Negative decisions can and do happen. If you disagree with a negative decision, it is essential that you hire competent legal counsel and begin the appropriate appeal process in accordance with Canadian law, and that you do so in a timely manner. There are always certain specific time limitations that apply to every type of appeal. When exercising a right to appeal, if you do not follow the correct procedures within the established time limitation periods you may lose that right forever.
Jurisdiction for appealing certain types of negative decisions may rest with the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD). Conversely, other types of decisions are within the Jurisdiction of the Federal Court of Canada and procedurally must go through a process of judicial review.
It is important to consult with an experienced and qualified lawyer immediately after you receive a negative decision refusing your application in order to receive a comprehensive assessment of your legal rights. The following are examples of many of the legal services we offer for Individuals who have received a negative decision and/or who require representation at a Hearing, Appeal, or Federal Court matter:
