What is the difference between an immigration consultant and an immigration lawyer?
Lawyers are required to be much more trained and educated than an immigration consultant. A consultant requires less than one year of higher education, while an immigration lawyer requires at least 7 years of higher education at a university level. In addition, a lawyer is required to do one year of practical (on-the-job) training before being able to challenge the bar entry examination.
You are also better protected with an immigration lawyer. The common-law prevents a lawyer from telling the authorities about your case even if the authorities have legal authority to request that information. There is no such “solicitor-client” protection with immigration consultants. This means that there is less protection/confidentiality for you if you tell an immigration consultant something that may later be held against you.
