We’ve put together a list of questions you should ask any immigration lawyer (or immigration consultant or other immigration services representative) before you choose to hire them.

Questions for immigration lawyers

1. You are well within your rights to ask an immigration lawyer if they think your case will be successful. After all, they have the knowledge and experience to give you an honest answer. However, an immigration lawyer should never guarantee your case will be accepted, offer acceptance of your application if you pay a certain amount of money or say they have an ‘in’ at the immigration department. These are very shady answers and these things can put your immigration application in jeopardy.

2. Ask about the immigration lawyer’s fees. They shouldn’t be secretive or shy about their fees, and should be upfront in discussing them for you. You should know exactly what you are receiving and see the value in it – not be surprised later by hidden charged.

3. Ask if the immigration lawyer has references. In any case, they should be willing to provide you with testimonials, reviews or references. This indicates they have many happy clients, and is something they should be proud of.

4. Ask the lawyer how quickly you can expect them to respond to you. You may not be only dealing with them face-to-face, but through phone calls and e-mails. It can be very frustrating to have important questions or need to contact your immigration lawyer and have them not available or take too long to respond.

We would be more than happy to answer all of these questions and more.
