Australian Immigration Lawyers took care of everything
I felt after the initial consultation that whilst as a registered and qualified immigration agent you would doubtless be able to follow the process and make the necessary submissions, I felt you more importantly had the “street smarts” to make things work when a case was not exactly a round peg round hole scenario. This was probably the most important factor, beyond simply taking the headache and stress away from me with my already full schedule. I am pretty sure I have been proven right about this!
