Based on the hard work of immigration lawyers over many decades who have appealed cases to the Federal Court of Canada, immigration officers are now instructed that they must provide you with an ‘opportunity to respond’ when they have serious concerns relating to your application. This comes in the form of a Procedural Fairness Letter (PFL).
Many clients approach us timely when they receive a Procedural Fairness Letter but some try to reply on their own and then come to us after their case has been refused.
If you get a Procedural Fairness Letter, please contact us immediately. If there is very little time left, we can always ask for an extension of time.
How Can Jain Immigration Law Help You With a Procedural Fairness Letter?
We are particularly expert at responding to these letters and are aware of the court cases in this area and we know what type of evidence we need to reply professionally. Please note that we have only extremely rarely seen officers provide more than one opportunity to address concerns. In the vast majority of cases, this is your one chance to avoid a refusal, or worse.
Indeed, officers often not only refuse cases but also conclude that a misrepresentation has occurred. Many times, our clients have hired previous representatives who have submitted information and answered questions on forms inaccurately. If an officer determines that a misrepresentation has occurred, you could be barred from Canada for 5 years.
