Stories like these are unfortunately all too common. This is why it is so important to undergo the correct Canadian immigration processes the first time around. A qualified immigration lawyer can simplify the process and assist you in making Canada your forever home.
Getting started on your immigration journey can be stressful. The first steps are important in determining your chances of immigration success. It can be helpful to know that you are not going through the process alone. Working with an immigration lawyer will give you the best chance of submitting a successful application, and increase your chances of starting a new life in Canada.
Immigration lawyers and consultants share similar roles in representing clients when they come to Canada. The main way they differ is in educational credentials and the institutions that regulate them.
While all lawyers have an in-depth education about Canadian law, years of experience can make a huge difference to an immigration lawyer’s ability to represent your case. Attorney Dery has been practicing immigration law in Québec for almost 20 years.
While government processing fees in particular are subject to change at any time at the discretion of the Canadian government, your lawyer should be able to provide you with a rough estimate of the total cost of your application.
Canadim offers flat-rate contracts with milestone-based billing periods. That means that clients will not be charged for their communication with us. The billing periods are clearly explained in our service agreements, so you know exactly what you can expect from Canadim before each payment.
The more upfront about your profile you are with us, the better we will be able to estimate the total cost of your application, since you might require some services that are outside the scope of our standard service agreement.
With all of the paperwork involved in the process, it’s easy to make a mistake. Even a small oversight can cause unnecessary delays, or an outright refusal of your application. Mistakes can cost you time and money, so it’s worth it to get things done right the first time around. Once your application is denied, it is difficult to reapply, and your chances of being refused again are greater.
Only a lawyer can represent their client in federal court if there is an issue with an application. Having an immigration lawyer by your side can be a valuable asset in the event that complications arise during your application process.
The average rejection rate of Canadian immigration applications is 18.9 percent. According to a recent study, only ten percent of immigration applications submitted with the help of a lawyer are rejected. These numbers prove that your odds are significantly better with a lawyer on your side.
Unfortunately, immigration fraud is becoming increasingly common. In order to avoid this, we suggest always doing your research before agreeing to work with any individual or agency.
You should never agree to pay any kind of finder’s fee, even if you are promised an offer of employment upon arrival. Most Canadian employers will not hire someone who is outside of the country, so a job guarantee can be a red flag.
Frauds may entice you with promises of immigration success, but know that only immigration officers have the power to approve or deny an application.
