Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
When your children were born were you a Canadian citizen?
Then the kids are also Canadian Citizens and you just need proof of citizenship for them.
Here is a link to the information you will need about that:https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/canadian-citizenship/proof-citizenship.html
Then you would get them passports.
Your spouse can sponsor you for PR status.
That would be the most simple and straightforward.
You don't need a lawyer but if you can easily afford one definitely retain one. It will not really speed up the process but it will make the process go more smoothly and if there is a problem then the lawyer will best be able to deal with it.
You cannot retain an immigration consultant. You need a lawyer licenced in Canada.
Does that help?
Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
The surest route for you is to do the spousal sponsorship.
You would need a job offer to do well for the express entry. But you can check the online assessment tool to check:https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/come-canada-tool-immigration-express-entry.html
Canada doesn't require renouncing other citizenship. They are already citizens and just need proof.
That's very sweet. Thanks very much.
