What the


Payment Option

Does Not Include

Brookshire Law Office is committed to promoting “Access to Justice” for all Nova Scotians, even those unable to afford traditional legal services. Our “pay-as-you-go” payment option for legal services assists those who prefer to represent themselves rather than pay for services that are beyond the constraints imposed by their family budgets. We do not talk to judges, lawyers, or other parties. If you would like traditional legal services, we would be happy to provide you with services at our regular hourly rate.

How to Choose

An Immigration Lawyer

Immigration legal fees are based on the complexity of your case and your migration requirements. The cost range depends on what you want (e.g. permanent or temporary residence) and how many people there are in your family.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) does not require you to use an immigration consultant or lawyer. However, the applications and forms can be very complicated to complete alone. An immigration lawyer has experience knowing what is successful. This knowledge can greatly increase the chances of success with your application.

Your immigration lawyers work with corporations and employers to help you understand the legal steps that must first be followed before bringing employees to work in Canada. Your lawyer assists with the immigration applications and forms required, greatly increasing the ease and success of the migration.
