Are you blind and can’t see that hiring someone from your own country that can speak your own native language can be more harm to you then help! Those Representatives only work on Immigration applications for MONEY!
- Why do you think that Lawyer or Consultant is seeking clients in your own community?
- Do you really believe that he/she paid thousands of dollars to become regulated because they wanted to work for FREE to help their own community?
- Why have you been so quick to accept them as your paid representative?
- What due diligence have you conducted to ascertain their experience with a case like yours?
Yesterday I consulted with a man who had submitted an In-Land Spousal Sponsorship application using a Lawyer from his native country. He had no difficulty speaking English. He had just received a letter from Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) asking him to provide 28 items to PROVE the genuineness of his relationship.
Twenty Eight items!
The Lawyer in question has a office right next to the Finch Criminal Courts in Toronto. I asked the man whether or not he questioned why his ethnic Lawyer chose to rent office space next door to a criminal court building?
I got no answer!
We quickly went through the 28 items requested by the IRCC Officer. Of the 28 items in question his ethnic Lawyer had not even asked him to submit two thirds of them so that Lawyer could submit those supporting documents.
I quickly explained five additional ways he could prove his marriage is genuine and that I would be willing to take over his spousal application.
Yes I’m helping him for money!
