If a family member that you are sponsoring is faced with inadmissibility concerns when applying to enter in Canada, the consequences could be very serious. If you are a permanent resident, but an issue has been identified regarding your any of your responsibilities to maintain your status, you could face removal. If faced with such a scenario, the experienced team at Mansouri Firm can work with you to ensure that your situation is handled fairly. If your ability to remain in Canada, or the ability of a family member to enter Canada is jeopardized, you should not face this alone.
There can never be guarantees that an application will be successful, and even when successful, the immigration process doesn’t end once you have obtained status. There are responsibilities to uphold, and your ability to enter or remain in Canada may be taken from you due to any failure to comply. In many of these cases, remedies are available; the right of appeal being among the most powerful. Like the process of immigration to Canada in general, an immigration appeal hearing can be very complex. If your specific situation grants you the right of appeal, you also have the right to be represented. As Registered Canadian Immigration Consultants under Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC), Mansouri Firm can help you.
If you believe that a decision against you was wrong, and you have a right to appeal, you will be granted an opportunity to be heard. You can present evidence to prove your case. You can bring witnesses. You have a right to an interpreter if necessary. However, you will need to have an understanding of the law, and be able to show how the evidence that you’ve gathered supports your argument.
Another important point to note is that the appeal process is adversarial, which means that while you are permitted to argue your side, The Minister’s Counsel can also present evidence to back the original claim against you. They can question you, question witnesses (yours or their own), and make arguments against your appeal. In enlisting the help of Manouri Firm, you enlist representation that will help you gather any relevant evidence, prepare you for the hearing, and make sure that all important details are in order for you. Our experts understand the law, and will give you the honest help that you need to make your argument as strong as possible.
The immigration appeal process takes place under the purview of the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD). This is an administrative tribunal, which operates similarly to a court of law. Its purpose is to address removal orders, refusals of certain sponsored applications for permanent residence from members of the family class, decisions relating to failure to meet residency requirements, and other instances. For cases dealing with refugees, there is a similar, but separate tribunal that hears these cases. If the issues that has arisen leads to a decision stating that a claimant is not a protected person, this finding may be appealed to the Refugee Appeal Division (RAD).
If you are faced with a serious issue that threatens your own immigration status, or the status of a loved one you are sponsoring for immigration to Canada, please don’t face this alone. Mansouri Firm can help. An application rejection or a removal order decision is not always the end of the line. There are many situations where you may be eligible to appeal. Even simply understanding if/when you have a right of appeal can be complicated and complex. Oftentimes, permanent residents or refugees who have received a removal order from Canada have a right of appeal to the IAD or RAD and might not even know. With so much at stake, it is strongly recommended that you seek out the assistance of professionals who have been in this situation before. Our team has been there. We can help you.
