Debra, Expert

Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.

Debra, Expert

Please note that I am working from my computer and not actually texting. If you don’t answer back for a while I may not be online when you do but I will never desert you and will check back often. As well, as I am working from home it is possible that I will be interrupted but I will always return back as soon as I can.

Finally, although the site offers a call option I personally do not take calls but just work online. Some find this confusing as it looks like the offer is coming from me but that is just how the site presents the offer and it really isn’t coming from me. Some of the other experts do take calls and so you are very welcome to request a call on this post and an expert may take it. They will have the benefit of reading our exchange which should work out very well for everyone involved!

hello?

Debra, Expert

I don't know why you are saying hello. I answered you and I told you that I don't know what you mean by your husband's companion. There's no such thing as a companion being rejected so can you please try to figure out what the correct word is so I can answer you.

My son is now a high school student in Canada. He is 15 years old.My husband and I came to Canada with our son on June 23, 2019.My husband and I were in Canada with my son.We originally wanted to go back in March 2020, but our flight was cancelled because of the outbreak, so we had to stay here.So we need to apply for renewal.My visa renewal was successfully completed, but my husband was rejected.I don't know why, I don't know what to do next.
Customer
Because this is the epidemic, my son has to finish his education in Canada, and he is a minor, he needs our care.My family doesn't want to be separated during the epidemic, so I need your help

Debra, Expert

Well I find that strange as well because I would've thought they would've treated you both the same. Do you have a copy of your husband's rejection letter that I could read please?

Customer
I have

I'm sorry. English is my second language and I have to use a translation software so I can type slowly.

Debra, Expert

So what they are basically saying is they don't believe that your spouse will leave when the next visa expires if he's granted another one. I'm surprised that they didn't find the same for you but I think you just got lucky. The fact is that you don't have the right to remain in Canada with your son just because he's attending school in Canada. And that you weren't planning to stay past March 20 but then there was a pandemic.

So, you can retain an immigration lawyer and seek to have the decision reviewed by a court but it's not so likely that you would be able to succeed.

Do you see what I mean?

Customer
My husband must leave Canada?
img

Debra, Expert

Unless you can afford a lawyer who is experienced and see what they can do.

Customer
if I change my visa to a student visa now?
img

Debra, Expert

Well I don't know how that would help your spouse and you would need an offer enrolment in a university first.

Customer
i know.I mean if i apply a university,my husband could stay here,it's right?
Customer
I would also like to know, during the epidemic, what policy does Canada have for those who stay on tourist visas?
img

Debra, Expert

Yes he can be added to your study permit.

Things change all the time but if they are saying he must leave then he must leave.

Good afternoon,I have one more question.Is it OK if my husband applies for renewal again now?
img

Debra, Expert

There is no point in doing that unless you have a lawyer assisting you. It won't help at this point.

Customer
Of course,I want to know if there is a lawyer to help with the application again, what is the success rate?
Customer
2 If my husband comes back soon this time, how soon can he come back again?
Customer
I mean he return to our country
Customer
Hello Debra?
img

Debra, Expert

It is unlikely that the government will allow him to come back again soon given the fact that they have told him he must leave because they don't think his reason for staying is valid. I think you need to get an opinion from an immigration lawyer has all the facts in some detail as to what is the best next step.

Customer
Thank you.
