Immigration is a complex legal process. Many aspiring Canadian residents don’t get their application approved on their first try.
Our team of lawyers helps with denied visas, refugee applications, denied permanent residency applications, and removal orders. We work hard to pinpoint all the reasons why your application has been denied, then prepare a case that will help you win with the Immigration Appeals Division.
How do I appeal my immigration decision in Saskatchewan?
You have just 30 days from the date of denial to appeal your decision. Reach out to a skilled immigration lawyer, who will help you put your appeal together and get the case filed in a timely fashion.
There are many reasons why an application may be denied. Some common ones are that the immigration officers believed you misrepresented some fact on the application, the immigration officers suspect marriage fraud, or the immigration officers have reason to believe you violated your residency obligations.
We can help you find the proof that will allow us to show the IAD why you should be allowed to remain in the country.
Who is eligible for an immigration appeal in Saskatchewan?
Saskatchewan has a fairly forgiving immigration process, so if you’ve been denied in this province it’s important to seek the help of a lawyer who specializes in this area. Indeed, most people have the right to seek an appeal.
The right to appeal is only denied to people who have served a six months or greater sentence due to criminal charges, to people who are considered to be a national security risk, to members of the mob, and to people who are known to have violated international or human rights.
That means almost everyone who applies for residency in Canada in the first place has the right to try again.
How long does the appeals process take?
The process can last up to two years. After you file your initial appeal the authorities will have 45 days to respond. They will outline all the reasons why your application was denied, giving us the information we need to build your case.
The length of the appeals process works in your favor. You will not be deported while the decision is under consideration. You gain the time you need to create the strongest possible case. It’s important to work closely with your lawyer to ensure you don’t harm your case any further while your application is being considered.
