So here's our story... My same sex partner and I have lived together in Singapore for two years from Sep 2010 - Nov 2012. We were both foreign worker status at that time. I am a Canadian Citizen and she is from Philippines. During those two years we both established a rental agreement and a joint bank account. I came back to Canada in Nov 2012 because my work contract already ended and I cannot stay while she is still living and working in Singapore up to this day. I did not file my tax return in 2011 and 2012 because from my understanding I am only required to report my "Worldwide Income" if I lived in Canada during those period of time (Sep 2010 - Nov 2012). Income was only small around $20K CAD at that time. Now since we have lived apart from Nov 2012 - Present (Mar 2016), I have been filing my taxes as "SINGLE" from years 2013 - 2015 since we do not live in the same household anymore. If I declare my tax as "LIVING COMMON LAW" it would not be valid because she is living overseas and she does not have an SIN. We still communicate and I visit her every year and keep records of our conversations, trips taken together and financial support (remittance and joint bank statements) to support a genuine relationship by all means. My question is, would my Common Law sponsorship be rejected when CIC will look at my OPTION C and they will see that my current marital status is "SINGLE"? Can someone please reply? Appreciate it much. I am so confused whether to file for Common Law or Conjugal Partner.
