Do I Really Need an Edmonton Immigration Lawyer?

When you decide to immigrate to Edmonton or anywhere else in Canada or the United States, a licensed immigration lawyer can be a huge asset. This is because the immigration system in Canada and the United States is not designed to be simple to use. While there are forms and information available online, you can’t always rely on what you read or who you speak with to give you expert guidance in your immigration journey. Canadian Visa

Whether you are applying for permanent residency in Edmonton or temporary residency in the form of a visitor visa, a work permit or a study permit, this is a big step and a great opportunity that should not be left up to chance. An immigration lawyer can help guide you through the process, assess your case and your qualifications, ensure you are eligible for the visa you want to apply for and make sure that your application package is complete and error-free.

What about an immigration consultant?

Immigration consultants offer services that may seem similar to those of an immigration lawyer, but they are not the same. While the services provided by both professionals may overlap, an immigration consultant is limited in the assistance they can offer you.

An immigration lawyer can do everything an immigration consultant can and more, such as offer you legal advice. It is illegal for an immigration consultant to offer you legal advice, for example.

In addition, immigration lawyers are licensed lawyers who are much better regulated and held to higher standards than immigration consultants, and have gone through much more education in their lifetime.
