Subject: hiring advice
  My husband and are fed up with trying to figure out how to go about things. We want to hire advice so that we don´t make any wrong moves. Any recommendations??

And my question is this... I´ve been reading up a little on this site. When a couple are applying for PR inland. How does that work?? How is the foreign side of the couple in Canada legally for 7 to 8 months or longer while waiting for a decision? And if they are here illegally or on a visitors visa how are they able to work and contribute to the marriage?

And next, if as a couple, in a genuine marriage (madly in love is how I like to call it), why wouldn´t the couple live together outside of Canada, in the home country of the foreign side of the relationship?

I´m prepared to live in a developing country, one of the poorest in th world, because I love him. The same way, he is prepared to one day leave the country he LOVES and is home to him because it will be best for our family.

That´s just my two cents.

And I hope to get a response as far as attaining advice.

The decision/advice has to be based on your own personal experiences and your partners own Visa Post.

Consider any marriage to be a relationship something like a fresh baked cake coming out of the oven, IT SMELLS GREAT.

Open the windows and let a breeze blow through while you go for a walk for about an hour and a half. When you return the cake is just a lump sitting on the conter top.

The marriage application and the chances of no interview and success is based on how your marriage/cake is decorated. It is all the tiny little details.

If you can swing it apply outside of Canada due to appeal provisions.

Actually the cake analogy makes sense.

But I´m still curious as to how a couple lives together in Canada while the PR application is being processed?

As far as our situation goes, we are in NO rush to apply for his PR. We´re more anxious to get my PR in his country, which will welome me with open arms. Sure, I´ll have to give up hot showers and the guarantee of a ´sit down´ toilet and I won´t be eating lettuce for a long while. But WHO CARES!?! I´ll be welcome. And decorating that cake with my husband. I just wonder how many wedding anniversaries and how many babies it will take to get it done.

Babies prove nothing. Nude photos of the two of you prove even less. Quality and not the lenght of the relationship is what counts.

Canada will welcome him with open arms IF you prove your relationship within approximately six months from all Visa Posts.

If you wish to move to him make sure you follow his countries rules.

In the men time enjoy not using a sit down toilet.

I think she was referring to the fact that the waiting period would be sufficiently long to have several children.

Jo... I think you are being pessimistic here.

File an outland application. (Inland takes forever and tehre is no appeal option) Make sure his address is shown as being back home - even if he is sitting beside you at the moment). You will have an answer about the first phase of your application (the sponsor side) in about 50 days. (the exact wait is on the CIC website). The file then goes to his home country. The wait could be 3-6 months - depending on that cake that Roy was talking about. Once his visitors visa is ending - he should go home. You might want to go with him for a visit. He cannot work while he is waiting in Canada but he certainly can take english classes or volunteer or simply be a great husband.

Once he has his approval, you both come back or you come back first... really does not matter as long as you were truly visiting. (CIC wants to be sure the Canadian is actually going to be in Canada with the new PR applicant)

I would make every effort to try this way first - you will miss the conveniences of home much more than you realize (trust me on that one)

Thanks Sharon. But I´m far from pessimistic. I´m not sure what I said to make you think that. But it doesn´t matter at all, I´ve been called worse.

Like I said, earlier on, we´re in no rush to apply for his PR in Canada. I was just just wondering as to whether its easier for a genuine relationship to prooved when a couple has lived together for several years and started a family versus as couple who has been married for 2 months.

Life won´t be terribe in his country. They may be SO incredibly poor BUT its one of the best in the world. I´m not afraid of following his countries rules or using a non sit down toilet. Because, Roy, when it comes down to it, I´m just a human being, I may have been born Canadian with white skin, but that doesn´t make me better than any one person in his country.

I´ll enjoy every moment of it. And when I miss the important things from home, I´ll just give them a phone call.

my calling you pessimistic is because you sound defeated before you try and I would like to offer you some hope and a little encouragement. If the relationship is legit... and you go about things in the right way - there is absolutely no reason why the approval should not come and within a reasonable amount of time.

I 100% agree with you that a great life can be found anywhere. It is all a matter of attitude.

awww... thanks Sharon!! Sorry I didn´t ´get it´. You sound like a super nice person.

Another question because I´m curious...ummm.. are people ACTUALLY sending naked pics of themselves to Immigration Canada? Is that for real? I wasn´t sure if he was being sarcastic or serious with me.

That´s just bizarre.

Sharon, would you recommend that we hire an immigration lawyer or consultant or simply do the paperwork ourselves? Is it possibe that when we´re living overseas we could have a canadian company dealing with our paperwork?

Thanks again!!

Yes, people have been known to send naked pictures to CIC. As you well know - there are lots of ways to show a relationship is valid. Naked pictures is not the best one.

If there is anything unusual about your relationship - significant age difference, different religions, children by a previous marriage, failed refugee claim, over stay of a visa, or anything else that is slightly outside the box... I would consider assistance.

Yes, you can have a Canadian company deal with your paperwork. At the risk of having everyone claim I am an employee of Roy - he has faithfully assisted here at Canada city for a very long time. His style is not always easy to understand but I have a lot of respect for his dedication to his clients. Where-ever you go for help, make sure they are well trained in Immigration matters and ask for references.

So are you an Immigration Consultant as well? I´m kind of hoping so.

After reading your last post, I feel that we will have no problem at all.

Above all else, we are humantarians, and we a truly needed in his country more then we are needed in mine.
