Default Urgent Help Required!!

Hi guys,

I sent of my fsw1 application to sydney earlier this year and was given the green light to send my full application to London. The problem is that to gain my points (70/67) i put that i have family in Canada which i do, My uncle - dads brother. But he has now turned round and said that i cannot use him on my application (stupid family reasons!!), so that leaves me with 65 points, 2 short!!

Using my uncle now is not an option, will the London Canadian Immigration Office still accept my application with 2 points short if i explaint to them the situation?


Also i will be going to canada next week for a visit, dose anyone know a GOOD immigration lawyer in the toronto are who would help me out?

Thanks for the help

If you claim points for a relative you will be asked to submit proof in the form of their canadian status ie passport or PR card copy and also credit or bank statments showing expenses from within Canada. That is what I was asked to do.

Without this evidence you may struggle to get the 5 points for family.If you already have this info then I doubt you will be questioned even if you are not on talking terms. Your relative is not sponsoring you so hopefully it should be a bit easier to convince CIC that he is your relative.

Can't advice on any immigration lawyers

Good luck anyway

If I recall they did ask for tax or bank/credit statements from the last 6 months to prove the relative is actually present in Canada

Hi read2go,

1- What type of bank statements did they request?

2- Is presenting birth certificate & copy of the relative landing in addition to the bank statements will be enough to get the 5 points?

Thanks...

bank statements? Without his knowledge? Wouldn't that be a violation of privacy?

1. just regular monthly statements from the bank showing monthly expenses.

2.copy of canadian passport or PR card and evidence of relation to you. You have to prove to cic how you are related. Use a family tree with the help of the bith certificate

No idea on the answer, but really sorry to hear this. Hope you can get it sorted.

If not, any chance of doing an immersion course in French to try and get the two points for basic level French?
