Immigration is a cumbersome process, with several intricacies and complexities lined along its way. With so many rules, regulations, and restrictions, spousal sponsorship applications can be difficult to handle. With the application procedure comes the emotional and financial stress associated with immigration, further adding on to the stress. In the rush to get their spousal sponsorship approved, people commit some avoidable errors that could lead to a refusal of the application and, sometimes, inadmissibility.

At EmPo Immigration Corp, we have faced a number of challenging situations regarding spousal immigration that could’ve been dodged had the client been mindful of a few details. To help you navigate through this process smoothly, here’s a list of the most common mistakes people make on spousal sponsorship applications that can be avoided.

1. Submitting outdated and incomplete forms
Many applicants are guilty of committing the error of not submitting updated forms. If you send outdated forms, your entire application will be returned to you. Make sure you check the immigration website for updates before you submit your application, you will save time. Another mistake many make is keeping blank spaces on the forms and not signing the forms. Unsigned and incomplete application will result in rejection, and you’ll have to start your application procedure all over again. 

2. Sending in incomplete and incorrect documentation
Several applications get rejected every year due to applicants submitting irrelevant, incomplete, and incorrect supporting documents. It is a common mistake that can be easily avoided by hiring a professional immigration consultant to review your application. They will scrutinize your documents and ensure that they have no errors or mistakes. This will save you a considerable amount of time and money.

3. Not disclosing and omitting relevant information.
Holding back crucial information or giving out wrong information can lead to not only a refusal of your application but also a declaration of inadmissibility. Disclosing selective details, either inadvertently or intentionally, can have negative repercussions and, sometimes, legal consequences. Steer clear of such mistakes by consulting an immigration professional about your case.

4. Using terms incorrectly.
Another standard error many applicants make is not understanding who is the sponsor and who is the applicant. Immigration Canada uses terms that are specific to their field, and they can be confusing. However, it is essential to resolve your confusion before you start filling out the forms. If the forms are filled out incorrectly, or by the wrong person, your application will be returned to you. To avoid this from happening,
