Arrow Humanitarian and Compassionate Application

Does anyone know the criteria immigration uses when accepting or rejecting a humanitarian or compassionate application?

They say that money and convenience are not reasons enough for accepting an application. What is? Are there any specific keywords or phrases they are looking for?

My fiancee and I are planning to marry. It is my hope that we will do so in August of next year when we can have our family and friends at the ceremony; they are spread all over Canada, the United States and Great Britain. We will not be able to do this within the six months immigration has given him to stay in the country.

Can anything be done?

Thanks for any input.

Money and/or convenience reasons will not get you anywhere when it comes to H&C
cases. It must be something really serious what prevents your fiancee from
applying abroad in home country.

Visa may be extended if there are grounds for it. But have you considered
getting married now and then have another more traditional ceremony when you
can gather entire family?

What is considered "really serious"?

Fear of political/religious/life style prosecution in home country, pregnant
partner or newborn baby in Canada, etc.

Your only reason so far is convenience - if you don't want to get married then
in order to qualify for inland process you must meet criteria for common-law
spouses - at lease 12 months of living together.
