It is cheaper on your own
Some people think that without a lawyer they are saving money. The same thinking often applies when doing car or home repairs themselves; until it gets hard of course.
Then they are stuck in the middle of a major problem and call for professional help only to find it costs just as much, if not more, than getting help in the first place. Plus the professional can often find ways of saving them money that the person never even thought of.
With Australian visas you not only lose your application fee with a refusal, you usually have to pay to fly overseas and reapply from your home country.
So you add in the airfares, relocation costs, time away from friends and or family in Australia, loss of opportunities here and loss of work. No savings there!
It is easier on your own
Now, that is funny!
Have you ever found dealing with the government easy? We bet not.
All over the world citizens find government bureaucracies frustrating, annoying and insulting. It may have something to do with their virtual unaccountability, their lack of skill and experience or maybe, to be honest, they just do not care!
We will make them care for you as we know how to use the law for that.
I pay taxes to the Australian Government – they will look after me
Yes, and the world is flat and pigs fly backwards in summer.
Do you ask the government how much tax to pay? No way. You get advice and pay as little as you can.
Would you trust your life or your family’s lives to a public servant? No way. Why, therefore, would you trust your migration to them, when migration represents the rest of your life in almost every case?
Ii is quicker on your own
This is never true!
We have had partner visas approved on the same day they are lodged whereas they take 4 – 6 months or even more without our professional help. We can get 457 visas in less than a week compared to 6 weeks or more.
We get no special favours from the government; we just know exactly what they want for a quick visa approval. We have client testimonials proving all of this.
Visa application are too easy to need help, especially from a lawyer
Everything is easy until it gets hard. Ignorance is bliss (yeah sure!).
Knowledge is power. How could anyone honestly know something is easy if they have never tried? You take the risk if you want to find out the hard way.
Why would so many immigration lawyers and agents exist if it was all so easy? Think about it. We fill a real need in the community.
There is no danger with having a Visa refusal or cancellation, I can just apply again and succeed
Not often true.
One client of ours is stuck back in the UK with a 3 year re-entry ban right now because she believed this lie.
The government does not forget your visa refusal or the reasons for it. It is on record for many years.
They will certainly look at your record when you make another application and they will not make a decision with a clean and unbiased mind. You can bet on that.
A previous refusal never helps.
I can just do what my friend did because they did it on their own
Don’t listen to dinner party rumours, gossip and the advice of friends and family about visas: no two cases are alike, so get professional advice from us; your licensed immigration lawyers.
No one but a migration agent is really allowed by law to give migration assistance in Australia – if you are getting advice ask to see that person’s license to give advice or else tell them you aren’t interested as they could be telling you the wrong thing and it could detrimentally affect you forever!
Let us help you. We are responsible, experienced and successful professionals.
