FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Calver and Associates Canadian Immigration Services is here to help. We know you must have plenty of questions so we have compiled some answers to the most frequently asked questions below. If we did not answer your question below, feel free to contact us.
I’m ready to come to Canada. What should I do first?
All immigration law consultations include a comprehensive meeting with a Canadian Immigration Specialist who will provide an assessment of your case in addition to personalized legal advice. The consultation allows Ms. Calver to familiarize herself with your case and gain the background information required to offer advice and recommendations.
What is included in a consultation?
Our 1-hour consultation consists of an assessment of your eligibility for various Canadian immigration programs, a review of your case, and our personalized recommendations and suggestions. During your appointment, we explain the application process in detail and answer any questions you may have about your case and program of interest. Included in your consultation is a personalized follow-up email containing a summary of your appointment and our recommendations for next steps.
If you decide to retain Calver & Associates Canadian Immigration Services, we will gladly deduct the consultation fee from the overall cost of our application services. *We also do not offer contingency retainers.
How do I book a consultation?
You can book a consultation using our online booking tool. Simply select the day and time that suits your schedule. We offer appointments in person, via telephone, and via Skype.
Alternatively, you may book an appointment via email by contacting Elise at firstname.lastname@example.org
Is it possible to have a quick call before my consultation?
Unfortunately, we cannot offer phone calls that are shorter in length because they simply do not allow us the opportunity to offer you appropriate, detailed advice. We cannot consult in a quick phone call of ten or fifteen minutes while continuing to offer you valuable advice.
What documents will I need to provide?
Depending on the program and category you choose to apply for, you will be required to supply different documents. We will inform you of the documents you need to submit and organize them to build your case.
The standard documents required include birth certificates, passports, and national identity cards as well as documents proving your qualifications, such as diplomas, and language test scores.
