A negative decision on Family Sponsorship Application on medical grounds can be appealed at the “Immigration Appeal Division” (IAD). The refusal letter should be carefully reviewed and the concerns outlined by CIC strongly refuted with additional evidence and legal arguments.
IAD hearings are less formal than courts but most people choose to be represented. Their legal knowledge and experience of dealing with similar cases put representatives in a more equipped position to fight your corner both during preparation and at the hearing.
Medical inadmissibility can be argued against at the IAD based on humanitarian and compassionate grounds whereas the Board Member will need to consider the old and new evidence in the case before him/her.
