I am sponsoring my wife, she has a boy from her previous marriage but the father has full custody and give no access to the child. I am filling out the forms and we included him in the family information IMM 5406.


But in the IMM 0008 form, should we say 2 persons and include the child and tick he will not come to Canada ( we cannot have him do the medical exams as we don't have any access to him) OR do not include him in the IMM 0008 form?

Please help.

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us.

It may be best to consult a reputable and registered immigration consultant or an immigration lawyer familiar with both immigration and family law for advice specific to your situation. To find a community legal clinic in your area, visit Services Near Me. The Settlement.Org article, Should I get help with my immigration application from an immigration consultant or lawyer? may provide information on the type of help and advice you can receive from a lawyer or immigration consultant.


It may also help to connect with a community resource navigator at 211 to narrow your search. 211 Ontario is a free, confidential service. Their phone service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Here is a link to their live chat if you prefer to communicate online. Their live chat service is available Monday to Friday from 7am-9pm ET.


We hope this information is helpful.


Sincerely,


Your Settlement.Org team
