Who We Work With
Unfortunately we can’t help everybody. We are able to provide premium quality visa and citizenship services to a select group of clients because we say “NO” more often than our competitors. We are not right for you if:
- You are looking for sponsorship or academic study advice.
- You are looking for a visa for another country (besides Australia).
- You are looking to circumvent Australian laws.
How To Work Together
The first step is a consultation to discuss your needs and how we can help. Our consultation attracts a nominal fixed fee that can be aa credit towards any work you require us to do after the consultation.

What Migration Agents Do
Our team of registered migration agents are qualified and skilled at looking at migration objectives and how to achieve it . Migration agents are appointed as personal representatives of individuals and businesses seeking some type of Australian immigration or citizenship approval.
Migration Agents obtain their registration from the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (the OMARA). This registration is renewed each year. The law in Australia requires lawyers seeking to offer immigration advice and assistance to be registered migration agents. This rule is likely to change and immigration lawyers might not need a separate registration with the OMARA in order to give immigration advice.
What Immigration Lawyers Do
An Immigration lawyer is also called an Australian Legal Practitioner. Immigration lawyers are admitted to practice law in Australia. As an Immigration Lawyer and a registered Australian Migration Agent, not only do I assist with immigration lodgments with the Department of Immigration, but I also handle appeals to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT), the Federal Circuit Court and the Federal Court of Australia.

1. Get to know us better
Try us today and see the difference.
What might you get from less passionate immigration lawyers and migration agents? Who knows?
I hope this website gives you a small taste of what we are about at MyVisa®. The biggest difference between what our practice is what we can offer you – a commitment to getting the best outcome for you, not just “an” outcome.
So, call me and get to know us better!
2. Your First Step
The first step toward getting a better immigration outcome is to have a realistic game plan – wecan help with this. If you are ready to make an application, we’ll make sure you are on track. Not just any track. The best track possible. You won’t often get a second chance to make a good impression with Immigration, so thinking things through from the outset makes a lot of sense.
3. Why Get Paid Advice?
Getting paid advice makes sense for two reasons. Firstly, advisors can be sued and more likely to be correct in this advice than friend and family. Secondly, you get to get back your life, with another person having your back. Importantly, you don’t know what you don’t know. Even if you think you have it all under control, you’ll get peace of mind.
4. My Tips For Getting Better Visa Outcomes:
- Know your very best option, not the easiest one.
- Be confident the advice you are getting is 100% right for you.
- Write a better submission (or get help) to save you grief later.
- Acting sooner works better.
5. Challenging Cases
Without an immigration lawyer, you might compromise your chances of getting a more difficult visa approved. It might even take longer than is necessary.
Has your visa application been refused? Or your visa cancelled? Or are you worried that a visa refusal or visa cancellation is just around the corner? Now is a great time to get advice. I get it! Your stomach churns as soon as you read the email.
I get to read refusal emails all the time and my stomach churns too. I’ve been where you’ve been and I understand how your life seems now to be a “film” shot in slow motion. Bad news – it’s going to get worse before it gets better.
6. Bigger Problems
say “getting worse” because unless you fully understand how the recent notification or immigration decision will affect you, it will be like you are looking down the barrel of a loaded shotgun, not knowing when the shot will go off. This is the nature of very strict immigration laws and policies in Australia, managed by the Department of Home Affairs.
Take a deep breath. Ask yourself this key question – “In how many ways does this latest development limit my options?“
Just one? “How big is the risk I now face of losing the life that I have come to know or expect?
7. My Advice
My advice is to get “real”, fast. After you properly understand the bad news, you’ll be able to make far better immigration decisions for yourself. Yes! Be “real” now.
Don’t get your advice sugar-coated to make it appear more pleasant than it is. And don’t settle for half-baked advice offered easily by friends, relatives, and free-consult migration agents.
You see – in the last 18 years, I’ve seen thousands and thousands of immigration notifications, visa refusal decisions, and visa cancellations. Most haven’t been properly explained to visa applicants or sponsors like you.
8. Come For Confidence
If you know what you are doing and there is limited risk or consequences that you can live with, then you probably might not need to have an advisor.
9. Are You 100% Confident?
There are many online applications made each day by applicants who can not afford or see any incremental benefit is using an advisor.
If you don’t need me, then please don’t come to me!
But if you haven’t got clarity or confidence today or you want to start improving your situation now (perhaps after a false start) rather than flying blind, then book in a consultation with us.
10. Why Use An Immigration Lawyer?
Immigration Lawyers can help you lodge a better visa application.
You’ll get practical advice on how to avoid a visa refusal or a visa cancellation.
We offer a very outcome-focused service for obtaining Australian visa grants and immigration troubleshooting.
Sound interesting? It should – because many of our clients make mistakes with their immigration applications before coming to see us.
Don’t be a visa applicant or sponsor who decides to consult an Immigration Lawyer only after things have gone wrong.
11. Help you can expect:
We help many applicants respond to Department of Immigration “emails”, “invitations to comment” and “notices”. We can also help you make sure your next visa application is made properly.
Right from the outset, we’ll make your ride a little easier for you – with honest, realistic and accurate immigration advice.
Every week we help people like you get visa grants to come to Australia or stay here for longer. Together we have dealt with thousands of visa cases and we have argued several hundred visa appeals.
We spend most of our time learning about the latest developments in immigration law. Also every week, we negotiate cases and communicate with Immigration Officers and make submissions to AAT (Immigration Tribunal) members.
We attend (yes – we sit right next to you) at Administrative Appeal Tribunal (AAT) hearings, prepare submissions for visa cancellation and refusal appeals and seek the review of visa decisions in the Federal Circuit Court (FCC) and in the Federal Court of Australia – looking carefully for administrative decisions infected with legal error, often referred to as “jurisdictional error”.
