Family law and immigration

If you are married or living in a common-law relationship with a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident, our lawyers can help you in the Family Class category.

To make it possible for families who come from other countries to reunite in Canada, Citizenship and Immigration Canada has developed the Family Class sponsorship process. If you are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada, you can sponsor your spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner, dependent child (including adopted child), or other eligible relative (such as a parent or grandparent) to become a permanent resident. As a permanent resident, they can live, study, and work in Canada.
