Specializing in All Types of Immigration Appeals Cases

    Immigration Appeal Services

    When it comes to immigration appeals, the process can be quite complicated. There are various types of appeals that can be filed, and each one requires careful planning and preparation. The impact of these hearings on the applicant and their family can be significant, so it’s important to get clear and honest advice about your chances of success. We have vast experience in all manners of challenging refusals, such as:

    Immigration Appeal Services

    A sponsorship appeal is an appeal by a Canadian citizen or permanent resident against the refusal of their application to sponsor a family member for permanent residence in Canada. The appeal is heard before the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) of the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB). You must file your notice of appeal within 30 days of receiving the decision from the immigration authorities.

    Federal Court Appeals

    Federal Court appeals can be filed for refused visa applications, Express Entry, or temporary residence applications like work permits, study permits, or visitor visa applications. These appeals must be filed within 15 days for decisions made in Canada and 60 days for decisions outside Canada.

    Refugee Appeals

    The Refugee Appeal Division (RAD) reviews cases of people who have had their refugee claims rejected in Canada. In some cases, the RAD may remit the case back to the Refugee Protection Division (RPD) for re-determination. Alternatively, the RAD may substitute its own decision for that of the RPD.

    Citizenship Appeals

    Applications for Canadian citizenship that have been refused by the citizenship department may be appealed to the Federal Court within 30 days. These appeals proceed as applications for leave and judicial review. 

    Residency Appeals

    Canadian permanent residents who have been found not to have met the residency requirement of being in Canada for 2 years out of 5, and have lost their permanent residence as a result, can appeal the negative decision to the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) within 60 days of the decision.

    Citizenship Revocation

    Permanent residents who applied for Canadian citizenship, but were rejected or had their citizenship revoked due to various circumstances, can respond or appeal the negative decision to the citizenship authorities.

    If you are seeking to appeal an immigration decision, it is essential to have a knowledgeable and experienced legal team in your corner. At Orcus Law LLP, we have successfully helped many clients navigate the complex appeals process.
