but why would you think that canada would be an easier route?????  what makes you think that australia is harder or trickier?????  can you please explain.  look at this, http://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/300-  i would think that its somewhat easier to immigrate to australia in my case because of what happened in the u.s.  what do you think?  rsvp.

Well I don't actually know. I was going off of my memories of the struggles people I met were having 10+ years ago.

So do you not have a spouse? Or is your spouse Canadian/Australian? I'm confused.

but then how do immigration officers determine who will get a permanent resident card and who doesnt under the spousal sponsorship program?  has there ever been cases in which under the spousal sponsorship program the person who is being sponsored has had a criminal record, more specifically having gotten deported from the u.s. because they were a legal permanent resident with an aggravated felony and still managed to get a canadian permanent resident card under the spousal sponsorship program to your knowledge or hearsay?  do you think that it maybe still possible like 10 years or more after having gotten deported from the u.s. to immigrate legally to canada under the spousal sponsorship program with a criminal record for something that happened a long time ago and that an immigration officer would approve it???  how do you see an immigration officer approving such a case for permanent residency?  how can one tell or an immigration lawyer assuming hes seasoned and experienced know when such a case cant be won legally of course?????  how many cases have there been where someone who is being sponsored also has a criminal record too at the same time?  dont you think this might arouse suspicion to an immigration officer??????????????  rsvp.

Hi Richard,
I wasn't offended, I was off. It was the weekend.

To answer your first post: I don't have personal knowledge of this. One of our consultants might, but I don't know. That being said, everything I told you is above board and how you would go about it in Canada. First, you get Criminal Rehabilitation. Then you get sponsored. Provided both applications meet the requirements, you should not have any trouble, provided these things are legitimate. However, I'm getting the sneaking suspicion that something else is going on here. Remember that this is a public forum; anyone can look at it.

As to the link you posted, this appears to be a list of why sponsors may not be eligible. Your criminal record does not affect your spouse's ability to sponsor you.

As to this:

This is illegal. It doesn't matter how I feel about it. If you and your spouse are discovered doing this, you will be denied entry to Canada (or asked to leave or even deported if you are here), you may be banned from further entry.

All of this is to say that if you do not have a spouse or partner to sponsor you, stop looking at sponsorship as your way to enter Canada. You are contemplating something that violates Canada's immigration rules and regulations. You should not do that. Don't do it. You need to look into other methods, after you get your criminal rehabilitation.

but do you think that canada might be easier than australia in my case to immigrate or not?  if canada is more similar to the u.s., then can i assume that australia and new zealand are more similar to the u.k. just like the u.s. and canada are similar????  rsvp.

I don't know enough about Australia and New Zealand to answer that. As I said before, when I lived in Australia, it was tough to move there. But I don't know if that's true any more.

but if an immigration officer has the last word, what role do seasoned/experienced immigration attorneys play in the process then?  are they just like middlemen who cant necessarily guarantee that you will be given a permanent resident card or what?  rsvp.

Nobody can guarantee anything. In fact, if a lawyer or consultant tells you they guarantee something, they are lying to you (and possibly violating their own code of conduct).

People seek out legal advice and assistance for various reasons: peace of mind, someone to double check their work, someone to do the work for them, someone to explain the complicated rules, and other reasons. And obviously it depends on the type of immigration application, and the applicant's disposition, whether or not it makes any sense to hire assistance.

so then an immigration officer has the final say/word if under the spousal sponsorship assuming that someone has passed the criminal rehabilitation if the sponsored spouse gets permanent residency then?   what might make an immigration officer deny the application assuming its at her/his discretion?  do they have to give or offer an explanation if the application does get denied to the applicants?????  let me give this scenario.  lets say that someone who has the aggravated felony under u.s. immigration law got deported and then like 10 years or so later was being sponsored by someone in canada.  the couple has known each other for at least 2 years if not longer like 4 years going on its 5th year before they got married.  the marriage takes place with the grooms family being in attendance.  immigration now comes into the picture.  the interview takes place.  for some or whatever reason the application gets denied and no explanation is given as to why!  all we know is that the immigation officer has decided to deny it!  they knew each other for roughly 5 years and their application was denied!  all that work for nothing!!!!!!  does this now make sense where im coming from?????????  rsvp.

well, did you even read my message which was kind of long?  if a couple got married after knowing each other for 4 years and nearly going on 5, what if their application for whatever reason was denied by the immigration officer?  what do you have to say to this?  how can a married couple know if theyre gonna be rejected or not?  or is all of this a gamble for the couple who got married after 4 years of knowing each other?????   rsvp.
