    Default Lawyer questions

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum. But I'm applying for a partnership based visa. My in laws hired and paid a lawyer for me and my partner. They also helped me with writing all my letters. I have something that I need to clarify. Actually I lied on my application and I want to make it right before it's too late. I want to tell the lawyer and ask for his advice but I'm not ready to tell my in laws and my partner before getting an advice from the lawyer. My question is does lawyer and client confidentiality still apply in this case?

    Your in-laws are paying the lawyer. He is the one who knows the terms under which your in-laws hired him. So he is the best person to ask if THEY are the client, or if YOU are, which may determine to what extent he would be bound to keep your business private from them. His answer to that first question would allow you to decide if you want to talk to him in more detail, or not.
