Exclamation Exclusion orders - tips, comments, anyone?

Hi,

I'm interested if anyone here has any experience with challenging / overcoming exclusion orders.

I was ordered to leave in March 2002, I first visited Canada in 1998. Between 1998 and 2002 I was a visitor to Canada almost continually... left for a few months here, a few there, always coming back as a visitor.

I was being supported by my de-facto partner, an American citizen who ran a US business from Canada in order to be with me (I can't enter the US... long story). We rented and shared an apartment there. Due to extreme circumstances, we also "adopted" a teenage "son"... he was placed with us by Social Services as an alternative to a foster home, and he's been living with us for 18 months. He's very much a de-facto family member and we love each other heaps.

On my last entry to Canada in March 2002 I was issued an exclusion order. The only substantial reason given was that I "must" have been working in Canada because it was not possible to spend all these years without doing so. The real reason, of course, was because they thought I was spending too much time in Canada as a visitor to be "acceptable", and any excuse would do.

I returned to my end of the world (I'm Australian) and worked - in the IT industry, my field. But of course now it's almost 8 months later, and I want to see my family in Canada. The separation is already tearing us apart... it would be awful for all of us to miss spending Christmas together, and my "son" is growing up so fast...

So I'm interested in making an appeal to either overturn the order or at least allow me to visit for a few weeks. What I'd like to know is if anyone has any suggestions, tips, experience, comments... ANYTHING.

I'd basically like to know whether I stand a chance in hell of being approved, and what I can do to help those odds.


Thanks everyone...

It is not the problem you'll find a solution for in this forum. You need to
talk to good immigration lawyer.
