Hi there, I am sponsoring my husband to Canada. He has a dependent child who has lived with the mother since birth, and who he is not in regular contact with. The child will NOT be accompanying him to Canada. There is no official custody arrangement except the fact that the child has always lived with the mother. The mother has refused to give us permission to take the child for medical exams. My husband will write a letter stating that the mother has refused and that he understands that he may never be able to sponsor the child to Canada in the future. My question is this, for those who are in a similar situation, what have your experiences been? Have you been accepted for PR with no problems, or have you been refused or subject to delays? I'm hoping that this issue doesn't greatly reduce his chances of being accepted for PR. Thanks for your help.
