I posted this on the UK forums but it involves Canada and anything that can help is greatly appreciated so...
I have a lot on my mind lately and nobody can give me any straight answers. Im currently in a position to go to Canada and its the best opportunity I have had. Im 17 years old and very indipendent. My parents however, disagree and they refuse to sign a letter of parental conformation that allows me (as a child under 18) to enter Canada. If I move out of the family home will I then become indipendent in the eyes of the law and not need that letter of conformation as my parents are not directly responsible for me anymore. If that is the case then I can rent for a month or two and get proof that I have lived on my own money and have survived on my own way. I have money to support myself sufficiently and I have everything prepared but constantly hit this barrier when my parents wont let me go.
Im desperate for an answer. I would really appreciate it if anybody can help.
When will you be 18?
I'll be 18 On February 14th. Im glad for any advice.
Are you going to school at this time, do you have a job lined up in Canada, and why do you want to move there?
I wanted to move there for along time. I have a friend there who has room on the top floor of his duplex and hes agreed to keep it for me if I can get there as he knows how much I want to leave for Canada. Iv saved all my life, never had a problem not spending money so thats not an issue.
I finish college this summer and have a part time job here that I dont particularly enjoy. I have job opportunities lined up for when I get to Canada and have sent my CV to several different companys who say they would gladly see me for an interview once I get there.
Have you looked into how much it costs to live in Canada? If I remember right at least 50% of your wages go to taxes.have you had trouble with your parents?
Yes Im aware of that. Iv done my research. Im not doing anything irrationally. Money isnt a problem. I was wondering wether I can go without the permission if I live alone in England for a couple of months, where I am not directly their responsibility. My parents and me are not always eye to eye. But im not leaving because of them. I just need their permission to go if I stay at home. I was asking if I dont live with them do I need their permission?
Were do you live now
I live with my parents and my older brother. But its not for me at all. Iv always been indipendant and they fail to see that. Im looking for an answer to finally get me out of here
What state are you in
I live in England. South West UK
I though you were in the states, if you live in england i would see no problem of you getting into Canada. Sit down with your parents and ask them again, If you have an adult sponser in Canada there should be no problem.
I'll look into that. I dont think my parents would agree to an adult sponser but if they dont have to agree then there shouldnt be much problem.
So your saying I just need a letter or something from an adult in Canada who Im living with to say that I'll be in thier care...My mate who im staying with is legally an adult. Thanks for the tips
I don't know for sure, but it may be something to look into, good luck to you, and let me know how things go.
i also would like some help and cant find any about canadian law.My wife and i seperated ten years ago but have recently reconciled,the trouble is i have been living abroad and not paid child support,but we have been given the opportunity to reunite,and for the ske of our children and each other would like to very much.But we cannot find any information as to how we can go about this,i left canada on a uk passport and apparently canada doesnt even know i left,so i am wondering if i can get back in on my uk passport and then we can work things from there.Do we stand a chance,can anybody please help?
