Why Do You Need an Immigration Lawyer
to File Your Appeal?
The appeal process is not just about filing documents, it requires proving to the appellate authorities that a procedural, administrative, or assessment mistake has been made in your application. Moreover, it must be shown that you have been prejudiced as a result of the decision.
In some cases it may be necessary to show that your personal safety, life, and livelihood may be in danger if you are removed from Canada.
These are all subjective assessments that an appellate court must decide. It takes an experienced Toronto immigration lawyer to present the facts accurately and in the right context.
According to Canadian immigration law, only a registered lawyer can file an application before federal Canadian courts on your behalf.
