As discussed above, certain situations are appropriate for intervention from the Federal Court or submission to the Immigration Appeal Division. Typically, improper refusals or delays in immigration application processing may be appropriate for one of those options.
Immigration applications can be refused by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for a wide range of reasons, from failure of the applicant to achieve the required number of points to credibility concerns. The Cohen Immigration Law has dealt with most, if not all, of these possible scenarios, and can provide representation in the appeal of certain refusals.
Immigration processing delays also occur for a number of reasons. In most cases, the Visa Office processing the application is doing the absolute best they can to process the application in a timely fashion. Under certain circumstances, however, a Visa Office will have delayed far beyond the standard processing time. In those cases, it may be necessary to seek Federal Court intervention to mandate that the Visa Office process the application in a timely fashion.
If you have been subject to an improper immigration refusal or delay, please contact us directly to let us know about your case.
Reasons for medical, criminal, or other inadmissibility to Canada can be quite complex. Ultimately, if you are found inadmissible, you will be unable to visit or reside in Canada (with a number of limited exceptions for short-term visits). However, a determination of inadmissibility is subject to review and appeal. In addition, if you are properly found to be inadmissible, there are often ways to correct your inadmissibility. For example, if you are criminally inadmissible, you may be eligible to apply for "rehabilitation", which will allow you to be admitted to Canada. If you are experience problems or have questions about medical, criminal, or other inadmissibility to Canada, please contact us directly so that we can advise you accordingly.
