Thank you for enquiring about our legal fees. Based on our investigation, we are the only immigration law firm in Manitoba to publish our fees online. We do this to make sure that we are fully transparent, open and fair with clients. To get started, call our office and book an appointment.
Q: How much do we need to start?
A: We will accept any reasonable amount to open a file. Our focus is on helping people and families, not on fees. We build relationships with our clients and we earn their trust through working hard and getting results. We have clients from every level of wealth and we provide the best service.
Q: Do you offer payment plans?
A: Yes, we accept any reasonable payment plan. Typically, clients will pay $500 or $1,000 monthly, depending on the case and the required services.
Q: What if I miss a payment?
A: Just let us know. If you have an emergency or a life event where you are not able to make a payment, please contact our office to make arrangements.
Q: Do you work for free?
A: Yes, we provide pro bono (free) legal services through the Refugee Sponsorship Support Program. We also give free presentations to the public through the Community Legal Education Association and free lectures at the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Law.
Q: Do you provide free services?
A: Yes, we regularly make ATIP applications for clients for free. This ensures that we have all the relevant documents and get copies of documents that were previously submitted.
Q: Can I switch lawyers?
A: Yes, you can switch lawyers. Please contact us and we will assist you. Your former lawyer may charge you for the work done.
Q: Do you charge block (fixed) fees?
A: Yes, we offer both block fees (see below) and hourly fees. It is up to you.
Q: Are the block fees listed per person or for the whole application?
A: We do not charge the block fees per person. We only charge one (1) fee for the whole application, no matter how many people are included in the application.
Q: Do you pay the government fees for the application?
A: Yes, we pay the fees for you. Those fees are listed on your Statement of Account within disbursements.
Q: Do I have to pay GST?
A: Only Canadian residents are charged GST (5%).
Q: Do you charge interest?
A: No, we have never charged interest; however, we reserve the right to charge interest in extreme cases where we lose contact with the client and they refuse to provide payment.
Q: If I pay your fees, can you guarantee a successful result?
A: No, we do not guarantee the result. The fees charged are for the services provided. Our reputation, however, is based on getting the best results.
Q: What is the best way to reach you?
A: Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will reply within 24 hours.
