Congratulations to our clients who just had their PR application approved! We were retained in March 2022, worked with them to prepare the package to IRCC, submitted the PR application on 2 MAY 2022 and they were approved on 12 SEPT 2022. It has been a pleasure to work with this family and we are extremely pleased with the quick positive result.
I have to be clear: 4 months to get PR status is extremely fast. Most of our clients are not approved this quickly. I have to commend the quality of work done by the team at Clarke Immigration Law for putting together a beautiful package for IRCC. Clearly, the Officer agreed with our submissions.
Why should I hire a lawyer?
Clients will often ask, “what is the benefit of hiring you?” It is difficult to answer this question, of course. I cannot give an objective answer. I cannot say that our applications are processed faster than applications by agents or consultants. I cannot say that applicants who try and prepare the documents themselves may make mistakes that may lead to delays. Each applicant comes from their own background and level of familiarity with immigration forms and regulations. I can say that the vast majority of applications prepared by Clarke Immigration Law are decided much faster than average processing times at IRCC.
Currently, Canadian immigration officers are overwhelmed with applications. Based on global events, Canada is one of the top destination countries, possibly the #1 destination country. The flood of applications has caused longer processing times and we recognize the hard work done by IRCC and CBSA Officers. If you are reading this post, we thank you for your service.
Backlogs & Processing Times
If your application is stuck in the backlog and you are not sure what to do, we have published a guide on our website regarding delays, backlogs and actions you can take to get your application back on track.
We love to maintain great relationships with our friends at IRCC and CBSA. We work with Members of Parliament from all political parties on behalf of our clients to get positive results, as fast as possible.
In case you are wondering, we will be assisting this family until the PR Card has been issued and we do not charge any additional fees during the processing of the application. Our fixed fees include our services from start to finish.
