We are engaged by Criminal Law Firms, Injury Law Firms, Barristers, Lawyers, and Family Law Firms:

  • To provide expert evidence to their clients on migration rules, to help reduce the sentences handed down on criminal matters (to ensure the sentencing Judge takes into account how the sentence will also impact visa considerations). This has become very relevant with the new character rules being strictly enforced.
  • To arrange criminal justice visas (a visa available for people charged with Australian offences, who need a visa to stay in Australia to defend the charges), noting this approach also assists negotiations with prosecutors.
  • To deal with any visa issues that are triggered by divorce or contested custody matters.
  • To arrange bridging visas to allow people to deal with their separate legal affairs.
