Federal Court Appeals
The types of decisions that are often appealed to the Federal Court include any kind of refused visa application, permanent residence applications like the Express Entry, or temporary residence applications like work permits, study permits, or visitor visa applications. These can be appealed with 15 days for decisions made in Canada and 60 days for decisions outside Canada.
Mandamus AppealsAn example of where you can do a mandamus appeal is if the immigration authority is delaying the processing of your immigration application for no good reason. Our office can help you to bring a mandamus appeal to the Federal Court, asking the court to order the immigration authority to fast-track the processing of the application.

The RAD will review the evidence and either remit the case back to the Refugee Protection Division (RPD) for re-determination or substitute it with their own decision.
Citizenship Appeals (Including Revocation)
Permanent residents who applied for Canadian citizenship and were rejected or have had their Canadian citizenship revoked through certain circumstances can respond or appeal the negative decision to the citizenship authorities.

Immigration Appeal Success Stories
I used Matthew Jeffrey’s legal services for my husband’s appeal process and I am so glad I did! I wish I would have done this from the beginning of the sponsorship process but I’m happy I had the team on my side when it mattered. Absolutely professional, courteous and realistic (about options, upfront about costs and realistic total cost). They were by my side, advising me throughout my appeal process and hearing. Highly recommend!

I am extremely pleased with Mr. Jeffery’s expert handling of my appeal to retain my permanent residence status for humanitarian and compassionate reasons. Mr. Jeffery was referred to me by a family friend who spoke very well of him. My case was not an easy one, but Mr. Jeffery skillfully presented its merits before the immigration board which subsequently decided in my favor. I can now join and live with my wife and children in Canada. My family and I are immensely grateful to Mr. Jeffery and his staff. They are very professional and experienced. We highly recommend Mr. Jeffery.
