happy clients

Family and business visas, residency, citizenship. All covered. Easy as 1-2-3.

Want an experienced immigration lawyer at your side? Just three steps to reaching your goal:




FREE 15-minute telephone consultation with an immigration lawyer.


Tell us what you're after. We'll give some initial thoughts and advise whether we can help. If you like what you hear, we proceed to the next step - a meeting.




Initial consultation - all visa and citizenships matters.


Come and meet us for about an hour. We'll hear about your history and need; and then we'll provide advice regarding options, plus provide you an approximate  cost estimate.






We prepare a plan of work and cost agreement.


It will describe what we will do and how much it will cost. Costs will vary from a few hundred dollars for simple matters to several thousand dollars for complex issues. You review. If you're happy, sign, and we begin working for you. Payment by bank transfer or credit card (credit card payments subject to a 2.46% surcharge to cover transaction fees)

Family and business visas - help every step of the way.

We are skilled migration agents and immigration lawyers. This means we can assist with relatively straightforward matters - which we do in a straightforward and value-for-money manner. But if your issue is complex and/or there are difficulties with government agencies, we provide the heavyweight legal support you will need.
