Subject: my boyfriend's tough situation
  I have a question:

My boyfriend´s mother needs to be sponsored here. He is a permanent resident and has been employed with the same employer for over 12 months and has made over 20000 a year for the last 12 months. He is separated from his wife for almost 4 years. He has no children. His dad has passed away 2 years ago, and his grandmother passed away yesterday. His mom is all alone in India and has no body. he needs her to come here as soon and as quick as possible. What is the process? How long will it take? What is the fastest approach? How much will it cost? And what does he need to show?

You have a very serious problem. The Low Income Cutoff for sponsoring parents is found here under tables and charts. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pdf/kits/guides/5196E.PDF

Your Boyfriend will need 25,000 or 41,000 to be eligable. When one interprets things one can view things differently. Why has he been seperated from his wife for almost four years and not taken steps to permanently sever ties with former spouse?

Procxessing times in Canada for an overseas parental sponsorship is two year and at least another three years from India but I would honestly expect another five years so your total processing time should be closer to seven years.

OK, THAT REALLY SUCKS!!! I UNDERSTAND THE INCOME PART, THAT CAN BE CHANGED, HE WILL NEED TO WORK HARDER THIS YEAR AND INCREASE HIS INCME. But, wow 7 year??? that is far too long!!! Can in that time, we apply for a visitor visa, so she can come here as a visitor and keep going back and forth, is that possible?

the granting of a visitors visa will depend on several factors -

1)Mom´s ties to home - she needs to prove she will go home at the end of her visit. If there is any doubt, they will say no to the visa
2)Mom is going to need to have a good reason to come in the first place and both Mom and son will need to show CIC how they intend to pay for her visit.
3) more often than not, CIC does not like people using a visitors visa to bypass the immigration/sponsorship process.

there is a line up at the compassion counter. Everyone has a mother, a sick mother, a widowed mother, a lonely father, an orphaned brother. Every family application has an element of humanitarian and compassionate consideration.

So, to be bluntly honest - your situation is not different enough to move your request to the front of the line. Sorry.

Humanitarian and Compassionate cases lke Sharon says need to make your mother more deserving then others. IF you can come up with lots of common sense reason to move her to the front of the line from within Canada you can try that route while she is in Canada.

Mother will need a real good reason for a CVV though.
