Do I Need an Immigration Lawyer to Immigrate to Canada?
While the law does not require you to hire a professional lawyer or a legal practitioner to oversee or complete your immigration formalities to Canada, many people strongly recommend you opt for an immigration lawyer. This is because once you engage an immigration lawyer, it will be the lawyer’s responsibility to take care of your paperwork and any other legal requirements that you will be expected to comply with. This takes a lot of stress off your shoulders and allows you to focus on other things relating to your immigration.
