Hello.

I have been married to my husband for at least 2.5 years ago.

When he was working in Dubai. He applied for Canada under Express Entry for himself and me as well.

We both have received our PR, and we landed there in May 2018. After living around 2 month in Canada, he moved to Dubai to their employer. And I was there in Canada and I came home country Pakistan in August 2018.

The thing is I have been having some issues with him since April 2018 but problem still exist.

And then he finally Divorced me in my home country. I have my PR with me. I wanted to know that can I go there and live. will he have me deported back?

Or how will it affect my PR status there?

I mean, I have the PR, how will it affect me?
Can I move to another State with same PR or I have to change address.

Please advised and guide in details.

Thanks and best Regards

Shah

1. Yes you can return to Canada, as you were not sponsored but were included as a dependent in your husband's application.
2. You can live wherever you want in Canada.
3. Once you are permanent resident, you don't have to inform Canada Immigration where you are living.

4. You must meet your residency obligations by living in Canada for 2 years in every 5 year period.

5. Your ex-husband can't have you deported.

1. No, he has no authority, he is no longer your spouse. Keep your PR card.
2. CIC has no interest that you are now divorced.
