One of the best things about Canadian Immigration is that child sponsorship is a top priority. They understand the urgency of providing stability for children and make it their priority. As it is immigration, there is a process that needs to be undergone and requirements which need to be met. If you are applying for a visa through Child Sponsorship Lawyer in Toronto, it is best to consult an immigration law firm. We work to help you go through the child sponsorship successfully.
What are the criteria for qualifying as a sponsor?
Every law or procedure has its own sets of requirements that must be met under all circumstances. So before you apply as a sponsor, there are certain requirements that need to be fulfilled. Following are some of the requirements:
- The sponsor should be an adult or at least 18 years of age
- The sponsor should either be a citizen of Canada or should be registered under the Canadian Indian Act.
- The sponsor should be financially stable so that they can provide for the needs of the immigrant child.
If you have never sponsored a child before, the criterions mentioned above can turn out to be a little tricky. In such a situation, it is best to approach an immigration law firm. We will not only help you to figure out the smallest of details and make sure that adequate proof is provided but would also work to increase the speed of the process keeping in mind the stability of the child.
How to qualify as a sponsee?
There is another set of rule that pertains to who can qualify as a sponsee. In order to qualify as a sponsee, one must be under 22 years of age and should not be married or have a common-law partner. However, exceptions can be made in some cases. We would help you understand whether an exception can be made and if yes, then what kind of exception.
If you are wondering that if it is possible to sponsor an individual who is over 22 years of age, then the answer is yes it is possible. If the individual that you want to sponsor is above 22 years of age, then they can be sponsored. This is possible under two criterions. First, due to a health condition, which makes them unable to provide for themselves and so they need support. Second, they were dependent on their parents before the age of 22 years for financial support.
It is crucial that all these conditions are fulfilled before the child enters Canada. If you are planning on sponsoring multiple children then make sure that the application of each child is filled out independently of the other. This needs to be done as each child is independent and different from the other child who is also being sponsored.
