Visa Type: Partner (subclass 100) visa

Dear Christina and Chris,
 
We honestly cannot thank you enough for making our long-awaited wish to come true. We have experienced a major problem in regards with our partner visa application in which we seeked help from a previous migration agency which did not provide us with realistic options and we ended up being unsuccessful despite the long process and financial strain it has caused us. Luckily, we came for you service as we have heard a lot about the great work your agency does for families. Right from the beginning, we knew we made the best choice. We felt so at ease and actually helped regain our hope back that we lost due to the previous problems we have come across with our previous migration agency. Christina is very kind and caring and also reassured us every step of the way. She was always quick to respond and always attended to our queries and concerns promptly and in a very kind way. Both her and Chris are very thorough with their work and ensured that we had the best application to give us the best chances of being approved. And they did not disappoint! We were approved of our partner visa and now also my partner's permanent visa in just a short time!
 
Words are definitely not enough to express how grateful and thankful we are for the services of Work visa lawyers, and in particular to Christina who has been a God-send to us due to all her expertise and knowledge. They have made our lifelong dream come true.
 
I always will recommend work visa lawyers, particularly Christina to anyone that I know that may be in need of visa support.
 
Thank you Christina and Chris!!!
 
Cecilia and Bryle

After starting the visa on my own, I received an unexpected call from the Immigration Department about a major problem with my application that would lead to a refusal. I didn’t know what to do, but after speaking with family and friends I decided to contact Work Visa Lawyers. I was lucky enough to speak with Christina Lien, who quickly understood my problem and organised a solution. Just one week after our initial appointment we were granted the visa. Work Visa Lawyers really know how to help on legal matters and are very compassionate.  I will recommend their good office to my friends and Family if they ever have any legal problems.

'Thank you to the team at Work Visa Lawyers, in particular Chris and Christina in their support and expertise in lodging our Partner Visa 801 (part B) application.

Any visa has a measure of stress attached, in particular the feeling of being in limbo involved with the period of wait time to hear from immigration.

As we had already been successful in our temporary visa, it was a natural course to engage Work Via Lawyers to continue our journey,

which we had been advised could take up to two years to hear an outcome.

Very clear and concise information was provided to ensure that we had every document required to put our best case forward and Christina kept us informed

along the way and responded quickly when we sent through any queries.

We were overjoyed to receive a call from Christina, seven months after our application, to advise that Chris had been successful in his application.

Amid the onset of COVID19 and restrictions, this was a wonderful bit of news, and means that we can move forward with our plans, once allowed.

Once Chris is eligible to apply for Citizenship, we will be in contact with the Work Visa Lawyer team again.

We will continue to promote their excellent work ethic and support to others.'

Chris Johnson took on our case and was able to help us in this journey. The staff at Work Visa Lawyers are very professional organisation - from the office manager Karina to the immigration lawyers, we can only sing their praises. In particular, Christina Lien proved to be a Godsend to us. Her calm and professional manner took away most of the anxiety of filling out different applications. Her attention to detail and her constant guidance made life so much easier for us. From the time we applied for the Partner Visa and lodged a bridging visa, it took just over 12 months to be granted permanent residency. We could not be happier with everything they've done for us. We would definitely recommend Work Visa Lawyers to others who want to apply for an Australian Visa and to those who are having problems with their visa application.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

We could not be happier with our recent experience with Work Visa Lawyers and in particular all of the support and work that Christina and her team put into our approved application for a Partner Visa – offshore.

Moving our international family back to Australia was always going to be a big decision and stressful process, but right from our preliminary Skype consultation with Christina she set a professional but relaxed tone and assured us we were making a good decision about which visa to apply for (offshore vs onshore) and that the timing we had in mind could work.

My wife and I had a tight timeframe in mind and laid out our expectations up front. Christina more than delivered, responding to emails and questions daily at times and keeping us updated on all developments on her side.

We received our approved visa much faster than we had ever expected or even hoped and I have no doubt this was because of Christina and the work she put in.

We cannot thank Christina and the team at Work Visa Lawyers enough for everything they have done for our family. They took what is a very complicated and process and made it as straight-forward as is possible.

We highly recommend them if you are considering going through the same process.

The process of submitting a Visa application can be daunting, confusing and stressful, and you really want to make sure you get it right first go to give yourself the best chance of getting that approval. I'm quite an organised person, but the language used by Governments isn't always that straight forward and can be easily misinterpreted. There is also a huge volume of supporting documentation required and you must make sure you tick all of the required boxes.

Chris from Work Visa Lawyers has been a fantastic support these past almost 2 years - from running through our initial paperwork, giving us advice and clear guidance re. updates to be made, and evidence to be gathered; to answering frantic emails, he has been more than fair with his time and knowledge.

I would never attempt to submit something as complicated as a Partner Visa without at least having a consultation with a lawyer and highly recommend Chris - a huge thank you to Chris and his support team, we could not be more relieved that this has now come to a closure with the grant of my Partner's Visa just this morning.

We have been extremely happy with the services provided by [Work Visa Lawyers] From day one they have been supportive, professional and attentive in relation to our case.

Thankyou to the staff and solicitors who were friendly and caring to our needs. The people supporting our case made it a stress free process and we are very appreciative and thankful for all their hard work.

Thanks to the help from Christina, and everyone at Work Visa Lawyers, I was able to successfully get my visa.

They were with me every step, which allowed me to live my life with very little worry during the long process. They got in touch with my partner and me immediately whenever something came up or changed. I was very nervous about the whole process because we are not the typical couple. Especially because we are a same sex couple.

Without Christina I am certain that I wouldn’t have gotten my visa in the end. We honestly cannot thank Christina and her team enough for what they did for us.

Work Visa Lawyers were recommended to us to assist with the process of gaining my partner visa, subclass 820. From the very first contact with Chris he has been nothing short of helpful, informative and patient.

I felt quite overwhelmed with the forms and the process but Chris was always happy to assist and answer any questions I had in a timely manner that put me at ease and meant I was doing what was required. He provided excellent advice, knowledge and understanding of what we needed and the best way to proceed.

I am so appreciative of the work that Chris and the team at Work Visa Lawyers have done for me, I look forward to dealing with them again next year to assist with my application to become a permanent citizen.
