What can you do if your Canadian immigration file or citizenship application is refused? Do you feel like giving up?

Why not appeal against the decision rejecting your case? Take action now!
Here are some examples:
- Citizenship – negative decision by judge;
- Business Immigration refusal – Investor – Entrepreneur – Skilled worker;
- Entrepreneur in Canada – failure to meet conditions;
- Permanent Resident – failure to maintain residency requirements;
- Permanent Resident Card (Maple Card) – refusal to issue or to renew;
- Permanent Resident – criminality problems;
- Sponsorship refusal;
- Humanitarian application – refusal;
- Medical refusal.
Let us examine your case in detail. We will advise you of the best strategy for your circumstances. We may conclude that the Canadian decision-maker appears to have made important legal errors or misunderstood key facts. If so, we will suggest you appeal the decision immediately, even if you could possibly make a new application at some future time.
It is possible we may conclude together that your particular situation is not well suited to an appeal. If so, the wise choice may be to make a new application. Engage the services of Fogarty Law Firm for the new application and we will give you the necessary counsel to meet the legal requirements for your case.
An appeal process can seem very confusing. In fact, there are different types of “appeals” in Canadian Immigration and Citizenship law. Let Fogarty Law Firm explain clearly the type of appeal open to you, whether at the Immigration Appeal Division of the IRB, or at the Federal Court of Canada, or beyond. You will understand the nature of your participation in the proceedings, possible outcomes, and the likely time delays. The fees and costs will be made clear to you. There will be no nasty surprises. You can count on Fogarty Law Firm as your legal partner to assist and advise you every step of the way!
Depending on the type of appeal necessary for your case, you may have to appear before a tribunal to testify. But even if it is normal to testify for your type of appeal, it may be possible to settle your case without any formal testimony. Also, certain types of appeals either do not use personal testimony or do so only very rarely.
If you are required to testify, Fogarty Law Firm will review your entire case with you in detail. We will help you practice responding to questions so that you will be able to answer truthfully and confidentially in court. We will meet with you and your witnesses personally or, if any of your witnesses are outside Canada, by telephone conferences. You will be ready for any eventuality at your appeal hearing.
We recognize that starting an appeal is a major decision. However, it is very important to understand that the legal delay in which to appeal your negative Immigration or Citizenship decision is very strict. It is extremely difficult to obtain an extension of that legal delay. Do not let your opportunity to appeal slip away!
Not at all! Fogarty Law Firm can take over your file at any point you wish, even if you already started your appeal. And if you retained someone to help you, you are not obliged to continue with the same individual.
