9 Questions to Ask Before You Hire an Immigration Lawyer

Immigration law is continuously evolving and requires diligence to be sure you have the most current information so you have the best chance to move to Canada and start your new life.

How to Hire an Immigration Lawyer

Immigration law is becoming more complex and challenging every day. Immigration applications can be refused due to minor oversights and omissions that can delay or negatively impact your business or your family reunification plans. By not using a lawyer you can be putting your business and your family at risk. Ackah Business Immigration Law can help you understand your rights and understand Canadian immigration policies as they apply to your unique circumstances.

  2. What is your success rate?
    Our legal team works very hard on behalf of our clients, but not every immigration case has the outcome the client wants. Nevertheless, our success rate on immigration cases is so high because we carefully screen which clients we can help and only accept clients when we believe in our ability to succeed.

  3. I am not in Canada. How can we stay in contact?
    Ackah Business Immigration Law is proud of our innovative use of technology to stay in touch with clients around the globe.

For clients in Canada, we have offices in Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver.

  4. Are you a licenced lawyer?

Our legal team speaks English and French, the two official languages of Canada, as well as Spanish, Twi, Tagalog and a Zimbabwean dialect. In addition, we also can work with knowledgeable translators. Our website can be translated into many languages via the Translate option in the footer.
