Retainers and Payments
To start a file, we require an initial payment to open an account. The initial payment is held in our trust account and is kept there until the work is complete. Once we received the initial payment, we can immediately begin work on the file. After the application is prepared, the client is billed for the work done on file including legal/professional fees, application fees, administrative fees, taxes and disbursements. We accept payment by cheque, cash, wire transfer, Interac email transfer and credit card (PayPal).
Please note that our fees are subject to change without notice. For payment plans, contact our office and we will work with you to accommodate.
Access to Information Requests
In most cases, we will include an Access to Information request (ATIP application) to the Privacy Commission (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) at no additional legal cost. This provides our office with, among other things, a copy of the Officer’s notes and we use it to identify potential issues. If clients have any questions or concerns, please use the Consultation to ask.
Immigration Legal Fees & Results
Please note that our immigration legal fees are for professional services, not the result. Results can and should never be guaranteed by anyone (lawyer or immigration consultant). We work very hard to give you the best service for affordable costs but don’t take our word for it. Read testimonials from our past clients about the results we get for our clients.
