Default Spouse Question...

Hello all!

I am being sponsored by my Candian wife and we were wondering if it is important/necessary for her (or both of us) to have a job organised for the sponsorship application to be passed?

Cheers!
Jodie

hello and welcome to the forum.

It isnt' necessary, however..she ( as the sponsor) does need to show how she can support you...~which could be~...money in bank..good career prospect...place to stay etc etc...even if it is with relatives that is fine.----there is no set amount required for income.

you ( as the applicant) do not need a job set up or anything....and you do not need to show amounts of money in the bank etc.......

keep in mind this is for the Spouse Visa...as it can get a tad confusin on these boards at times with the different visas and requirements.

so that aside......i am guessing you are applying OUTof Canada application.? if so......your whole process *could* be done within 4-6mths of applying...esp when you are front loading your meds and police clearance ( well done!!)

there are quite a few on the boards on that moment doing the spouse visa thing...and there are quite a few of us who have already done it.....good luck and keep us posted....

Sorry to disagree, Maple Leaf, but for spousal sponsorship you don't need to show that you can support your partner financially. I cannnot remember who it was, but someone on this forum put "NIL" in the income part of their sponsorship application and CIC was fine with that, and I have my AIP and my (Canadian) husband gave up his job in the UK when we moved over here and didn't have one arranged in Canada.

Edited to add that it was Biiiiiiink (however many i's!)

Thanks so much for the help guys!!!

It's great to know that there are people who have been through the whole thing and are on the other side of THE FORMS...

I wish I could return the favour with some good advice but I the only thing I can recommend is a good place to buy fish and chips in Hull (Cave Street) not that it matters if you are in Canada...

Thanks so much!

Jodie
