The Judicial Review process (JR) is used to ‘appeal’ a negative decision made by a visa officer on the grounds at set out in s.18.1(4) of the Federal Courts Act.
Generally, your application for a Judicial Review must be submitted within 30 days of the date of the decision that needs to be reviewed; it is essential that you do not miss any timelines. If you fail to file, you will lose your right at a second chance at a positive decision.
Your Immigration Lawyer for the Judicial Review will take care of the entire process for you, including filing an application for Leave with the Federal Court, and submitting, within strict timelines, the Applicant’s Record, Memorandum of Argument, Respondent’s Affidavits, Memorandum of Argument, and other essential documents in this administrative process. Your Immigration Lawyer will also make oral submissions to the Court at the JR Hearing on your behalf.
