Hello James, I was hoping for a telephone consultation, is that not available?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
is that a cost of 59 instead of the cost of 48 or is it in addition to the 48?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Hello?
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

It will be available shortly. As far as the cost, I do not have access to your billing information. You would have to contact Customer Service about what you've paid. I do know that phone calls are "Additional Services," so there is an additional fee.

Thank you kindly for your time, I would like to cancel my request for a consult.
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Please do not write "Hello?" or otherwise check in with me. It takes me time to prepare responses. Checking in puts your question at the bottom of my list of questions because the system thinks you last responded. That causes you additional delays.

Are you sure? I can help you without a phone call too, if you would like.
