My Wife is from Philippines and she has a child
« on: July 21, 2014, 02:48:14 AM »
Good day Immigroup,

I am a Canadian Citizen and was married to a Filipina last 2013. The thing is she has a child. Would it be possible for them to migrate here in Canada? How would it work? I wanted them here. I don't want her to leave the child in the Philippines. What do I need?

You need to sponsor her and the child will come along as a dependent. You can contact us for a consultation at 1-866-760-2623 or 416-962-2623 or [email protected] for further details.

I am in a similar position being a Canadian wishing to marry a Philippine Lady. Is the Philippine Government Process that much of a confusing MESS to require Professional Assistance ? Can someone tell me if it is possible to obtain the proper documentation , Marry and have her Passport changed into my last name (maybe changing her last name isn't even necessary) and have her come to me to Canada all within 6 months ?

Maybe I am dreaming that this all can be accomplished within 6 months!

Your comments are greatly appreciated.

Hi,
The marriage part may be easy - I am not expert - but the sponsorship part, bringing your fiancee to Canada -  can be very complicated and will take a very long time. Currently the Manila office's processing time is 14 months and that is in addition to the 2 months or so that it will take to approve you as a sponsor. An "inland" application - that is, bringing her to Canada as a visitor and then marrying her here and sponsoring her - will take even longer than that, though she will have the opportunity to apply for a work permit once you are approved to sponsor.

Hope this helps.
