Citizenship Refusals

Are you a permanent resident?

Is your citizenship refused?

At Prestige Law we can help!

If your application for Canadian citizenship is refused, you may file an appeal to seek judicial review of the decision by the Federal Court of Canada. The first step in the appeal process involves filing a Notice of Application to the Federal Court within 30 days of receipt of refusal from Citizenship. This timeline is very important and must not be missed.

Depending upon your particular situation as to why your citizenship application was refused, a new application for citizenship may be the best option. This can occur when you were not actually in Canada for three years, depending on the legal test applied by the Citizenship Judge.

You can get in touch with our Citizenship experts. They review the decision and advise on the strength of a Federal Court challenge.
