Costs

All potential new clients must book a consultation with us first in order for us to advise and assess eligibility for the many visa categories available. If we determine that you are eligible to make an application, you will be quoted an amount that we will charge to prepare and lodged an application on your behalf.

As lawyers, we are required under the Under Division 3 of Part 4.3 of the Legal Profession Uniform Law (Vic) (“Uniform Law”), we must disclose to you information relating to legal costs which sets out in detail exactly how you will be charged and when you will be charged in relation to any matter.

Our fees are carefully calculated. All matters vary and each case is carefully appraised by us which takes into account, the complexity of the case and the applicant's details and background.

By treating each case as unique and individual each client can be confident to receive the individual care and service required. 

All fees are inclusive of GST and do not include disbursements such as government, assessing bodies fees or any other third party fees due and payable during the process of your application.

Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss our services or to make an appointment for a consultation.

DIBP lodging fees can vary without notice. See http://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa/Fees for current DIBP fees.

Trust Account

Each client is allocated their own trust account once we have entered into a cost agreement and it is our practice as a law firm to have all payments towards costs deposited into our statutory trust account which is subject to annual audits. 

The full lump sum or estimate (please refer to your costs agreement on how you will be charged) amount should be deposited into our trust account by the time all work on your matter is completed.  All third party fees due for services provided in relation to your matter are paid on your behalf from this account.

An updated statement showing a record of transactions and the balance of your trust account is available for you to review through the Client Portal.
