Subject: Landed-immigrant divorce information
  Hi,
I need some advice getting a divorce.
I need to explain the full case for that. Here are the details.
Me and my husband have landed in Canada just two months back on point system. We had to get married in India to meet the total required points for immigration to Canada. My husband was the principal applicant while I was the dependent.
Now I am going back to India as I want to gain some more expereince in my career out there. In the meantime I also want to start my divorce proceeding.
If someone could help me to find out after how much time can we apply for divorce? Also, how should I go about it and will it jeopardize my citizenship if I start divorce proceedings before I get permanent citizenship?
I also want to know that if we stay away for one year now, will I be able to get divorce from India only? Please guide me regarding this.
Awaiting an early reply.

Hi Anu,

The way you have explained your case it just seems like a "marriage of convinience". I hope you did not get married just to get Canadian PR.

Anyway now that you are PR it is your responsibility to maintain your PR status. To comply with your residency obligations you must accumulate two years of physical presence in Canada in every five-year period.

Wait till you get the SIN card and PR card, then simply leave him and go back. Don´t worry about divorcing him here. You can do it in an Indian court. Get a no contest divorce and much later, when you have gained the much needed Indian Experience (without which your employability drastically diminishes in Canada), you can use the Indian divorce as evidence for your status in case you fall madly in love.

Thanks Ano.
Your advice is heartening.
I already have the SIN and PR card with me.
But isn´t getting a divorce in India more troublesome?? i couldn´t understand the last part about "you can use the Indian divorce as evidence for your status in case you fall madly in love". When should i use this evidence?
