Successful Parental Sponsorship Appeal Before the IAD
Our firm successfully represented an Appellant before the Immigration Appeal Division whose parental sponsorship appeal was allowed on consent following an Alternative Dispute Resolution conference. Our team provided extensive evidence and submissions at the early resolution stage to argue that the Appellant and his wife were currently in a financial situation to sponsor the Appellant’s parents. Our team also argued that the other humanitarian and compassionate factors weighed in favour of the appeal being granted, as the Appellant, an only child, had a responsibility to care for his parents who were living on their own and apart from any other family members. Through this early preparation we were able to obtain a positive result for our client, as the Appellant’s appeal was allowed before proceeding to a hearing.
