Canada is a mosaic of cultures, and this country is truly enriched by our open immigration and refugee protection policies.
The primary focus of my immigration practice is family reunification, such as spousal sponsorships (including married and common-law spouses) and parent & grandparent sponsorships. Certain spouses may also qualify for an open work permit, which would allow them to work pending a final decision on their permanent residence application.
In addition to family class sponsorships, I also assisting clients make their temporary stay permanent through Canada's Express Entry system (e.g., Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Workers Class, Federal Trade Workers Class, and the Ontario Provincial Nominee Class).
The level of my involvement can vary:
a one time consultation,
provide ongoing legal advice (on an "as needed" basis), or
I also represent clients that have had their applications rejected. Examples include appealing a finding of ineligibility to sponsors someone under the family class, appealing a removal order, and appealing a loss of permanent residences status. My immigration litigation practice consists of:
appeals before the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) of the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB); and
Judicial reviews before the Federal Court.
I also offer my legal research services to other immigration lawyers.
