Immigration lawyers are the experts that specialize in offering services to applicants throughout the complicated and ever-evolving immigration process. They help you interpret the law and analyze your immigration rights. Even a simple mistake in your visa or permit application can lead to a delay or rejection of your application. An immigration lawyer can help quickly resolve your disputes compared to other lawyers, as they act more like a guide and teacher between the applicants and the authorities.
In this blog, we have mentioned some imperative services offered by our immigration lawyers at Chaudhary Law Office that you must consider the next time you hire services from an immigration lawyer.
Criminal inadmissibility (e.g Conviction(s))
An immigration lawyer can complement the use of a separate criminal defense lawyer for the applicants who face a conviction for committing a crime. Most immigration forms require applicants to disclose criminal offense records, including the ones that were later dropped or eradicated. Detention and arrest must be disclosed. At times, immigration and criminal laws might overlap with each other, immigration lawyers are well aware of how to deal with such situations and can provide the best solution for the same.
PR and application rejection
When you submit your immigration application form without consulting an expert you may possibly be committing common mistakes that can cause major problems in your immigration process. An immigration lawyer helps in determining why your application was rejected in the first place and whether it is possible to appeal the application or not. They also provide legal help in reapplying your application at a later date. In addition, they also provide legal assistance in your permanent residence card application/renewal.
If you are previously deported or excluded from entering a country, you will need the help of an immigration attorney to settle the dispute. In extreme cases, deportation can result in a complete ban from future applications. An immigration lawyer helps in obtaining legal status and determines the depth of the problem. They will further help in determining what are your legal rights after the deportation and exclusion, including options to return to Canada.
Medical Conditions and visitor visa
Each country has different laws and regulations regarding the medical conditions of immigration applicants, and the impact of those conditions on entering a country. Generally, communicable diseases like Covid-19 without a vaccine can prevent you from entering many countries. On the other hand, if you are a tourist, you can apply for a tourist visa, a document attached to your passport. It serves as proof that you have met all the requirements that are needed to enter the country as a temporary visitor. An immigration lawyer can help you establish whether your medical condition will render you ineligibility or other available visitor visa options.
Spouse Visa and recently divorced
You might need an immigration attorney if your marriage was terminated before you were able to remove certain conditions from your permanent resident status, or if you acquired status and terminated the marriage shortly after landing. Furthermore, the visa applications that are based on marriage need to be filed jointly by both the parties involved. However, if your marriage was terminated because of the death of your spouse or divorce then it might be difficult to prove that it was not a fraudulent marriage. In situations where you are recently divorced and have married a citizen of a different country, then it is quite possible that your first marriage can be suspected to be a scam. An immigration lawyer can help you prove that your marriage was legitimate and guide you further in the citizenship process.
An employment-based visa can be a complex process, especially when your company is not well-established, or overlooks all its obligations. An immigration lawyer will make sure you meet all the necessary requirements of being hired by a foreign employer and your company is following the appropriate procedure for confirming your employment authorization. They are well aware of the corporate legal formalities in other countries.
Eligibility for permanent resident status can differ from country to country. It is generally based on the age citizenship applicants and is different for applicants under the age of 22. Applicants under the age of 22 are typically non-taxpayer students who migrate in order to have better education and future. On the other hand, if you are migrating to Canada along with your family then the applicants between the age of 18 to 54 are required to perform language test (or present some other language evidence) before getting their citizenship. Naturalized citizens need to reside in Canada for a minimum of three years out of five, in order to apply for Canadian citizenship. An immigration attorney can help you with the best advice regarding the citizenship process and will allow you to explore other available benefits.
