In this episode we provide an overview of family law issues that immigrants and their Canadian sponsors should be aware of, inlcuding the recognition of foreign marriages, how divorce works, threatening to have an ex-spouse deported and the difference between common-law and marriage and getting a marriage anulled.

Ari Wormelli practices family law with YLAW Group.

The topic is relevant to Canadian immigration law because sponsored spouses are statistically much more likely to get divorced than the general Canadian public.
