in pakistan all degrees need to be attested by HEC before submitting to immigration or universities abroad. if HEC (higher education commission) certifies it means its genuine. i don't see a reason to involve lawyer if HEC certifies it. Certify it from HEC and ministry of foreign affairs and then send it to CHC with a cover letter that its genuine and certified by HEC and Ministry of foreign affairs. may i ask you howcome 2 dependents aged 25 , 27 now were invovled in that application. were the rules different that time?? because these days rule say that dependant must be under 18 to accompany??
This is a perfect answer
, i actually cannot add one word more.
I am not aware of the education system in Pakistan, but we have a similar thing in my country, which means if your degrees are stamped by the educational institution, ministry of high education, ministry of foreign affairs, "it is done - that is it",
and no one can doubt it. Even the Canadian Embassy itself can stamp it after all of those stamps (for a fee), and that is what i have done for my degrees.
