Litigation / Hearings & Appeals - Sherritt Greene

Complicated Setbacks Can Derail Your Immigration Dreams

Even in the best of cases, the process of immigrating to Canada can be lengthy, and the laws and procedures can be confusing and complicated. Sometimes, roadblocks appear on the path to citizenship, or other setbacks put your immigration dreams at risk.  These hurdles can include an outright refusal of your application. In these instances as well as others, the immigration process may involve an appeal to overturn the unfavorable decision, require an interview with immigration officials, or require attendance at hearings or court other proceedings. In these cases, it is that much more important to have a skilled immigration lawyer who can help identify the best options for you, assist you in preparing the appropriate documentation, and give you the best chance of a successful outcome.

Immigration Hearings, Rules, and Procedures Can Be Overwhelming and Confusing

Immigration litigation may include hearings, appeals, or proceedings in Federal Court. The litigation process can be intimidating and daunting to the uninitiated and inexperienced, and retaining a qualified lawyer with experience in immigration litigation can make all the difference for those pursuing their Canadian immigration dreams.

A good immigration lawyer can assist you with all of the following:

  • Appeals – you have the right to appeal decisions such as denial of family class, loss of permanent resident status, and removal orders.
  • Judicial Review – you may also apply to the Federal Court of Canada to appeal unfavorable decisions of Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).
  • Mandamus – you can file suit against CIC in any case of undue delay
  • Detention Review – those arrested are entitled to review of their case before the Immigration Division within 48 hours.
  • Admissibility Hearings – The Canada Border Services Agency can request that the Immigration Division hold a hearing to determine if you may stay or enter Canada.
  • Criminal Rehabilitation – Criminal convictions typically mean that you are ineligible to enter Canada until you are rehabilitated. A good lawyer can explain this process and represent you at the rehabilitation hearing.
  • Permanent Residency Issues – If there is a charge that you have not met residency requirements, a lawyer can represent you and provide counsel on your permanent resident status

If your application has been refused, if you are facing the prospect of an interview, hearing or other proceeding with immigration officials, or if you have any other issues or concerns regarding your immigration status, contact an experienced immigration lawyer who will take the time to get to know you, understand your objectives, discuss available options, and recommend the best course of action for you.
