Experienced Vancouver Federal Court Lawyers
If you have received a negative immigration decision, you may pursue judicial review in the Federal Court. At Embarkation Law Group, our experienced lawyers help clients pursue applications for leave and judicial review, as follows:
- Application for leave: In order to obtain judicial review of an immigration decision, you will first need to submit an application for leave, demonstrating that you have been aggrieved by a final decision of a government agency and that you have an arguable case.
- Judicial review: If your application for leave is granted, you will have the opportunity to present your case to the court. If the court believes there was a legal violation, charter violation or procedural unfairness, your case will be redirected for a new determination.
If you are entitled to a hearing on your case before the Immigration Division or Immigration Appeal Division, you must pursue that option before going to the Federal Court. If you get a negative decision at the hearing or appeal, then that decision may be reviewed by the Federal Court.
Offering Skilled Representation by Qualified Lawyers
Embarkation Law Group is made up of professionally qualified lawyers. While immigration consultants who are not lawyers may represent clients in many types of immigration proceedings, only a lawyer can represent you in Federal Court or any other judicial proceeding.
One of the major benefits of retaining a lawyer to represent you in an immigration matter is that, if judicial review is required, your representative will already be familiar with your case.
