There are the issues you never think about, until you face them personally. Looking for an immigration advisor is one of such cases. Despite the fact that in modern world all the information is available online, via free assessment or chat, we often come to the point when some regulations or rules are not quite clear and we do not know whether they are applicable to our situation. Here you realize that the consultation of an experienced advisor will be very helpful and start looking for one.
Useful guidelines how to find a relevant specialist are as follows:
1. Search Thoroughly
Of course, the easiest way is just to type ‘immigration lawyers near me’ online and look through hundreds of pages of contradictory information. Remember: there is always an official website/resource listing authorised advisors. Licenced specialists must be registered with the Regulatory Body.
2. Check Reviews
If a few companies are chosen after the research, check their websites and all available reviews. It will help to outline the experience and professional skills of the lawyer.
3. Rely on Referrals
If you have friends or relatives who recently addressed experts in the same field, ask them for their opinion.
Contact several advisors you chose as an option. Their communication manner, interest in you as a client will help you make a final decision.
5. Ask for a Consultation
Paying for a consultation will save your money and help to avoid stress in the future as you will know if this company is the one you are ready to continue with.
6. Pay Attention to Ethical Norms
A decent professional will never advise you to lie, conceal any information or provide forged documentation. Never work with such ‘specialists’.
7. Check the Fee Policy
Financial issues are to be the main concern, sufficiently discussed and accurately reflected in the contract. It is better when the prices are fixed. Ask if the consultation is deducted from the total price, what further stages will require new payments.
8. Discuss Risks and Guarantees
Nobody can give you a 100% guarantee, especially, if the decision depends on other level professionals: caseworkers, officers etc. Be on the alert if you are promised too much. A reliable lawyer will focus on the weak points and risks and advise under what conditions they can be disregarded.
9. Sign a Contract
In this case your rights will be protected. You may ask for a refund, check the company data, licence and regulatory body.
