Take the stress out of immigration
“My meeting with Ana Clara went really well. She answered all of my questions and was very insightful! I’m very glad I found wherecani.live when I did because I’m in the middle of my process to apply for a D-7 visa and the law firm I hired was not giving me all the information I needed. So thank you for your page and for putting people like me in contact with your partners. “

Are you moving to Portugal? Does this resonate with you?
Hi, we are Alastair and Alison,
We have lived in six countries on four continents and traveled extensively. Each time we moved we’ve had to deal with a new immigration system. We’ve had to work out which residency permit is the best for us and deal with the uncertainty of not knowing the processes, procedures, and even if we’ll be accepted. We have hired many immigration lawyers to help us.
But it can go horribly wrong. Like this time
We hired a lawyer that was on page one of a Google search. From the start, communication was sporadic. Pricing was unclear. We had unnecessary seven am trips to the police station and mix-ups with appointments. And what happened next was nothing short of heartbreaking. Our son’s application was rejected. After MONTHS of preparation, we had to start the entire process from scratch. All the time standing in immigration queues like cattle was to no avail.
We decided there HAD to be a better way.
We developed our continuous assessment process and made it our mission to build a network of immigration partners that provide excellent service and fair pricing. So that you don’t have to go through what we did!
“Ana Clara was knowledgeable and was able to answer all of the questions I had. I have just paid the first installment for them to help with the D7 Visa as I was feeling a bit out of my depth with all the paperwork“

What do you get in the consultation?
“The immigration consultation went very well – the lawyer I spoke with was knowledgeable and was able to answer all of the questions I had. Once I’ve finished lining up all the requirements I need, I plan on engaging them to help assist with the visa application process itself. “

“The meeting went very well! Ana Clara was great! She shared a ton of information and lots to consider before I head to Portugal “

Our Assessment Process is Just the Beginning
Once we have selected our partners, we monitor their performance with every single 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 standard, 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 prices quoted on their website, check to make sure 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 and 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.
