Toronto Spousal Sponsorship Lawyer: Immigration & PR Application Service Launch

As the IRCC shifts to online applications for spousal sponsorship visas, Ivan Steele Law (647.342.0568) announces a new application support service.

Ivan Steele, who specializes in family, gay and lesbian, and immigration law, now offers consultations and legal support to couples applying for spousal sponsorship visas.

The announcement coincides with the latest data from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), which revealed that the number of people immigrating to Canada through spousal sponsorship is set to reach an all-time high in 2022, with a projected 8.2% increase over 2021. Despite the growing number of applicants, the IRCC reports shorter processing times thanks to the new online application system.

To help candidates navigate the new process, Ivan Steele offers legal guidance for both inland and outland sponsorship applications. The lawyer explains that the recent changes to the application process had no effect on the eligibility criteria for permanent residence.

As such, both spouse and common-law partner sponsorship applications can be made. Once submitted to the IRCC, the application will be reviewed to assess whether the relationship in question is real and whether the marriage was entered into with the primary goal of obtaining Canadian permanent residence. As this evaluation requires the submission of evidentiary documents, and, at times, even legal submissions, Ivan Steele can help couples present their relationship in a way that meets the spousal sponsorship legal criteria.

The practice takes a strategic approach to ensure all evidence, legal submissions, and application documents are submitted without errors, thus minimizing the chances of denial and delays.

About Ivan Steele Law

Based in Toronto, the practice provides legal assistance for several Canadian immigration programs, including Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker, and Express Entry. With the recent opening of his law office in Puerto Vallarta, Ivan Steele became the first lawyer to offer Canadian legal services to the growing Canadian ex-pat community in Mexico.

“When you work with Ivan Steele, you will work with a Canadian lawyer who is focused more on building warm, lasting relationships than in clearing cases from the dockets,” said a spokesperson. “He understands that the immigration process is emotionally trying, mentally draining, and even physically tiring, which is why he does everything in his power to ensure that your case moves forward as seamlessly as possible,” they added.
