Legal assistance to guide you

In order to make a good application or refugee claim, or to be effective in your request or correspondence with an immigration or border officer, you need to present your application / letter and evidence in a the way that the immigration or refugee protection or Canada Border Service Agency decision maker wants to see.  You need to answer all their questions and concerns.  You have to tell your story in an acceptable way from their point of view.  This involves following rules requirements, which are often changing, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.  If you have an immigration appeal hearing, the rules, process and preparation become even more complicated.  If you wanted to challenge a negative decision at the Federal Court, the complication and challenge grows.  In order to have peace of mind and be able to focus on the rest of your day, it makes a big difference to have a legal professional help take care of these complexities.  Let Asaf be your guide through the process.

 

Consultation and fees

Contact Asaf Rashid Law at 902 - 919 - 5769 or asaf@arashidlaw.ca  to begin a conversation.  Asaf offers a free phone consultation to answer some simple questions you may have, like basic eligibility requirements and timelines for immigration and refugee applications and procedures.

To get ready to prepare for an application, claim, hearing, or other refugee, immigration or citizenship matter, you will need a full consultation.  This is where Asaf can gather more details about your case, go over documents that need to be reviewed, and help determine your eligibility and how to make a strong case.  He will also explain more details of his fee arrangement and next steps.

The consultation will be approximately 1.5 hours.  It can be done in person, by video through Zoom, Skype/ Microsoft Teams, other video platforms, or by phone.  The fee is $250.00 + HST = $287.50 for all forms of consultation.  The consultation fee will be deducted from the fee for his services if Asaf assists you further.

If Asaf determines that he will be able to assist you, he will prepare a service agreement, which will explain the fees. He will not begin work until both you and him have gone over and signed the agreement to make sure that he is only doing work that was agreed upon, and you know what the fees are for.

See the list below for a list of fees.  Not every possible service is there, but it should give you a good idea of the range of costs.  In order to make his services more accessible and affordable, Asaf can set up a payment plan appropriate for you.  He will also consider discounts in appropriate cases.
