Steps when you hire us
Canada’s immigration rules and regulations change regularly and the systems in place are quite complex – it is our job as immigration lawyers to ensure that we decipher the processes for you, assist you and represent you in navigating through the immigration world.
Clients living outside of Canada or outside the province
We can help you if you currently live outside of Canada or in another province, like many of our clients. You do not need to be physically present for us to work on your file, since a great deal of our work is done by email, phone, scan, fax, registered mail and Skype.
Our office uses advanced communication tools to increase our ability to meet the needs of our clients. Of course, our office ensures that we always meet the bar association requirements to properly retain confidential and safe records for our clients as well as to provide timely and effective lawyer-client communication.
With respect to lawyer fees – a lawyer is unable to quote you specific legal fees without first consulting with you to understand the details of your case as well as the different issues revolving around your application. This is our ethical obligation – obtaining all the information from you to be able to adequately quote you fair legal fees which match your specific case.
We do not charge by the hour, but instead work on a flat-fee basis. The entirety of the legal fees will be outlined in a retainer agreement (contract). If your matter with us lasts months or years (some cases do), the legal fees will remain the same as long as we are dealing with the same application without major complications.
We accept the following types of payments:
- Credit Card
- Cheque (Canadian)
- INTERAC E-transfer
- Wire Transfer
- Direct Deposit (RBC)
