We’ve covered just under 40 chapters about the sponsorship application – some of them fairly detailed – and we’ve finally reached our goal of a successful permanent resident with:
- their PR Card,
- their Health card, and
- their Driver’s License.
If you thought it was going to be a fairly easy and straightforward path, you now understand that this is not the case. But if you’ve read all 37 chapters and are still reading right now, you understand that careful planning and persistence and patience are necessary in order to successfully navigate the entire Spousal Sponsorship application process.
What you do next is, of course, up to you.
But if you feel overwhelmed don’t be surprised. It can be a tough slog at times, and it will have its high and low points, but preparing an easy-to-understand but complete application package will separate you from those many packages that are confusing and incomplete and are often returned without even processing – or have a number of follow-up requests for more information from IRCC officials and end up being refused in the end.
While you can decide at any point in this lengthy process to appoint a representative, appointing one earlier in the process will speed things up rather than presenting a nearly complete file that they then have to wade through and sort out and correct.
Even in this case where you realize half-way through the application that you need help, if you have taken some care and put together a reasonably well-organized application, your representative will be able to put things in order that much more quickly.
In other words, use this guide whether you decide to appoint a representative or not. Either way, it will help you navigate a long and sometimes frustrating process and help you avoid some of the typical problems most applications fall into.
Are you worried your application will get rejected because of an error?
