Questions To Ask a Toronto Immigration Lawyer

Questions for Immigration Lawyer

Finding a good immigration lawyer is tough. While we are definitely out there, so are immigration lawyers that are not-so-great. When looking for an immigration lawyer in Toronto to help you with all of your immigration needs, you need to do your research and ensure you ask all of the right questions. We’ve put together five key questions that you should ask, and that any good immigration lawyer in Toronto should be able to answer.

Questions To Ask a Toronto Immigration Lawyer

How will you contact me, and how frequently? Immigration applications can take a very long time to process, but you should never feel as though you have been forgotten about. If you have a question, your immigration lawyer should always seem available, answer your calls, answer your e-mails and provide you with updates when applicable.

  • Do you have referrals or references? Immigration lawyers, like many service professionals, should have many former happy clients. Keep in mind that legal services are often very confidential, but an immigration lawyer may have plenty of thank you letters or testimonials that they can provide you with.
  • Do you think my case will be a success or a failure? A good immigration lawyer has years of experience and resources to draw upon and will be able to give you an honest answer about what to expect with your immigration case. A lawyer should never guarantee anything, and if they do – something illegal might be going on
  • Who will be representing me? If you find your immigration lawyer through their advertising, you might notice a lawyer speaking television or a photo in an advertisement – but that does not mean this is the lawyer who will be representing you. Many of these lawyers have a team of lawyers working for them, and you are free to ask if who ever is representing you has the proper qualifications and experience.
  • What will I be paying? There is no need for an immigration lawyer to be vague or defensive when it comes to what they charge. They should be upfront and open, leaving no surprises.

Customer Reviews

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.

Tim Willisin the last week

This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!

VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
