Legal Ease, Expert

I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

Sometimes responses and replies take time, so I ask you to be courteous and patient to allow me the time to type answers to you and also to others. At times I may even have to do some research.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.


Why is your baby living with his father?

Customer
because i currently moved to canada
Customer
Hi
Customer
are we finished?
img

Legal Ease, Expert

I don't understand. Is your baby back home?

Customer
he is back in ethiopia
img

Legal Ease, Expert

What is your legal status in Canada?

Customer
Permanent resident
img

Legal Ease, Expert

When you applied for PR status was the baby born yet?

Customer
No he was not born when it all began
img

Legal Ease, Expert

Do you mean you were a PR before he was born?

Customer
No I was sponsored to come here the process began before he was born.
img

Legal Ease, Expert

But were you not granted your PR status until after he was born?

Customer
It was granted after he was born
img

Legal Ease, Expert

Did you tell Canada Immigration when he was born?

Customer
I told them when I was entering at the immigration office
img

Legal Ease, Expert

Here is the answer to your query. Please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions related to this response and know that I will respond as soon as I can.


Because you provided Canada Immigration with your change of information you can sponsor your child for PR status.

Here is a link to the information you will need:

https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/family-sponsorship/spouse-partner-children.html

Does that help as a starting point?

Customer
do I start the process only for my son? The father has to be included too right?
img

Legal Ease, Expert

No but the father has to consent to the child becoming a PR of Canada or else you need a court order.

Customer
What if I want to bring them both?
img

Legal Ease, Expert

Then you would sponsor them both.

Customer
Can I ask how?
img

Legal Ease, Expert

Of course you can ask but I already told her. All the information you need will be available at the link I provided you about. The government site will tell you exactly what to do. You just need to take some time to read through it when you have the moment.

Customer
Okay I will! Another question, since my son has sick since birth would I need to include that information in the process? Could that a reason to kind of speed up the process for him?
img

Legal Ease, Expert

No that would not speed up the process. It will likely slow it down.

Customer
Can I ask why?
img

Legal Ease, Expert

Because there would need to be a lot more medical records. But also there is no way to speed things up ever and especially during covid.

Customer
Okay I guess its just going to take time either way
img

Legal Ease, Expert

Sadly it definitely will.

Customer
Okay thank you so much for your time. I really appreciate it!
img

Legal Ease, Expert

You are very welcome.

img

Legal Ease, Expert

Is there anything more I can help you with before I mark this question as complete?

img
