Why You Should Hire An Immigration Lawyer, Not A Consultant

Blog posted on by Evelyn Ackah in Ackah Law

Why You Should Hire An Immigration Lawyer, Not A Consultant

New data demonstrates that immigration applications to Canada have a significantly higher rate of success when the applicant hires an immigration lawyer instead of filling the application out themselves or hiring an immigration consultant.

According to The Star, “Many immigration consultants have only completed online courses at a community college. The education and training is just not comparable.” The data from The Star was obtained through an access to information request, and shows:

  • 10.4% of immigration applications prepared by an immigration lawyer were rejected
  • 18.9% of all applications were rejected
  • 19.3% of those who complete their own immigration application were refused
  • 18% of immigration applications prepared by an immigration consultant were rejected

Canada immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah understands why people often try to complete their immigration application themselves but advises that mistakes can be costly and stressful:

I have 20 years experience as an immigration lawyer, and that's the only type of law I practice. As an immigrant to Canada myself, immigration isn't just a job to me - its personal.

Our experience means we can identify potential problems in your application, and advise you on your best options. Our expert legal team delivers proven and effective immigration law solutions to our clients, and we offer flat fee pricing for most immigration cases so our clients are never surprised or caught unprepared.
