Ackah Law is closely monitoring the global guidelines and following the health and travel recommendations that are evolving due to the worldwide coronavirus (COVID-19). We are dedicated to helping our clients do the same. We want to share our approach with you and assure you of our commitment to maintaining uninterrupted immigration legal services during this global pandemic.

Ackah Business Immigration Law is open for business to help people by telephone, email, and skype and zoom, etc. The health and safety of our team, our families, our clients and our community are our main priorities. Ackah Law is dedicated to serving all those who may need us now more than ever.

If you need immigration legal advice now or you think you're going to need it in a week, or a month or six weeks from, Ackah Law is open for business! One of the things we've been sharing with our clients is even if there are initial travel holds, we want to help you get your immigration applications ready now. The Canadian immigration office, IRCC, will definitely be backlogged in the near future at the immigration processing centers for the U.S. and Canada, at consulates, and even possibly at the border, given all the travel challenges.

Don't wait, thinking that things will get easier later. Let's get it done now so you have everything you need and you can hold onto your immigration application, and when you're ready to initiate or you're ready to submit or when you're ready to immigrate, you're all ready to go.

March is Immigration Fraud Prevention Month

March is Fraud Prevention Month in Canada. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) works to raise awareness about the different types of immigration fraud, how to recognize scams and fraudulent websites, how to properly choose an immigration or citizenship lawyer, and how to report fraud.

No one can promise your application will be given special treatment or guarantee that it will be approved. All applications are assessed fairly and on the same merit, according to IRCC policy. During this confusing and stressful time when the coronavirus is causing many changes to immigration policies and programs, be alert of immigration scams and ghost immigration consultants that take advantage of people who want to move to a new life in Canada.

Thank you again for all of your help making my adventure towards citizenship successful. I am confident that your support was a significant contributor to making the process go as quickly and smoothly as it did. With all of my trips outside of the country, things could very easily have gotten a lot more difficult and drawn out. It still seems hard to believe that it is all done!
