husband to sponsor me anymore.
3. Is it allowed for my husband's family or other relatives to sponsor me?
4. Am I entitled to apply for another way of permission to stay, with the objective to be with my new family?
I am looking forward to your reply.
Yours faithfully, N
