Diamond will then gather all the information on your personal circumstances and tailor a plan to suit the immigration needs of you and your family. We will handle all of the paperwork and liaise with all the necessary government bodies on your behalf. All you have to do is provide us with the appropriate personal documentation pertaining to your application in a timely manner.
We take great care and exercise due diligence when conducting the initial assessment and making a judgment on an individual’s permanent residency eligibility. In saying this, WE ONLY accept applications that we believe will yield a SUCCESSFUL OUTCOME based on our initial assessment. Under NO circumstances will we move ahead and charge a fee to an application that we feel will not have a greater than 99% chance of acceptance. This would be highly unethical, damaging your chances of a new life in Canada and damaging to our professional reputation.
