Immigration Counsels earn their money by preventing you from making foolish mistakes!
Think about that for another minute. You have to first convince your Immigration Counsel you’re in a genuine relationship so that he/she can assist you with convincing the decision maker to approve your spousal sponsorship application. The following are some typical mistakes made by those that do not retain an experienmced immigration counsel.
- Why do some people think that sending in intimate or nude photos of themselves would convince an immigration officer that they are in a genuine relationship?
Do you want to spend your days at work looking at intimate or nude couples, day after day, year after year? You can only submit twenty photos so who would be taking the nude photos of the two of you? Are you convinced that every nude couple you have ever seen are in a genuine loving and lasting relationship? Why would any gentleman want others to see naked photos of the Lady he loves?
- Why do some people out of status lie and say they are NOT working without authorization, when they are?
Do you think immigration officers are stupid and that they don’t know it takes two incomes to enjoy family life in Canada? How do you expect an immigration officer to show you respect if you’re being sponsored by an intelligent single mother and she is allowing you to lie on her couch all day long drinking beer while watching Judge Judy? You have overstayed your status in Canada so you’re not perfect. Immigration wants to know that you care about your sponsor and how you are making his/her life a better life.
- Why do some people constantly submit vast amounts of irrelevant information about their relationship?
Immigration Officers see your application as just another file and they want to get to the core issues as quickly as possible so they can go on break. They want to see evidence from you to prove your relationship is genuine and continuing because, A, B, C, D, etc. They need to see proof that your relationship is not a bad faith relationship that was entered into just to gain status in Canada. Hobbies, Interests likes and dislikes etc.
- Why do some people think certain photo’s like one with two hands with rings on them proves a genuine relationship?
If your documents claim that there were 300 people at your wedding reception you better show a photo of that. If you converted to a different religion a photo of whom presided over your marriage need to be included. If the sponsors sibling or parents traveled half way around the world to attend the wedding you need to submit a photo of them with you at the wedding. Photos of the two of you when your not looking directly into the camera laughing in a distance proves best that there is a bond between the two of you best.
