Take the stress out of immigration
Your 30-minute Portugal Immigration Consultation (€57)
Ana Clara and her team have helped loads of our clients with their visa and citizenship applications. We ask every client for feedback, and it is consistently excellent.
What do you get in the consultation?
Hi there, we are Alastair and Alison,
We have lived in six countries on four continents and traveled extensively. Each time we’ve dealt with the complexities of a new immigration system. It is not a fun experience; let’s face it!
Frustration and red tape typically drives us to hire an immigration lawyer. We have had some excellent lawyers to help us out, but we also had shockingly bad experiences. We found that hiring the immigration lawyer that comes up top in a google search does not get you the best result.
Our clients continuously asked us for recommendations on good immigration lawyers. So we developed our continuous assessment process, where we do a lot of research and interviews to find immigration partners to provide you with excellent service and fair pricing.
We have sent hundreds of clients to Goncalo and his team. We ask every single person how it went, and we continuously get great feedback on their service. We hope we have made your visa or citizenship journey a lot easier for you through our partner network!
How do we find the best lawyers for our clients?
Our Assessment Process is Just the Beginning
Once we select our partners, we monitor their performance with every client.
If you use a Where Can I Live partner, we’ll ask you how it went – and we do with every single client. We also do in-depth interviews with some clients where we want more information. And we consistently monitor other review sites and press for any red flags.
If a partner doesn’t meet our standards, we terminate the collaboration. And, yes, we have fired partners when their standards have slipped. We will not accept poor service for our clients.
Do we trust our selection and assessment process?
That is why we offer a 100% guarantee of satisfaction. If you are unhappy with your initial consultation, just tell us what went wrong, and we’ll refund you immediately. Our long-term business counts on the performance of our partners.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What will the lawyer cost?
Every application varies, and so very few lawyers publish a price list. However, your lawyer will give you an accurate quote once you have had your initial consultation. At this point, you’ll have agreed on the services you need, so don’t proceed without a clear quote for the complete service. If a lawyer has quoted prices on their website, check to ensure it covers all parts of the service. You don’t want any surprise add-ons and exclusions. And, does your fee cover an administrative appeal if your application is rejected?
Q. If I use your Portugal Immigration lawyer, what services will they offer?
Our partners are specialists in Portugal immigration. They can assist with all residence permits and visas for people to move to Portugal. They handle immigration and related issues for both EU and non-EU citizens. Our partners can help you, no matter where you plan to live in Portugal.
Some people opt for the full valet service; others only want their application reviewed before submission. You can agree on the legal services you want from the company and the costs in the initial consultation.
Q. Why should I pay for a consultation?
Most reputable immigration firms in Europe charge for a consultation. This allows them the time to understand your situation and give you an honest assessment of your situation. And it means you’ll meet with a qualified immigration lawyer, not the intern or admin. Free consultations are sometimes a marketing strategy to push a standard sales pitch.
Q. Why should I use the Where Can I Live recommended Portugal Immigration Lawyer?
We have a detailed selection process for all our partners. We are so confident of the quality of their professional service and value that we offer a 100% money-back guarantee. We’ll only ask why you were unhappy to improve our service; you’ll get your money back immediately no matter the answer.
Q. Will my application be accepted?
There is no guarantee. Each consulate has slightly different processes to obtain a visa or residence permit. Plus, the requirements change over time. However, our immigration lawyers will understand your situation and the requirements. They’ll ensure you don’t submit an application before it has the best possible chance of being approved.
Q. Does the Portugal Immigration Lawyer speak English?
Yes, they speak fluent English.
