Hello lovely people :-),
to be honest, I have never done anything like that before, but I am assuming that there is a first time for everything. I really need your help, and I am not sure if this here is going to help me, but if so....I am more than greatful to everybody. Let me tell you why...
I met the love of my life in Canada, while being there for one year as an Au Pair.
As some of you probably have also used dating apps (like Tinder, bumble, and so on...), I never thought that it would actually really lead me to the man of my dreams.
When I started texting to my boyfriend on tinder, I never thought that it would be HIM. But then we met the first time, I just couldn't stop thinking about him. So we started dating and going out, we even went on vacation together, and let me tell you....I had the best time of my life with this stranger. Isn't that exactly what you want?
Everything went well, until we hit the date where my visa expired and I had to return back home to Germany.
Since then, we are trying to find a solution, how to be together again. The problem is, if I go back to Canada, I could only go as a visitor, which makes is hard, because I wouldn't be allowed to work, so how am I supposed to survive? The other thing is, we could go for a sponsorship as common-law-partners, but this is so complicated, because you need to proof so many things like...you are supposed to be together for at least one year and you are also supposed to be living together for at least one year. But how are you supposed to proof that? Cause honestly...my IEC working visa was valid for one year. We meet around 4 months after I arrived in Canada. I don't know about you guys, but when you meet somebody, you don't just leave everything behind you straight away and move together, because you wanna get to know the person first, right? So we are absolutely not able to proof that for one year.
We contacted an immigration lawyer, to find out what our options were, and he said...well get married.
Don't get me wrong, I really do love my boyfriend, but I don't wanna get married because of staying in a country. I wanna get married to him one day, because WE really want it, and there is no pressure to it.
So that's why I/we need your help. I need to go back to Canada, trying to make it work. We need to move together, pay bills together and show the government, that we are really in a common-law-relationship.
We can proof that for 6 months, but we would need 6 more months to proof it, and then we would be able to apply for a sponsorship. But it is hard, because I can't work, and my boyfriend is just not able to pay everything on his own, that's why I am kindly asking for your help. So please, if you have ever been in a similar situation like me, and you can just feel a little bit the way I am feeling, please help us.
