Kazembe & Associates is transparent with legal fees and billing. We strive to be completely open and fair with our clients about the entire process, starting with the Retainer Agreement, so there are no hidden fees. We provide a full range of legal services regarding immigration to Canada, charged either in “block fees” or at an “hourly rate”.

BLOCK FEES – We’ll handle your immigration matter from start to finish, with guidance throughout the entire process. We’ll provide you with an upfront cost before we start, so you’ll know exactly how much you need to pay. We will provide you with a flexible payment schedule so the entire fee doesn’t have to be paid upfront.

HOURLY RATE – If you only need limited support with your immigration application, it’s more cost-effective to pay for our services on an hourly basis. We’ll provide you with a detailed account of our time spent on various tasks. 

Disbursement fees – In addition to our legal fees, you will be responsible for additional fees for disbursements such as medical reports, process servers fee, photocopying, and courier charges.

Application fees – The Canadian government collects application fees for processing immigration applications. These fees will be in addition to the fees we charge to assist you with your application.

CONSULTATIONS –  We provide our Initial Consultation at our standard hourly rate of $300/hourly.

RETAINERS AND PAYMENTS – To begin work on a file, we require an initial payment to open an account. The initial payment is held in our trust account and is kept there until the work is complete. Once we received the initial payment, we can immediately begin work on the file. After the application is prepared, the client is billed for the work done on file including legal/professional fees, application fees, administrative fees, taxes, and disbursements. We accept payment by cheque, cash, wire transfer, Interac email transfer and credit card.
