During your research of the Canadian immigration process, you will need to make a key decision that can affect your Canadian immigration experience: should you hire an immigration lawyer, or should you go it alone?
Here are the “Pros and Cons”:
An immigration lawyer will handle your application and keep you informed throughout the process, which will remove some of the stress and worry you’ll be facing. In addition, your immigration lawyer is bringing their own knowledge and experience to your immigration application and setting you up for the best chance of success.
While an immigration lawyer cannot guarantee your immigration application’s approval, your lawyer can help you avoid delays and the denial of the application in a couple of easy ways:
The Government of Canada has recently launched an online visa application service that promises to help streamline the visa application process and make applying for a Canadian visa easier than before.
But is using such a program wise?
The chances of making a mistake on your online application are the same as making a mistake on a written application, and the online application does not leave room for additional explanations of your work experience or language proficiency if necessary or applicable.
When in doubt – consult an immigration lawyer. You don’t have to hire him or her. But chances are the pros outweigh the cons.
