Escort my wife to Canada

Discussion in 'Visitors' started by SuperZizo, Sep 10, 2018.

  1. My wife has gotten her PRTD on H&C grounds and I want to be with her including our children to place her in Canada.

    Can we travel with her using TRV visas? and what are other ways which enables us to travel with her as she can't stand it alone?

  2. As your wife is unable to travel/stay without you and your children, your visit won't be for a finite duration.

    You can safely assume that your TRV applications will be refused. It would be obvious that you/your children intend to remain long-term in Canada with the intention of applying for PR via the inland process

  3. Interesting. @Bryanna for the benefit of others, do you mind saying a little bit about PRTD/H&C? If the condition is unrelated to the family, then how are applicants expected to live without their immediate family?

    What if her children are minors? Can she sponsor them?
  4. Many people (work permit holder, PR, Canadian citizens) lives apart from their immediate families. They are called satellite families. What's the big deal to live alone or by themselves in Canada?

    Whether or not she can sponsor her minor children depends if she meet her own RO.

  5. Agreed.

    Her PRTD on H&C was not issued because of her current immediate family (her spouse and minor children).

    It's pretty obvious her husband and children were not part of her PR application many years ago. IMO, she was able to successfully get a PRTD on H&C grounds because her parents most probably removed her from Canada when she was a minor.

    The OP is aware that it is a long journey before his wife meets RO herself so that she can sponsor the OP and their minor children. There's no big deal in living separately/alone in Canada for a couple of year before she can sponsor her current immediate family
  6. Thank you for the explanation, Bryanna. What is RO, if I may ask?

    My gut reaction is to guess you must be single, or not very close with your family (spouse & children) if you think it's OK to live years away from one's family. To each their own I guess, but I'm one of those people who would immediately quit and leave the country if I were told I cannot have my wife come live with me.

    It's one thing to say, sure, we'll do her green card in a year so there's a definite timeline and process. But to indefinitely be away from my family where they cannot even visit (because as we read here, TRVs are rejected if visiting spouse) then I'd never want to live in such a cruel country.

    For comparison, the US lets you go to MARRY for pete's sake, if you can reasonably show yuou're just there shortly and returning (which most would do as you need to reenter on the qualified status, like H4).

  7. RO = Residency Obligation

  8. Fortunately, you don't have to. Unfortunately for the OP, not having met RO (for whatever reason) and been lucky enough to get a PRTD on H&C grounds, they are making a life choice to come back to Canada. the requirements to sponsor family are clearly defined, so if you don't like the requirements, don't come back! It's not indefinite. It's until you meet RO. Canada isn't responsible for your life choices, so don't try to make it sound like they are. Or call it cruel....that's just dumb!

  9. Agreed.

    I have a family and had to spend time away from them while I was sponsored to become a permanent resident. Was it difficult to be away from my wife? YES. Ultimately, we made a CHOICE for her to go back to Canada (she is a citizen who lived with me in my country of origin for 12 years), we made a CHOICE for her to sacrifice to enable a better life for our family. Now we are together and it was worth the wait.

    No one is forcing any of us to live here, we CHOOSE to because we know the advantages. Our citizen and PR spouses fell for foreigners, they knew what they got into. We must think as adults and accept that we can't always have everything we want/need.

  10. Totally agreed.

    In addition, some citizens fell for high paying jobs outside the country (while spouses of work permit holders of Canada remain in their home country for the high paying jobs) and they CHOOSE to live apart and they knew what they got into.
