Questions to ask an immigration lawyer in Edmonton

Congratulations! If you are considering immigrating to Edmonton or another city in Canada, you’ve made the first step by considering hiring an immigration lawyer. An immigration lawyer will have the experience to make sure your immigration proceedings are handled well, and can give your case a bigger advantage than if you were to attempt to go it alone. But the truth is, not all immigration lawyers are equal. This can be said about any industry where you would hire a professional – you need to ask the right questions before you hire a lawyer to make sure you – and your immigration future – are in the right hands. 

Choosing an Edmonton Immigration Lawyer

Ask the immigration lawyer if they think your case will be successful, first and foremost. This is a vital question that can help you avoid fraudulent immigration lawyers and immigration consultants. This is because an immigration lawyer can tell you their honest opinion of your case’s chance of success or failure, but they shouldn’t guarantee that your case or application will be approved. No lawyer can, and if they do this means they could be engaging in fraud.

You should also ask the lawyer what they charge and how often they’ll respond to your emails. Even though you may have to wait longer periods of time for your application to be processed, they should be available to take your calls or respond to your messages quickly. They should also be up front about their fees, and you can expect to know exactly what you’ll be paying before you start the process.

Don’t be surprised if the lawyer you’ve seen on television or internet advertisements is not the exact lawyer representing you. An immigration law firm may have many lawyers working there, but you are free to ask if the lawyer handling your case is qualified.
