Who is a common law partner?
Sponsoring dependent children
Children who meet both of the following criteria are considered dependents:
- They are under the age of 22
- Not married or living in a common-law relationship
- Individuals have relied on their parents for financial help before the age of 22 since they cannot work due to a mental or physical disability.
- Your dependent kid, with the exception of age, must maintain these qualifications while your application is being processed. Therefore, considering these scenarios, if a child above 22 qualifies to be dependent, you can sponsor him/her.
Sponsoring your spouse and your child
In order to sponsor your spouse and your child:
- You will list your spouse or partner as the principal applicant and the child as a dependant on the application if you sponsor them and their child or a child you have had together.
- If the sponsored child has a child of their own, you must list the grandchild on the application as a dependent.

- Valid medical records
