In several countries like UK, U.S., Canada and Australia sham marriages are now considered as a crime under immigration department. A general rule of two years remained in wedlock is mandatory to follow before normalization.

Often respondents and foreign applicants arrange a "marriage of convenience" - that is to say, a marriage or common-law whose sole purpose is to enable the sponsored spouse or partner of immigrate to several states.

Agents of CIC Canada are specially trained to recognize genuine immigration applications and they know how to detect marriages of convenience. They use several methods to uncover fraud on marriage, including verification of documents, site visits and interviews with respondents and applicants. Citizens or permanent residents of Canada considered accomplices of a marriage of convenience for immigration purposes can be charged with a crime.

Respondents must meet the financial needs of their spouse or three years, even if the relationship fails. If your spouse is receiving social assistance benefits, you will have to repay and you can not sponsor anyone else until the debt is repaid. Sponsorship is a binding financial commitment with the Government of host country.

immigration department of several countries recognizes that even a genuine marriage may fail. However, if you contract a marriage of convenience and that you come to even Canada as an immigrant, measures of enforcement may be taken against you and the Border Services Agency of Canada could deport you.
