Butkowsky Immigration Law Lawyer Bios

Immigration to another country can present a remarkable opportunity, and Canada welcomes people who wish to move here to live, work, and raise a family. The Canadian immigration process, however, is constantly changing and can involve complex application requirements, confusing procedures and rules, and an investment of time and attention. The services of a qualified immigration lawyer can be invaluable in ensuring that your immigration proceeds smoothly. Immigration lawyers are familiar with the law and the process involved in cases like yours, and are in the best position to help you and your family make the move to Ontario or elsewhere in Canada.

Your lawyer can provide you with advice about immigration, answer your questions, and help you prepare and submit the appropriate application paperwork and documentation. A lawyer can even speak for you at hearings and court proceedings, if needed. An immigration lawyer can also help you deal with specific challenges or legal issues that can delay or complicate your immigration process; for example:

  • If you have committed or been convicted of a crime, this is not always a barrier to immigration, but making inaccurate or false claims on your application concerning these charges or your criminal history may hinder your immigration, or result in deportation if you are already here. A lawyer can advise you on the best way to address your particular situation.
  • If you have applied for a visa or residence permit in the past and your application was denied, an experienced immigration lawyer can assess your previous applications and help you formulate and pursue a plan for achieving your immigration goals, whether that means an appeal or a new application.
  • Many people get well into the immigration process before realizing that it is beyond their ability to successfully navigate. It is always easier to hire an immigration lawyer at the outset, in order to avoid unnecessary delays, but even if you have begun the process, a lawyer can help answer your questions, clear up any confusion, and help you complete the process with confidence.
  • If you have been deported in the past, obtaining permission to re-enter Canada may still be possible, but it will require some experienced legal help.
  • If you have filed an immigration application, but have been waiting an unreasonably long time for a reply, a seasoned immigration lawyer can assess your situation and look for ways to expedite your request.

This list is by no means exhaustive, but as you can see, there are many situations in which the services of an immigration lawyer can help. Whether you are just beginning to explore immigration to Ontario or elsewhere in Canada, or whether you are in the middle of the immigration process and have encountered unforeseen obstacles on the road to a visa, permanent residence or citizenship, now is the time to contact an immigration professional, someone with the experience needed to protect your rights and guide you and your family through these unfamiliar legal waters.
