Success at Federal Court leads to Permanent Residency

Posted by admin - Bellissimo Law Group PC

We were initially approached by our clients, a family, who were refused their application for permanent residence based on humanitarian and compassionate (H&C) grounds. We assisted in challenging the refusal to the Federal Court, conducting research and carefully crafting legal arguments to explain why the Officer’s decision was unreasonable and should be set aside. After the matter was granted leave and a hearing was scheduled, the Department of Justice, who represented the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, offered to settle and send the application back for redetermination without proceeding to a full Judicial Review hearing! 

The clients then retained us to assist with the redetermination of their H&C application. After many months of patiently waiting and appropriately timed follow ups, we were ecstatic when our clients were invited to confirm their permanent residence from within Canada. We are so thrilled that they have finally become permanent residents in Canada, and that we were able to assist them in achieving this goal despite their initial refusal. We wish them all the best as they continue their lives in Canada!
