How do lawyer's services differ from services of a paralegal or a consultant?

A lawyer has the right to represent the client's interests on any stage of immigration, legal and appealing processes. It is also assumed that the Canadian lawyer is held in the highest regard by the Canadian Embassies to whom the client’s application is submitted. Therefore, the Canadian immigration officials must treat the lawyer’s client in a most respectful manner and make à correct decision, according to the Canadian law.

As for consultants and paralegals, they are limited in their rights; for example, they are not at all allowed to represent the clients in the federal courts. Besides, the lawyer has the highest level of responsibility, since he is responsible not only to the client and court, but he is also responsible to the Law Society, which can find them liable in cases of serious mistakes. And also, one of the most important issues. Unlike a consultant, a lawyer must put the client's money into a trust account. It's an account, which holds the clients' money in the name of each client and shows the exact sum paid by the client. This account is under full control of the Law Society, to the extent that the interest from the account does not go to the lawyer, but to the account of the Law Society. If a client believes that his lawyer does not fulfill the conditions of the contract, which is signed by both, the lawyer and the client before the beginning of the work, then the client can go to the Law Society and complain about the lawyer. Each lawyer carries insurance, so if he makes an error or is negligent during the process, the client can sue the lawyer, and the insurance will cover the client's losses. This is one of the guarantees that the work will be done in a professional manner. Paralegals and consultants do not carry such insurance, which is very important. This is the only real guarantee that you have when you hire someone.

Immigration Solutions

AzulaySeiden provides reliable immigration services in all areas of immigration law, throughout the US and around the globe.

These areas are sometimes divided into different categories such as nonimmigrant and immigrant visas, family-based and employment-based visas, etc. However, particularly among family and employment-based, there can be some overlap. For example, some employment-based visa categories allow for the beneficiary to bring his/her family members to the US with him/her.

Some also think of immigration as a petitioner/beneficiary process. What this means is that often times, an individual (petitioner), who may be an employer or family member, will petition to bring another individual into the US. But, there are also some limited visa categories for which people can petition for themselves without a beneficiary.

Finally, there are other immigration situations where individuals may need assistance, including asylum and deportation/removal proceedings.

Why Do I Need A Lawyer?

The digital information revolution is a great thing, right? Canada Immigration’s website has application forms, kits, and guides. And there are websites, Chat Rooms, and newsgroups to get ideas about how to handle your immigration case. So you ask yourself, “Why do I need a lawyer to handle my immigration case?”

The truth is, you don’t need just any lawyer. Most lawyers specialize in a particular area of practice. You wouldn’t go to a Family doctor, or even a Heart surgeon, if you have liver cancer; you’d see a liver cancer specialist!

In the same way, you don’t want to go to a general lawyer, or a corporate lawyer to handle your Immigration matters; with diligent research, you may learn more about immigration procedures than the general lawyer you hire!

The same is true for Immigration Consultants. While many Consultants are good at immigration procedures, most do not have any legal training to think about the “why” behind the “how to”. Unless they work with an immigration law firm, they’re not likely to have the expertise to recognize and deal with complex situations or problems that arise.

When hiring a lawyer for your immigration case, you need one who knows the most up-to-date Immigration law and procedures, who handles immigration cases all the time and not “on the side”, and whom you can trust your family’s future with.

Consider these facts:

  1. The stakes are high. It’s not just money; it’s the years of time, energy, and your future plans that are affected. You can’t afford to make a mistake.
  2. You’ve never done it before, and may never do it again. Canada’s immigration laws are complex, and most lawyers don’t even know all the new provisions. Do you really want to learn the law and procedures yourself, and use your family as a test case?
  3. Immigration laws are in a state of flux. The June 2002 Immigration Regulations were the most extensive change in 24 years, and many provisions are still not clear. This creates opportunities as well as problems, although these will be very difficult for nonimmigration lawyers to find out; Canada Immigration is certainly not going to tell you!
  4. You may not know if you’ve made a mistake, especially a fatal one, until many months later. Having to start all over again means wasting all that time, not to mention the emotional and physical toll on you and your family.
  5. You need the right answers to your questions, which you can rely on. Information that you get from Canada Immigration’s clerks is often inconsistent, and sometimes completely wrong! Also, while there are thousands of pages on Canada Immigration’s website, you need to find answers to your questions, and how to apply them to your situation. At Lowe & Company, we do the thinking for you....about the right questions, as well as the right answers.
  6. You need to know the right Questions. You often have options, but don’t know about them; you need to ask the right questions. At Lowe & Company, we review your case, consider your legal options, then ask YOU the questions, to process your case smoothly.
  7. There may be problems delaying your case, but you don’t even know about them. We periodically search your Immigration file to see if there are problems with your case. Then, we will advise you as to the best solutions for these.
  8. Increase your chance of an Interview Waiver: Often, we can help you get an interview waiver by providing additional documents which are not on Canada Immigration’s “document lists”. We consider the facts of your case, then advise you as to what could improve your chances of an interview waiver.
  9. The cost is worth the benefit. Lowe & Company’s legal fees are competitive, and are payable in instalments as your case progresses. The cost of failure is much higher.

At Lowe & Company, we have the knowledge, experience, and compassion to handle your case. Our lawyers have been doing Immigration law for almost 20 years, and have satisfied clients from over 55 countries; and we can handle your case too!.

John McCain on Border Security and Immigration
"As you know, I and many other colleagues twice attempted to pass comprehensive immigration legislation to fix our broken borders; ensure respect for the laws of this country; recognize the important economic contribution of immigrant laborers; apprehend those who came here illegally to commit crimes; and deal practically and humanely with those who came here, as my distant ancestors did, to build a better, safer life for their families, without excusing the fact they came here illegally or granting them privileges before those who have been waiting their turn outside the country. Many Americans did not believe us when we said we would secure our borders, and so we failed in our efforts. I don't want to fail again to achieve comprehensive immigration reform. We must prove we have the resources to secure our borders and use them, while respecting the dignity and rights of citizens and legal residents of the United States. When we have achieved our border security goal, we must enact and implement the other parts of practical, fair and necessary immigration policy. We have economic and humanitarian responsibilities as well, and they require no less dedication from us in meeting them."

- John McCain
John McCain believes America's immigration system is broken. He is committed to a two-step process to reform.

Securing Our Borders First. John McCain's top immigration priority is to finish securing our borders in an expedited manner. Governors of border states will be required to certify that the border is secure. Steps to border security include:
  • Setting clear guidelines and objectives for securing the border through physical and virtual barriers.
  • Ensuring that adequate funding is provided for resources on the ground, but also training facilities, support staff and the deployment of technologies.
  • Dedicating funding to US Attorney’s offices in border states.
  • Implementing sound policies for contracting Department of Homeland Security software and infrastructure.
  • Deploy Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and other aircraft where needed and appropriate in the border region.
  • Continue implementation of the US-VISIT comprehensive visitor security program.

Comprehensive Immigration Initiatives for a Secure Nation. Once the borders are secure, John McCain will:

Prosecute “Bad-Actor” Employers. John McCain will implement a secure, accurate, and reliable electronic employment verification system to ensure that individuals are screened for work eligibility in a real-time fashion. John McCain will use this new system in conjunction with other Department of Homeland Security resources to identify and aggressively prosecute employers that continue to hire illegal immigrants. The Electronic Employment Verification System will:

  • Establish a user-friendly system employing a limited set of secure documents that contain biometric data and are electronically verifiable to check a worker’s identity.
  • Provide responses to employer inquiries in a prompt and timely manner to provide both the employer and employee security in their hiring decisions.
  • Update and ensure the accuracy of current databases of government agencies that play a role in employment verification.
  • Protect the identities of each employee being screened and allow both employer and employee adequate time and opportunity to correct possible errors with any information in the system.
  • Institute targeted auditing by Department of Labor in order to weed out employers abusing the system.

Meet America’s Labor Needs. John McCain will implement temporary worker programs that will reflect the labor needs of the United States in both the high-tech and low skilled sectors while protecting the employment opportunities for US workers:

  • Highly Skilled workers:

    • Ensure high skilled workers trained and educated in the United States have the opportunity to stay and work in the United States upon graduation.
    • Reform caps for H-1B visa program to rise and fall in response to market conditions. Reduce bureaucracy and waiting times for workers to arrive in the United States.
    • Increase available green card numbers to reflect employer and employee demand.
    • Extend the ability for H-1B visa holders to renew their H-1B status while waiting for their green card number to become available.
    • Ensure available and qualified American workers are given adequate and fair opportunities to apply for available positions.
  • Low-skilled non-agricultural workers:
    • Implement a usable, market based system for low-skilled workers to enter the United States in an orderly fashion.
    • Ensure that the cap rises and falls with market demand to meet the changing needs of the economy.
    • Provide for adequate worker protection to guard against employer abuses of temporary workers.
    • Protect American workers by designing a program that allows willing and eligible United States workers adequate opportunity to apply for available positions.
    • Ensure that workers return to their home countries after their temporary period in the United States.
    • Allow for appropriate visa renewals to assure that both the employer and employee have stability in the workforce.
    • Offer a limited number of green cards to reflect the small number of workers that may wish to remain in the United States permanently.
  • Low-skilled agricultural workers:
    • Reform the H-2A visa program to provide a non-bureaucratic, adaptable, usable program that is reflective of market needs and protects both the immigrant and US workers.

Address the Undocumented. John McCain will address the fact that we have a large number undocumented individuals living in the United States and working in our economy:

  • All undocumented individuals will be required to enroll in a program to resolve their status.
  • This program will use background checks to identify criminal aliens for prosecution and deportation.
    • Assure that the remaining undocumented immigrants learn English, pay back taxes and fines, and pass a citizenship course as part of a path to legal status.
    • Guarantee that no person here illegally receives a green card before those that have been legally waiting outside the country.
    • Do a proper accounting of all social security numbers used and attained illegally, rectifying the accounts and alerting those whose identity had been compromised.
  • The program will also ensure that all undocumented aliens either leave or follow the path to legal residence. America cannot permit a permanent category of individuals that do not have recognized status – a permanent second class.
  • In addition, the program will provide a system that is fair, humane, realistic, and ensures the rights of the individual and families will be protected.
    • Ensure that families are reunited.
    • Address in an expedited manner the status of individuals brought here illegally as minors through no will or intention of their own.

Eliminate the Family Backlog. John McCain will commit to clearing out the backlog of individuals that are waiting legally outside of the country, some for up to 20 years, for their green card number to become available.

BARACK OBAMA :: Plan for Immigration

“The time to fix our broken immigration system is now… We need stronger enforcement on the border and at the workplace… But for reform to work, we also must respond to what pulls people to America… Where we can reunite families, we should. Where we can bring in more foreign-born workers with the skills our economy needs, we should”

— Barack Obama, Statement on U.S. Senate Floor, May 23, 2007

The Problem
  • Undocumented population is exploding: The number of undocumented immigrants in the country has increased more than 40 percent since 2000. Every year, more than a half-million people come illegally or illegally overstay their visas.
  • Immigration bureaucracy is broken: The immigration bureaucracy is broken and overwhelmed, forcing legal immigrants to wait years for applications.
  • Immigration raids are ineffective: Despite a sevenfold increase in recent years, immigration raids only netted 3,600 arrests in 2006 and have placed all the burdens of a broken system onto immigrant families.

Barack Obama's Plan

Create Secure Borders
Obama wants to preserve the integrity of our borders. He supports additional personnel, infrastructure and technology on the border and at our ports of entry.
Improve Our Immigration System
Obama believes we must fix the dysfunctional immigration bureaucracy and increase the number of legal immigrants to keep families together and meet the demand for jobs that employers cannot fill.
Remove Incentives to Enter Illegally
Obama will remove incentives to enter the country illegally by cracking down on employers who hire undocumented immigrants.
Bring People Out of the Shadows
Obama supports a system that allows undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens.
Work with Mexico
Obama believes we need to do more to promote economic development in Mexico to decrease illegal immigration.

Diversity Visa Lottery: Read the Rules, Avoid the Rip-Offs

If you or someone you know is trying to get a green card - the right to live in the United States permanently - be on the lookout for unscrupulous businesses and attorneys. They'll claim that, for a fee, they can make it easier to enter the U. S. State Department's annual Diversity Visa (DV) lottery (also known commonly as the "green card lottery", but the U.S. government NEVER uses this phrase, so that is a clear tipoff to a scam) or increase your chances of winning the DV lottery.

Each year, the State Department conducts a lottery through its DV program to distribute applications for 50,000 immigrant visas. Winners of the lottery have a chance to apply for an immigrant visa, which can be used to enter the U. S. Winners are selected randomly, and there is no fee to enter the lottery.

Starting in 2003, entries to the DV lottery must be submitted online. (This site is only accessible during the application period.) Paper entries or mail-in requests will not be accepted. Lottery entrants must include a passport-style digital photograph and separate digital photographs of any spouse and children under 21 years of age. Group photographs are not allowed. Check with the State Department for technical requirements of the digital photograph.

The decision makers influence the transactions being requested, whether the decision maker controls approval of a B-1 visa for a business person or consular processing of a marriage visa, or works within the Department of State and is capable of addressing a humanitarian situation or the home residency requirement of a J visa. Decision makers reside not only within the US government, but also within ministries and consulates of other governments. Diplomatic intervention brings the correct processes together with the effective decision makers.
