How long does an appeal take in Red Deer?
The entire process can take up to two years, but if you’ve got a removal order or have a denied visa application then you’ll need to move fast. You have just thirty days to file your appeal.
The government will then prepare a detailed record of why your application was denied or why they are seeking to remove you from the country. Getting this information is vital as it is the key to preparing a winnable countercase.
Your case may be selected to Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), which will happen 6 to 9 months after your appeal is filed. This can lead to a faster resolution, but if the case doesn’t resolve in your favor you’ll move on to a hearing. Typically the hearing is 9 months to one year after the failure of ADR.
What are the chances of winning an immigration appeal in Red Deer?
Everything depends on the specific facts of your case. We will make every effort to work with you and to give you your best chance to present your case in its best light. Everything from your conduct while in Canada to your foreign travel record can have an impact on the way your case progresses.
