Settlement at the Federal Court

Posted by admin - Bellissimo Law Group PC

Our office was approached by a client after their temporary resident visa (TRV) had been refused. They were hoping to challenge the decision to the Federal Court of Canada, as they felt that their TRV application was strong and covered the issues mentioned in the refusal letter. We assisted our client in filing an Application for Leave and for Judicial Review (AFLJR) to challenge the TRV refusal, and upon receiving the notes, it became apparent that the Officer who assessed the application missed key evidence and conducted a generic assessment.

With this in mind, we carefully crafted our legal arguments to explain the gaps in the decision-making process and findings, in addition to conducting legal research to support our position. Thankfully, after our arguments were filed, the Department of Justice (DOJ) agreed that our client’s case at the Federal Court was strong, and offered settlement! After discussing options with our client, the offer was accepted and the refusal of our client’s TRV application is being set aside for the application to be redetermined by a different Officer. We are thrilled to have been able to assist our client in achieving this excellent result, and wish them all the best!
