Do I need an immigration lawyer?
Your decision to move to Australia will be one of the most important decisions of your life. It is very important that your visa application is prepared correctly and the Department receives all the evidence to satisfy the criteria.
Experienced immigration lawyers can explain the process and assist you to find the best pathway to reach your goal of residency or work or to reunite your family in Australia.
Immigration laws in Australia are complex and frequently changing and your application is greatly assisted by someone with legal training and experience.
In Australia, anyone providing immigration advice must be registered with the Migration Agents Regulation Authority (MARA). At North Star Law, we are accredited under MARA but are also fully qualified lawyers, having practised law in New South Wales for many years.
At North Star Law we can assist you with:
- Partner visas (spouse and prospective marriage visas);
- Student visas;
- Skilled and sponsored work visas;
- Family visas;
- Business migration and investment visas;
- Australian citizenship.
Partner visas or Prospective Marriage Visas
North Star Law can assist with all the documents and evidence required. This includes information about your health and medical history, good character, the status of your relationship, records of your life together and future plans.
If you wish to bring your parents to live in Australia they may be eligible if you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident or have been living in Australia lawfully for at least 2 years. Your parents must meet all the other family test criteria and the health and good character requirements.
You may be eligible for a skilled work visa if, among other things, you hold skills that are needed in Australia. There are also sponsored and nominated visas for workers who are sponsored or nominated by an Australian employer or a state or territory agency or government body. There are also avenues for investors for those with the means to satisfy the criteria.
North Star Law will provide you with tailored advice and assistance to ensure you have the best chances of successful migration to Australia. Contact us today to discuss your immigration needs.
