What is a file transfer?
- A file transfer exists if you have already submitted your immigration application yourself or to another representative and now would like our office to represent the files.
- After consultation with you, we can determine whether we can accept your application and what advantages will result for you.
Why should I want to do a file transfer?
Immigration applications are often a stressful process with multiple bumps, even when creating and submitting seemingly simple applications. Along the way, you may find that you want to hire a lawyer or change lawyers. This can be for many reasons, including:
- You are dissatisfied with your current representative.
- Your current representative is no longer able to provide you with adequate support and you have been referred to another representative or wanted.
- You are not sure whether the application was submitted correctly or you do not know when your application is in the processing stream.
- You are currently preparing an application yourself and you feel overwhelmed.
- You have found that your immigration situation is more complex than previously thought and you want an attorney to help resolve those complications in your soon-to-be-filed application or your currently pending application.
- Your file is being processed and you are facing unexpected challenges (no immigration news, a residency questionnaire, requests for more documents or information, interviews, receiving a fairness letter, etc.) and you want guidance.
- You just want to be sure that someone is there for you who will support you with future hurdles and give you appropriate legal advice.
What can we do for you when we take over your file?
When accepting submitted and incomplete applications, we can proceed as follows, depending on your case, depending on the particular circumstances of your case:
- Contacting the immigration authorities to inform us about our representation and to ensure that we receive all future correspondence;
- Request a full copy of your file (forms, receipts, etc.) from you if you have kept copies.
- If you have not done so, please provide us with a list of all the documents you have submitted, as best you can remember.
- Filing an ATIP request to obtain a full copy of your file directly from the IRCC or CBSA in order to obtain all of the filing and review official notes;
- Preparing a legal filing letter setting out the relevant issues and clarifying facts that may have been forgotten or not well explained;
- Providing a list of documents that you need to collect in order to strengthen your file that we would submit to immigration;
- Regularly follow up on immigration to ensure your file is being processed properly and update the file if necessary.
Every immigration application is unique. If you’re looking for a new representation in your file, we’ll be happy to discuss this with you and develop a strategy to ensure your pending application is as complete as possible.
