Has anyone used an immigration consultant or lawyer in Calgary, AB they would recommend? Just looking for some help and oversight with a family visa application.

A family visa for the UK or Canada?

Good clarification, a U.K. visa for a Canadian.

I'd advise you to ask your questions here, there's some very experienced and knowledgeable BE members who could probably tell you all you need to know, and you'd save the cost of an immigration adviser/lawyer.

Well I guess question number one then is is getting a lawyer or a professional service to do an application on your behalf a good use of money or is the process and forms simple enough they are really unnecessary?
Also any top tips prior to starting the process?

TIA 😊

Most of us did our own spouse visa applications successfully - is that the visa you're applying for? If you're relatively literate and proficient in English, which you obviously are, you should be able to complete the application yourself. It's been described quite correctly as a 'tick box exercise'. Gathering all the documents and evidence you need is what takes the most time, and you'd have to do that even if you had an immigration adviser. People often find as they're going through the application that there's a question or two that doesn't quite make sense to them, so they ask here for clarification.

First up, how are you going to meet the financial requirement? If it's the spouse visa you/your partner is applying for, are you married? If not, how long have you been living together (cohabiting)? Just a couple of questions to get you moving in the right direction, as I'm not sure how familiar you are with the spouse visa requirements.

What process? What visa are you looking for? From your earlier post I'd reckon a spouse visa for your wife to live in the UK? Please confirm......
