Hello all,

I was hoping to get some insight on people on a similar situation. My wife wants to sponsor her mother to Canada and needs me to co-sign in order to meet eligibility criteria.

I am honestly very uneasy about the 20 year period and would imagine I am not the only one. Is there anyone here that felt the same way and ended up co-signing? Anything in particular made you change your mind?

I have a great relationship with my in-law and have been with my wife for 4 years now. My MIL doesn't have a husband or dependents so she would be the only person I would sponsor. She lives with us and is actually a big part of our lives, helping around the house and taking care of with our child.
