This Week’s Success Story: Permanent Residency At Last!
We were first approached by a client several years ago following numerous refusals for a visitor visa in Canada. Our client wanted to challenge the most recent refusal to the Federal Court, as there seemed to be a barrier of which they were unaware preventing them from being approved. After challenging the refusal to the Federal Court, it became apparent that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) had relied on undisclosed allegations concerning the client which turned out to be false. The case settled without a fight from IRCC, and our client was granted a visitor visa.
Wanting to remain in Canada permanently, our client filed an Express Entry profile, but unfortunately did not obtain an Invitation to Apply. As fate would have it, while in Canada our client met, formed a relationship with, and eventually married a permanent resident of Canada. Our client returned to our office for assistance in preparing an Application for Permanent Residence supported by an Application to Sponsor and Sponsorship Undertaking. After diligently preparing the application and taking care to explain our client’s immigration history, we were thrilled to learn that our client’s application was approved! We are pleased we were able to assist our client in achieving this excellent result, and we wish them and their family all the best!
