This Week’s Success Story: Settlement Reached at the Federal Court
We were retained by a client who had been unsuccessful with her permanent residence application to file an Application for Leave and for Judicial Review to challenge the refusal. We carefully analyzed her file and developed in depth legal arguments to support our position. Our arguments were successful and our client was granted a Judicial Review hearing. Before proceeding to the hearing, the Department of Justice, representing the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, agreed to settle our client’s case, set aside the refusal and re-open our client’s permanent residence application, without proceeding with a hearing! We are very pleased we could achieve this result for our client.
