This Week’s Success Story: Parental Sponsorship Granted After Medical Inadmissibility Finding Was Overturned!

Posted by Fabiola Arevalo - Bellissimo Law Group PC

We represented a family in seeking to overcome a medical inadmissibility finding for a sponsored parent, having sought an early resolution with Counsel for the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. This was successful without having to wait for, and advance to a full hearing, which can take years. This was all the more important as the sponsorship application had originally been filed nearly 10 years ago. We worked together with the family providing guidance in securing necessary medical records and made submissions to the Minister’s Counsel seeking to have the Embassy Officers review their refusal. This was successful and the Embassy withdrew their original admissibility finding, overturned the refusal, and the applicant recently received her visa to travel and settle in Canada.
