Please be aware that we charge for an initial consultation. Please refer to the
"Assessment of your case" section for further information.
Our legal costs per application vary depending on the complexity of a case and the
number of applicants involved. We will always give you a quote for our legal costs
before commencing a matter.
As lawyers, we are required under the Legal Profession Act 2004 (Vic) to
enter into a costs agreement with you which sets out in detail exactly how much
you will be charged, and when you will be charged in relation to making an application
on your behalf. The costs agreement also sets out the circumstances in which it
may be necessary to undertake extra work on your behalf (for example, where there
is an allegation made by DIAC about bogus documents or work experience in an application)
and the rate at which that extra work will be charged.
Our location and size means that our clients benefit from receiving expert legal
advice on migration matters at substantially less than larger city firms need to
charge. We do not have the same overheads as city firms, and these savings are passed
on to our clients.
