What Does an Immigration Lawyer Do?

An immigration lawyer provides a host of services that can make your immigration process much easier and stress-free. 


A few things that your immigration lawyer will take care of are:

  • Ensure proper paperwork Our immigration lawyers will make sure that all your paperwork is complete and that no details on your forms are missing. This is essential because when you are immigrating to Canada, you will have many complicated formalities to complete. These formalities are time-consuming and extremely easy to get wrong. One wrong move on your immigration application can cause delay and even rejection. An immigration lawyer will help you to avoid that.

  • Meet deadlines Besides making sure that your paperwork is complete, our immigration lawyers will also make sure that all your papers are filed on time. This will ensure that there are minimal chances of last-minute problems.

  • Give you the best option The immigration lawyers at Gittens & Associates are experienced and know the way around the system. They will not only be able to provide you with the easiest route to immigration but will also be able to guide you if you find yourself stuck at any step of the immigration process.

  • Provide guidance An immigration lawyer can assist you with an assessment to guide you as to how to go about your immigration process to gain permission to work/study/live in Canada.

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.
