Conjugal sponsorship application, would this get approved?

  1. If you actually require $60K in liquid funds to be able to stay in his country for a year, you *may* have a chance at conjugal. That is a fairly extreme requirement, so IRCC *may* accept it as an immigration barrier. However, they just as easily may not.

  2. I just saw on another website it says you need to prove you'll have an income of approx $2500/month US if you plan to stay long term

    But I have to quit my job to move there lol so it's like catch 22 either way the scenario is not working out. Anyway we'll see what happens I guess
  3. Having to quit your job is not a legal or immigration barrier. The funds requirement could be an immigration barrier, if true. I suggest you do some research about it instead of just looking on "another website".
  4. Yes I get the whole can't use your job as a barrier thing

    putting that aside what Im saying is that their government requires a $2500 US monthly income in order to meet the prerequisite for long term stay visa which is an income I won't have since I would have to be quitting my job here to go there technically speaking

    So again catch 22 lol
  5. IRCC cannot force someone to marry in order to sponsor someone. I guess the gray area is about HOW the couple will become common-law partners? Will IRCC challenge the fact that the Canadian didnt move to their partners country to become common-law? Check out the link below and draw your own conclusion as I aint no immigration lawyer lol


    Requirement to be married before submitting the application
    IRCC cannot require couples to marry in order to immigrate. However, if they are not married, they must be common-law partners. There is no provision in IRPA for fiancé(e)s or intended common-law partners. The expectation is that a Canadian or permanent resident and a foreign national will get married or live together and establish a common-law relationship before they submit sponsorship and immigration applications.

    The issue is that IRCC wants to ensure that only spouses or people in spouse-like relationships are given PR. They don't want to give PR to someone's girl/boy friend when the two people may not be that serious about their relationship - they may date for a few months and then break up, for example. That's fine in general, but you shouldn't get PR on the basis of such a relationship.

    If two people are legally married, and the marriage is genuine (i.e not done just to get PR), then it's a clear indication that they are serious about their relationship. Sure, they may get divorced later, even perhaps a few months after immigrating, but at the time of applying, they are in a serious committed relationship.

    If you aren't married, they want you to prove that you are essentially married in all but name. Does the world see you as married - do you share finances, live together, etc. That's why the burden of proof is higher for common-law spouses.

    If you want to be married/common-law but it is impossible to do so because of a legal/immigration bar, they have the option for a conjugal sponsorship. However, they really will ask many questions to make sure you are in fact that serious about the relationship. That's why a recent relationship, or something where you can't really prove that the two of you want to build a life together, will be questioned. The burden of proof is even higher for conjugal relationships, unless there's a very obvious reason why you cannot show such proof (death penalty for same sex couples? you probably don't have many social media posts..)
