Spousal Sponsorship Application Appeal in Edmonton
Spousal Sponsorship Appeal can be a long process; you must take many steps to achieve success. The documentation needs to be accurate and the relationship explained to the officer's satisfaction. It is an incredibly frustrating process if not done correctly.
Your chances of success with your Edmonton Spousal Sponsorship Appeal go up significantly with the help of a professional from Preferred Immigration Services.
If you submit a spousal sponsorship application and it is denied, you can submit an appeal to the Immigration Appeal Division. The Appeal Division holds a hearing where you, the sponsor, will appear in person or on video and testify about your relationship. The Appeal might also have your spouse testify, either in person, by telephone conference, or video, if your spouse is outside Canada.
You and your spouse will have an opportunity to submit documentation to the Appeal Division to demonstrate the genuineness of your relationship for the Appeal Division to consider. In some circumstances, they grant the Appeal and the Board Members determine the decision by the immigration officer was unreasonable. In that case, your spousal sponsorship application returns to the Embassy or High Commission of Canada which processed your application, and it will be re-determined by a different officer.
If your spousal sponsorship application has been denied, please contact our office, and we will advise you based on your specific case. In some cases, we recommend appealing the decision.
