Our after hours consultation is for those who can not make the time during the day to have a consultation or want to have both spouses present and are only able to do so after working hours.
All consultations are up to 60 minutes in duration and can be done via Skype, Zoom or you can call in to our land line. All consultations are tailored to the applicant’s specific immigration needs. Deanne will review your profile and all applicable documentation beforehand so that all of your options can be explored in detail during the consultation. Deanne will go through all of your possible Canadian immigration options as well as how each immigration option works and what to expect from the process from the initial application up to landing in Canada. This includes the costs involved and the documentation required for you and your accompanying family members (as applicable).
Please note: Consultations are only for the main applicant and their spouse (including common-law spouses) and their children under the age of 22 (herein referred to as “specified family unit”). Consultations will not be done for anyone outside of this specified family unit. This means that if you book a consultation anyone outside of this specified family unit cannot join in the consultation. This means boyfriends/girlfriends/, siblings, parents, aunts/uncles, cousins, friends, etc will need to book their own consultation. We will also not discuss or review any documents for anyone outside of the specified family unit. Common-Law spouses will be required to provide documents proving 12 months of continuous co-habitation.
