Do not allow a refusal of your application be the final decision. Appeal or seek judicial review to have your voice heard.
Do not settle. Appeal a decision with a team of lawyers.
Appealing a decision is stressful and often requires revisiting the initial case and looking for ways to improve the initial application for the decision-maker. At Federal Court, you are bound to the initial application and so it is incredibly important that the initial application was made properly.
Our team prides itself on our legal researching skills and ability to fight zealously on your behalf. We have had numerous positive outcomes, often resulting in a reversal or reconsideration of a decision. We specialize in the following divisions of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada:
- Immigration Division – Admissibility hearings and detention reviews
- Immigration Appeal Division – Spousal sponsorship refusals, removal orders, family sponsorship refusals, loss of permanent residency in Canada
- Refugee Protection Division – Refugee protection claims
- Refugee Appeal Division – Appeals of refugee protection claims that are refused.
Additionally, our office constantly pushes refusals to the Federal Court of Canada for Judicial Review where appropriate. This includes:
- Refusals of study permits, work permits, and visitor visa applications
- Refusal of spousal sponsorship applications made in Canada
- Refusal of humanitarian & compassionate applications for permanent residency
- Refusal of decisions made at the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada
Our goal is to win your case
We present your case in a way that resonates with the decision maker at the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada or the Justice at the Federal Court of Canada. We follow all procedures by presenting hardships, facts, and analyses that will not go overlooked.
For our team, winning differs from case to case, often resulting in the reversal of visa officer or Board Member decisions. This includes making arguments that permanent residency should be granted right away in certain cases.
Our legal team can ensure that you will be presenting the best possible case in your circumstances.
