Dear Work Visa Lawyers,

I would like to say a big thank to your guys and I am really appreciate how the support has been for last four months working on my 190 state sponsored permanent visa.

My situation is really tricky and I have been rejected by the state nomination when I first tried to apply by myself. Then I decided to look for help from Chris who was highly recommended by one of my friends. Luckily, my state nomination was successfully approved after Chris’ magic.

Once the trust is built, I decided to let Chris to deal with my 190 visa submission as well. We submit the documents around early November (2016) and I was granted the permanent residency on 17th December, 2016. In other... Read more

Business Investment Migration

Business Innovation and Investor Visa Subclass 188 - For Successful Business Owner

Country of origin: U.S.
Dear Chris and Christine, I would love to take this opportunity to thank you for the tremendous effort you put into our Work Visa application. The decision for our family to move to Australia was an easy one for us but we would not have been able to do ANY of it without all of your help and guidance. The fact that we are able to bring our 4 children to this wonderful country to raise them is an amazing blessing. You both worked tirelessly to make sure that all aspects of our Visa Application were done perfectly so as not to hinder the process for us. The fact that you always replied to our emails and questions in a very timely matter helped out very much and put our minds at ease many times during the process. We hope and pray that other family members will soon follow us in our move and we will highly recommend Work Visa Lawyers and the both of you specifically. We look forward to beginning our new life in Australia and Thank You both from the bottom of our hearts

Partner and Family Migration

Partner Visa Onshore (subclasses 820 and 801)

Testimonial received: 16 May 2016

Dear Chris and Michelle,

Our family is forever in your debt for the wonderful work and the ultimate result, getting the partner Visa approved and being blessed with our beautiful baby boy.

Your professional, compassionate and sensitive approach to our situation and ongoing support made the very stressful and lengthy process manageable and easier to live with. When we first came to you we were facing the unthinkable and while you never gave us false hope, you made us believe that what we had and wanted to achieve, was within our reach.

Kim and I put our complete trust into both and you rewarded with compassionate understanding and unserved commitment to our lives, our hopes, our future.

May I say to anyone who find themselves having to deal with the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection, do not underestimate the complexities of their procedures and the strictly worded Immigration Legislation. You generally only have one chance of getting a particular Visa granted/approved and for that you need highly skilled, competent and professional migration legal team.

I don’t even want to imagine, how things could have been, if it weren’t for Work Visa Lawyers and... Read more

Dear Chris,

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for everything that you did helping us to gain my temporary partner visa and health waiver.

At a time that was overwhelming and confusing, your calm manner really helped to focus us at every step of the way. You made a clear plan of the information and documents we needed to gather and kept us informed throughout the process.

Living in the country it was great that we could Skype you to discuss progress rather than having to make the 4 hour round trip. I really appreciated that you were honest and didn’t make any promises about what could be achieved.
