Hiring an Immigration Representative in Austin

Congratulations on deciding to immigrate to Canada or the United States. If you want to work or study temporarily, reunite with your family, open a business, sponsor a spouse, invest in Canada or the United States or move to Canada or the US permanently (permanent residence or a green card), you’ve made a potentially life changing and exciting decision.

But with any decision this big, it is a very, very good idea to consult with a professional who knows the immigration system in and out and who will take good care of you through this process.

There are two types of immigration representatives in the United States or Canada that are available to help you, and they are called immigration consultants and immigration lawyers. These are two very different types of representatives, so make sure you understand the difference.

Immigration Lawyers Or Immigration Consultants?

We may seem biased, but immigration consultants are not well-regulated in Canada. The previous regulatory body was not effective at dealing with shady or fraudulent consultants, and the new regulatory body is too young to tell how good of a job they’ll do. In the United States, there are next to no regulations that govern how an immigration consultant operates.

In addition, there are many limitations on what an immigration consultant can do for their client. They cannot offer legal advice, for one. They can offer guidance and explain a bit about how the immigration process works, as well as help a client fill out application forms and submit them.

And immigration lawyer can offer all of the same services, except they can also offer legal advice, prepare legal submission letters informing authorities of your eligibility for your immigration category, monitor your case, prepare you for interviews, represent you where applicable and much, much more.
