It's kinda weird situation here actually. She's married with her husband non-accompanying. After the ADR requesting her to explained why non-accompanying when living together in Canada, she simply said "it was because at the time of ITA her husband had been making a lot of efforts on language skills but still unable to reach a point that could be selected......Once I get my pr I'll sponsor him“ So long story short, same as everyone else, not enough points.You'll be fine. It would be highly unfair for them to refuse your application when you qualify with spouse unaccompanying.
If they don't want couples to go with unaccompanying option, they should simply take it out of their profile or add clauses.
No rules made, no rules broken.
What response did your friend give?
However, Edmonton VO seems to have caught this weakness and quoted her words above and refusal letter said ” You are admitting to not including your spouse specifically to pass the minimum requirements of R87.1(1) and circumventing the requirements of the class. When your spouse is added into processing of your app, you no longer meet the required points required at the time of ITA"
I'm really confused about this here. Apparently it's non-accompanying so her husband's not ADDED INTO her app, but why this VO added him and said she didn't have enough points??? Just doesn't make sense to me. It was heartbreaking for her... waited for 5 months and got this.
My response was pretty simple: not enough points, that's it.
