I'm sorry for your situation. It can be quite difficult and stressful to be asked for additional evidence, and lawyers can definitely be so expensive! If I were in your position, I would focus on getting all of the evidence possible you have that shows you were living with your wife from July, 2019 until now (updated licenses or IDs, current hydro/electricity bills, credit card bills, statements from your bank accounts for the last months, your paystubs, your lease (like you said), insurance confirmation (for example, if you have life insurance and your wife is on your plan, or if your wife is on your work's medical plan), letters from friends/neighbors/family - basically anything that has a date, your name, and your accurate address) and then explain in detail why you weren't living together when you initially got married. I would write a full letter that details your situation as explicitly as possible, with dates showing when you moved in together, under what circumstances, etc. In this case, the more detail you have the better. I would double-check for consistency as well. If your friends/neighbors write letters, it's easy for them to get dates mixed up (one of our bridal party said she met me months after she did, but that was just a case of bad memory). Consistency will help ease any concerns.

When my wife and I moved out of her parents house, I submitted a bunch of documents to show our new address.
1. BC Hydro Bill
2. Updated credit card bills (from us both)
3. Updated bank account information (from us both)
4. Updated life insurance information
5. The lease
6. Updated BC IDs and drivers license

I haven't been asked for any additional information.

Good luck!

I have got the over all idea on what to collect and again thanks for helping out. I have lots of evidence of my wife with same address from July 2019 to until now, but for me it’s really less, cuz I’m out of status after i filed the application. I am not working at all from that time cuz I don’t have status, so I have limited stuff showing the same address. I paid my lawyer 5 grands last year when she filed the application, and amazingly i never expected she would ask me 2 grands to address this issue. She is not helping me at all unless I pay 2 grands. These people should be reported and they are crooks. God will punish them. I am going to report her after I get my approval. She is not even giving me an option to pay in installments. I have a lady working for the government, she runs an ngo, she helps people for free. I am thinking of taking my application to her. I have deadline of nov 17 to submit these things. I no longer trust my lawyer. She didn’t put my file properly, if she would have done it properly, no problem should’ve occurred. Maybe I’ll do it myself. The things which sucks is everything with me and wife is real but it’s too hard to explain them as there is a risk of rejection.

My CoPR was on my IRCC account. If it's not there maybe give them a call or complete the web form

I am waiting still waiting my COPR document. But my application was complete in July 24th and became a PR resident. I called the IRCC , she mentioned to me, nothing to worry about and that am a permanent resident since 24th July and i mentioned like a friend of mine received the COPR document but i did not, she was like , some people receive it some do not, each case is different. She was like wait for your PR card, i was like how but i havent sent my picture to them or anything. I was like they;ll use the picture i sent with my application, she was like yes , if they need anything from you they will send you , but so far you are a permanent resident and i couldnt understand her well when she mentioned to me that my PR card was submitted or in process. So basically ill just have to wait if i receive nothing by end of September we will send an inquire more about it. But i guess , i should just wait for my PR card to arrive. Hope this is a good feedback to whoever is in the same situation as mine and is a bit worried about it. cause it has been a month since i became a PR resident
