Hearings, Appeals, and Judicial Reviews


Certain immigration or refugee refusals can be appealed to the Federal Court by filing an application for leave and judicial review. Others may be appealed to the Immigration and Refugee Board’s Immigration Appeal Division or the Refugee Appeal Division. Still other cases may go to a hearing at the Immigration Division. These bodies provide individuals with the option to appeal certain decisions, including some refused refugee claims, removal orders, spousal sponsorships, and other matters.

We met Daniel Kingwell at a very crucial point in our long and most difficult immigration journey. We were completely taken aback by his humility, honesty and straightforward nature. It was refreshing to work with a lawyer who would not give us false assurances, ask for money or unnecessarily delay the proceedings, after all the bad experiences we had with a previous lawyer. It is Dan’s patience and constant support as well as that of his team that has provided my family the sanity and support required through this long journey to gain permanent residency. I wish no one ever goes through the struggles that we underwent with immigration, but if you ever do. I can only recommend one thing. Go to Daniel Kingwell, the best, honest and knowledgeable immigration lawyer.
