    "It was time, I was getting married and I wanted my In Canada spousal sponsorship application to be handled by professionals. After all this was the first task where I wanted to impress upon my fiancé at that time. While we were preparing for our marriage, we had hired Stepwise and they made the process seamless. We had no hiccups in the entire process. Timely execution and excellent follow up by this team resulted in Permanent residence status for my spouse in flat 6 months. The first step they did was checking eligibility, and subsequently it was just collecting documentary evidences and putting up an application."
