Welcome to my Immigration Blog

Thank you for visiting my Canada and US Immigration Blog. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I will enjoy writing it.My goals are to give you an inside look from a lawyer’s perspective concerning issues people face when it comes to immigration to Canada and to the USA. At my immigration law practice at Niren and Associates, my staff and I meet many interesting people with all sorts of Canada and US immigration needs. From the business person wishing to transfer to the USA on a US Work Visa, to a family from Afghanistan facing deportation from Canada, we see it all!

We really like to help people resolve their Canadian and US immigration issues. There is so much misinformation out there. We have found that the road to success begins with understanding and education. Simply clearing up misconceptions about immigration facts goes a long way to helping people make informed decisions about their own personal situation.

Often when I begin a consultation with a client, I first listen to what they have to say and many times I find that their situation is not as difficult as they think; rather the road blocks they face are really misunderstandings about immigration law and procedure. It is amazing how many smiles we get after listening to our clients’ stories and then attempt to explain to them what we see as solutions to their problems. In many cases, all it takes is telling them about a what form they have to fill out or what number to call.

Of course, many times we see clients with much more complicated situations that require sophisticated legal advice and representation. However, some of the most distressed people we meet walk out the door with renewed confidence and a direction just from a quick consultation about a simple matter they were originally confused about.

I really hope you enjoy my adventures in law and I look forward to sharing them with you. My first aim is that you are entertained and along the way, you may also learn something.

Just remember that what you find here is NOT legal advice and should not be relied upon in making decisions about your own personal situation. You should always consult with a lawyer personally before taking any action regarding your own immigration situation.

That is all for now and I look forward to sharing with you more of my stories!
