Need a trusted Family Sponsorship Lawyer in Ottawa or Toronto?

Choose TDJ Law for expert guidance on Family Class Sponsorship in Canada. Whether you aim to sponsor a spouse, partner, parent, or child, our lawyers will ensure streamlined processing, both domestically and abroad. Entrust your family's future with TDJ Law, where your reunification is our priority.

Spousal Sponsorship

At TDJ Law, we simplify the two-step spousal sponsorship process for you. First, we assist Canadian citizens in obtaining sponsorship approval. Once secured, we then guide your foreign spouse or partner throughout the permanent residency application.

Common-Law Partner Sponsorship

Trust our professionals for expert guidance on common-law sponsorship in Canada. We understand and value all relationships, whether opposite or same-sex. If you've been in a committed, marriage-like bond for at least a year, with minor breaks, we're here to help you and your partner overcome any challenges you may face throughout your journey. With TDJ Law, every relationship counts.

Conjugal Partner Sponsorship

A conjugal partnership describes two individuals in a relationship similar to marriage, yet without a legal union or a year's cohabitation, often due to significant external challenges. At TDJ Law, we possess the expertise to traverse the intricacies of such partnerships, ensuring your immigration needs are handled with precision and care.

Sponsor Your Children

If you're a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, you can bring your foreign-born dependent child to Canada with our expert guidance. A dependent child is typically under 22, single, and without a common-law partnership, whether biologically yours or adopted. Entrust TDJ Law with this pivotal journey for a smooth transition to Canadian shores with our comprehensive immigration expertise.

Sponsor Your Parents

TDJ Law will help your parents or grandparents secure their permanent residency in Canada with seamless efficiency. With this status, they'll enjoy indefinite residence, employment opportunities, educational pursuits, and access to essential medical care. The two-step sponsorship application process starts with securing your approval as a sponsor. Leave the unity of your family to the dedicated team at TDJ Law.

Undeclared Family Sponsorship

Family members include your spouse, common-law partner, dependent children, and their dependent offspring (grandchildren). Omitting to provide essential information or failing to mention a family member in your application classifies them as 'undeclared'.
