Default I dont know what Im doing!

Hello,

I married my partner in January (She's Canadian and I'm British) All I know so far is i have to wait for 7 weeks so she can get the marrige certitifcare and then theres suppose to be a crapload of paper work to do..

Does anyone know how this can be done easily or is it worth going to see an immigration specialist?

I am currently back home in England (I'm British) and shes in Vancouver working a as a nurse. We are planning to settle in toronto as thats where I have the majority of my family. I need to get this all done by September as we have planned a pretty big party in October.

Any advise would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

don't even worry - and unless theres big skeletons in either of yours closets - theres certainly no need to get an immigration specialist involved.

You would be going down th spousal sponsorship route.

You would be applying "outland" (ie to be processed in London UK)

Once the forms are all in you could expect to have pr status in around 4 months.

Go to the CIC website. Search for immigrating to Canada, family class, spousal sponsorship - for all the forms you need.

It'll cost $1040 in total (plus medical checks for you and police cert.)

Also check the WIKI (blue button above and look again for spousal sponsorship)

dont get a lawyer - it's the quickest and easiest route. just do a search on spousal sponsorship on this forum.

print out the forms and read through the instructions guide very carefully. Ask lots of questions on this forum if you get stuck

It does, don't worry. Whether it's inland or outland, both have to be sent to Mississauga.

No, Outland spousal, application and sponsorship to Mississauga, Inland Spousal, application and sponsorship go to Vegreville.
