Migration Law

In a society where just about everything can be found with just a click, you might be wondering whether it’s worth getting an Australian migration lawyer to help you with the application process.

Migration law in Australia is complex and constantly changing. As a result, navigating the system can be confusing. Applying for a visa is also an expensive process so it’s important that the lawyer or registered migration agent acting for you gets it right the first time or you could be hit with additional costs, needing to appeal the decision or lengthy delays.

Applying for a visa is also an expensive process so it is important that the lawyer or registered migration agent acting for you gets it right the first time or you could be hit with additional costs and lengthy delays.

For this reason, you need a lawyer or a migration agent who has experience in lodging visa applications and will provide both professional migration advice and an honest assessment of your case.

Whatever your goal is for wanting to stay in Australia–travel, study, work, business, Australian citizenship, TNS Lawyers can save you the trouble of a delayed or denied application. We have the expertise in migration and we take the time to come up with the most appropriate immigration solutions. When discussing your application with you, we will let you know:

Get your visa application right the first time

Our migration lawyers can assist you with all kinds of visa application, including:

  • Business innovation and investment (provisional) visas

    With this visa, foreign investors or business owners can own and manage a business, invest in a business, or conduct entrepreneurial activity in Australia. Engage us for comprehensive legal services if you're looking to set up and run a business in Australia.

  • Employer nomination scheme or employer-sponsored visas

    This visa allows skilled workers who are nominated by their employer to live and work in Australia permanently. We are able to confidently advise clients on the employer visa eligibility requirements and guide them through the application process.

  • Family and partner visas

    There are multiple visa options available if you are joining your family in Australia. Connect with us to learn the available visas for your family members as well as the rights and application requirements per visa type.

  • Graduate visas

    This temporary visa is for international students who want to live, study, and work in Australia after finishing their studies. Considering the COVID-19 situation, students outside Australia can now apply. TNS Lawyers can run an eligibility assessment and then help you kick-start your career in Australia.

  • Skilled visas

    There are different visas available for individuals who are qualified to work or train in any eligible skilled occupation. We are able to provide legal advice to both the visa applicant and the sponsor, ensuring that your application has a higher chance of succeeding.

Visa appeals

It’s important to act promptly since appeals made to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) or federal court follow strict time limits.

Frequently asked questions about migration law

Yes. If your initial visa application is rejected, an immigration lawyer can help you file for a judicial review either at the Federal Circuit Court, Federal Court, or in some instances, at the High Court of Australia. Generally, a counsel will be engaged to advocate your case in court.

An immigration lawyer cannot hasten the approval of your application or appeal, but they can definitely help you avoid lengthy delays and extra costs. Our migration lawyers know what types of visas or reliefs are available to you. Therefore, they can help you compile all the relevant documents and proofread paperwork so you submit everything in one go.

Similar to other legal fees, this would depend on the services you need.
