Because of Immigration barier my fiance and I are not able to married fisicly, that's why I would like to ask can we do Proxy marriage. My fiance lives in Canada and I'm in US. After we have marriage sertificate my fiance can sponsor me in Canada.
do you have a u.s. passport? if not, get one. if so, then go to canada for a visit. get married while on the visit. then you are the wife. you cannot get married by proxy in illinois. can you in canada? why bother? go there to get married.
or have her come here for a visit to get married.
then once you are married, the issue is up to canadian immigration authorities to deal with. if you have not contacted a canadian immigration lawyer by now, you sure should.
Marriage by proxy is not a possibility in Illinois. Perhaps you can join your fiance in Canada and you can get married there.
This really sounds more like a question of Canadian law. As the other attorneys stated, you cannot do a proxy marriage in Illinois, so you or your fiance need to contact a Canadian lawyer to see what the marriage and immigration options are there.
Avvo is a U.S. website, so you will need to look elsewhere for advice about Canada.
