Q: I entered Canada using someone else’s passport. I tried to obtain a visa using my own passport but was denied three times. i have met a man who now wants to marry me. I am using my real name for all the documents except the marriage licence. The marriage office wanted to see my passport so I showed them the one I used to come to Canada. How can I get out of this mess?
A: Yes, it is a mess. For starters, it is never a good idea to continue with the lie. It is one thing to come to Canada using a fake passport but do not keep using that person’s name. It will only get you deeper into trouble. You have not yet married (a marriage licence application is not a marriage) so that is good. You must use your real name. The problem you face will involve using the proper application for sponsorship and then convincing immigration of your entry upon arrival. It can be tricky. I suggest you obtain a professional advice.
