Immigration Issues/IMM 5406


Hi Roxanne, another question for you:

Couple married, wife Canadian, moved home to Canada, husband still working in States, wife sponsoring him to join her.  

He has no children, she has four adult children, all independent, all Canadian.  Do her children count as HIS family in the matter of IMM 5406, Additional Family Information form?  Or does it only apply to any children who are not already Canadian?  Or only HIS children from before the marriage, which there are none?

Thanks, again!  :-)

Hi Sonia,

Technically, they are considered his step-children so should be listed on this form.  But that's it as they are all Canadian citizens and beyond the age of dependency.
