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!

Customer

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

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

If your son wants to sponsor your daughter-in-law for a permanent residency status then yes this can happen while she is inside of Canada on a visitor's visa. In fact at some point during the application process she can even receive an open work permit.

If she wants to apply on her own as a skilled worker then she would normally have to go back home to do that but because of Covid there may be some exceptions. She could speak to Canada immigration to ask.

Does that help?

Customer
i have got any reply yet
Customer
where is the lawyer?
Customer
She wants to be applied through spousal sponsorship . Can she do that while being in canada.. do inland applications take shorter and can she leave after applying
Customer
how much time in land application will take for immigration?
img

Debra, Expert

Yes she can do an inland application for spousal sponsorship. She cannot leave after applying because she is likely going to be refused admission again. She cannot enter with the intention of remaining. It will take at least one year. It could take much more because of Covid.

Customer
if we take a lawyer to apply for her immigration is faster or we should apply ourself?
Customer

It is best to retain a lawyer if you can afford one. What province are you in please?

Customer
IF SHE GOES TO PAKISTAN AND GET 5 YEARS VISIT VISA THEN APPLY FOR IMMIGRATION FROM PAKISTAN. UNDER THIS SITUATION CAN SHE TRAVEL TO CANADA, AFTER APPLIYING FOR IMMIGRATION FROM PAKISTAN, TILL SHE THE IMMIGRATION WHICH MAY TAKES 3 TO 4 YEARS?
img

Debra, Expert

No she can't. She is not going to be admitted to Canada once the application starts in all likelihood. Also, I don't also see her getting a five-year visitors visa. That isn't going to happen.

So she can apply for a spousal sponsorship from back home and it will take about a year or she can apply for spousal sponsorship while inside Canada and that will take a little longer but she can't leave or she can go home and apply as a skilled worker which will take about 6 months.

What you can do to find a lawyer is one of the following things.

You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.
Here is a link to the site:
https://lsrs.lso.ca/lsrs/welcome

Or you can check on a site called lexpert. This is a legal directory of leading lawyers and law firms throughout Canada and is well-respected by the legal community.
Here's the link to their website:

http://www.lexpert.ca/directory/find-lawyers-or-law-firms/

Does that help as a starting point?
