IMMIGRATION LAW

Immigration law is one of the most complex and dynamic area of Australian law. Changes are frequent and may be effected by legislation or simply by policy. 

 

Initial consultation

 

The initial consultation is the most important in receiving and assessing information, and then putting in place a strategy. 

 

For this our charges are $300 + GST. In the event of receiving instructions to proceed this initial consultation fee will be discounted from the fixed fee for service offered.

 

Advice

 

We advise applicants for visas, temporary only, temporary with path to permanent residence, immediate permanent residence, and businesses in and outside Australia on establishment as immigration sponsors, compliance with immigration regulations and policy.

 

Our services are regulated by the Legal Profession Uniform Law Act 2014 and the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority Code of conduct. As lawyers, all confidentiality is ensured and protected by law.

HOW DO WE CHARGE

 

Fixed fees

 

On receiving instructions, we will fix a fee for our services. This fee will remain fixed so that the client will not receive any nasty shock on completion of the matter. The fixed fee may vary if our instructions are varied by our client. In that case, a new estimate for the new instructions will be given that may be accepted or not by the client before the varied instructions are worked on.  Where a fee is charged for an initial conference, this will be discounted for the fixed fee to be agreed for subsequent action by us.

 

Initial consultation

 

For this our charges are $300 + GST. In the event of receiving instructions to proceed this initial consultation fee will be discounted from the fixed fee for service offered.

 

Payment of anticipated costs

 

Generally, we will request a payment of anticipated fees or a substantial amount of them into our trust account on accepting instructions.
