From Ukraine to Canada???

Hello

I am looking for someone who might have some experience in the
Canadian immigration process. I am a Canadian citizen wishing to marry a girl from Simferopol. I am going to Ukraine to marry her and I was wondering which method is better or easier for her.
To apply from within Ukraine or for me to send an application from Canada.
Any inside imformation would be most appreciated.

Thanks

Hi, where in Canada do you live? Best info you can get is from Canadian gov. Application to Sponsor a Member of the Family Class you can call them for info as well. Click on the blue link to sponsor a member of family.


Good luck and God bless.

Dobko did well answering the original question, can I hijack this thread and ask one of my own?

How do people do this whole "across the ocean" marriage thing? How does a Canadian know that the Ukrainian lady isn't marrying him just for the immigration? What about language barrier? I am not against such marriages, especially those that work out, but I am very curious. Please share your story / thoughts.

Are you aware of any statistics on this matter? I don't know why anyone would do research on this issue, but it would be nice to know. How many marriages like that (across the ocean) failed and compare it to the national averages. My guess would be that it may not stand out at all, but it is just a guess.

WOW, even 6 years ago 95% is crazy high. I guess my gut instinct was that it wouldn't work, hence the curiosity... thanks.

Would you be able to provide some details of the second point such as the author and what it was published in? I know quite a few people who would disagree vehemently. Are the stats from the first point available on the net?

Men looking for a Ukrainian wife because "American women are all bad" are not as likely, I think, to find a good match. They may have had unrealistic expectations to begin with.

To make a marriage work, I think one needs to respect the soul you are living with.
I think a person needs to respect themselves to, so many of the people I see have a self image problem and it looks like they feel they have to have someone so they'll be ok. Its like a mid-life crisis.

Another problem I see is the idea that a Ukrainian or Russian Woman is going to drop everything just to do the housework for you. Whereas a western woman is more likely to stand her ground and demand that the male helps or does his own.

V-G, I gotta throw in with you on this one. Conventional wisdom says "it's a con, it'll never work"...blah, blah, blah. But, I'd like to see stats. Stats that can be duplicated or at least corroborated.

I have run across contrarian opinions by an outfit called "Elena's Models" (a group out of Australia, believe it or not), but no numbers.

As for me, I'll likely follow singer Travis Tritt's advice: Next time I feel like getting married, instead I'll just find some woman who despises me and I'll buy her a house.
