Whether you intend to immigrate to Canada or the United States on a permanent or temporary basis, it is a complicated and time-consuming process. You are not legally required to hire an immigration representative during the immigration process, and may go it alone if you feel that is the wisest option. However, we feel that the use of an immigration representative such as an immigration lawyer is the best choice you can make during the immigration process. We may seem biased, but truthfully we have good reasons to think this way: Hiring an Immigration Representative 300x201 Hiring an Immigration Representative in Denver

But are all immigration representatives the same? The answer is no.

Immigration Lawyers Or Immigration Consultants?

If you want to hire an immigration representative, you have the choice of an immigration lawyer or an immigration consultant. While they may seem similar in the services they offer, they are not similar at all.

An immigration lawyer is regulated, held to a particular standard of service and has completed law school. An immigration lawyer is also required to continue to grow their knowledge through professional development while knowing immigration law inside and out.

An immigration consultant used to be regulated by an authoritative body, but they did not have the resources to hold unscrupulous consultants accountable for poor service or even outright fraud, not were they able to monitor their consultants effectively. A new regulatory body was put into effect late last year, but it remains to be seen how effective they will be. Even still, the news is rife with stories of shady immigration consultants who take advantage of those using their services. That is not to say that all immigration consultants are bad – there are many good ones out there. But for the client, it can be difficult to choose a good one.
