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

Work Visa Lawyers are exceptional in every way.  After having 2 other ‘professional’ visa firms fail to assist me secure an existing 457 visa holder as a new employee, I located Chris and his team.  I cannot speak highly enough of Chris, his team and the level of professionalism and expertise displayed from start to finish.  Where others had failed me completely Work Visa Lawyers succeeded.  I firmly believe the positive outcome was a direct result of them understanding the intricacies of Immigration and Visa applications fully in addition to having a passion for the people seeking their services – meaning you feel like Chris and his team are invested in your achieving your desired outcome.

By the time I met with Chris I had spent 1.5 years working with other firms and was incredibly frustrated with the complacency, genuine lack of focus on the end result and sense of being nothing more than a dollar figure.  For me securing this individual meant an enormous amount to my personal and professional future, so I was heavily invested.  From the initial...

From: United Kingdom
Testimonial received: 23 May 2016

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.
