Spousal sponsorship is widely known as the relatively easy method of immigration. However, this is untrue in more complicated application cases. The marriage or common-law relationship must be deemed sincere by the IRCC, which means that it must not be just a pathway for immigration. While some mistakenly believe that criminal records are easily pardoned in spousal sponsorship, the opposite is also true. Spousal and common-law sponsorship is extremely case-specific, and it is especially complicated and less successful for those whose marriages are not their first or have criminal records. Consultation with an immigration expert is strongly recommended as the Canadian immigration law gets increasingly more complex. In 2018, 62,885 spouses were sponsored to come to Canada, while refusal rates have increased by 50%.
