Merits Review is when you seek review of a decision made by a government official on the basis that the decision does not have merit. This means that you are challenging the decision based on the facts of your matter.
When seeking merits review, a Tribunal will ‘stand in the shoes’ of the decision maker, and make its own new decision based on the facts before the Tribunal. We can help you ensure that you put the best case forward so that a Tribunal is more likely to decide in your favour.
If you have received a government decision that you are unhappy with, contact us and we can discuss the decision with you and together we can determine whether there may be grounds to appeal the decision through merits review.
