dont even ask about my hubby's interview...
they ladies were nice and polite,
they asked simple questions like what is your childrens bday?
when did you come to canada?
how do you like canada? what do you like about the city you lived in?
why did you come back?
when did you get married?
nothin specficlly about me just simple known questions......
they were more focused on his coming back to pakistan situation...
it was in english the interview and she was a ghori i think there were 2 of em....
at first his interview was @ 10:30 but they called him in @ 1 and the other thing was that after all the doc, picz, etc he provided the him, they didnt even bother looking at it and said that we do believe that you married with kids and its not a fake...she said "there is one thing holding you from getting a visa at the moment and that is that Canada has a warrant of arrest on your name because you didnt give proof when you left Canada in 2005 so there was a warrant for your arrest and you were considered a fugitive and until this matter is cleared we cannot issue a visa..."
my husband then said that he applied for refugee claim but took the claim back in an interview with a immg officer just a few day befo we got married in april of 2005 and the officer said to fill out an application for withdrawal "notice of no intention" and he has to leave within 15 days....nothin about giving proof..and that how can i be a fugitive when just last yr you guys requested a rcmp police clearance and i have provided you with that ..how can i get a police clearance with that warrant in my name.....she didnt have an answer
well my husband didnt have a passport and so he traveled on a traveling doc and so he left within the time frame and the traveling document and proof of ticket and boarding pass is with the embass giveing them proof that he did leave the country when he was suppose to ...so the immg officer wrongfullly send out a warrant for his arrest and any other doc that they did send didnt apply to him coz me and him was not in the country we went to pak for our valima.....
so...now they will contact the imm judge to start a correspondence with him....
then my husband asked what is the time process for this to get done? she responded 2-3 years so relaxe and repaint your walls again coz you will be waiting for a while.....ufff...pissing me off...if you got all the docz saying he left canada when told to...what else do you need to statify your doubt.....
so i called the mp in my area....he said he will find out about the situation...
called me back the same day after 3-4 hrs and said that it will not take 2-3 yrs prob most likely 1 yr and he would have to prob do a "auth to return to canada" applica and just wait til feb for anything from the embass if not then i would have to call him for a follow up ....
so i am sooo sooo sooo soo pissed , stressed, and i dont know wat else....
i havent seen my husband in 2 yrs neither did my kids and my youngest one didnt even see his father....now another 1-2 yrs to wait til it solves up and 1-2 yrs of me being a single mother with a job ...
Sorry about this result on your interview! This is the last thing anyone wants after having to wait so long. It is up to a visa officer's discretion to ask for ARC or allow it without one. I guess his visa officer wants to see the ARC. As far as I know ARC application takes about a year for them to approve or deny it.
Do you know if the refused the case or if they will keep it open until your ARC application is decided? Either way you will need to get the best lawyer for this. IF refused then appeal as it seems like you have good case if you have strong evidence that he met the officer before he left and informed them. You can ask your lawyer to request the judge that the queue of the application be kept where it is instead of putting you at the back of the files when appeal is allowed ( I have seen some cases on canlli.org where they did it to save time for more wait in queues after the appeal is allowed).
It takes about a year for the full hearing after the appeal anyway so hopefully by that time you will have a positive decision on your ARC application (in sha Allah).
Here are the things they take into account for ARC apps:
-Your reason for returning to Canada?
-Why were you ordered to be removed? ( Exclusion or deportation order)
-What silly advice did you take?
-Are you sorry for your actions?
-What degree of responsibility you are willing to accept?
-How long did you drag out the process of your removal? ( after order was issued for you to leave)
-Did you leave Canada at your own expense?
-Did you make the Canadian government pay for your flight?
inshaAllah you will win the appeal! Be strong sister this time will pass too!
Finally by the grace of ALLAH the wait is over Alhamdolillah. My wife got a letter today to send her passport for VISA STAMP. This happened after a very painful and long wait of 26 months exactly. Please do pray for me that everything goes fine from now on onwards. May Allah bless the rest of the members of this forum with such good news, Ameen !
Thanks everyone for all the support and encouragement through these difficult and painful period.
Hope the rest goes quickly now.
Finally good news after a long time. This forums's been very quiet lately for PPRs etc.
