Do You Need an Australian Immigration Lawyer for Visas?

Many people choose to visit or emigrate to Australia. The visa process can be a challenging one, but an experienced immigration lawyer may be able to help you. Whether or not you need an immigration lawyer to assist you during this process depends on your individual circumstances and the complexity of your case. Resolute Legal explores what you should consider when applying for a visa.

A Straightforward Case

If you have decided which visa you’d like to apply for, and you are confident you can complete the process without any assistance, you may not need an immigration lawyer. Holiday or working holiday-type visas are easier to obtain and, whilst the application process can be lengthy, many will be able to apply without the assistance of a visa lawyer.

Added Complexities

If your case seems complex, or you have concerns about eligibility for a visa, it may be time to seek the advice of an experienced visa lawyer. Longer-term visas typically involve a more in-depth application and have a higher upfront cost than temporary visas. If you’re considering long-term or permanent visa immigration, a lawyer can give you the best chance of success. At Resolute Legal, our immigration lawyers offer personalised guidance on the visa immigration process and help you understand your options.

Immigration Appeals and Compliance

A refused or cancelled visa may mean it’s time to contact an experienced immigration lawyer. Resolute Legal can review the decision and advise you of the strength of your case. We can assist in preparing the appeal, drafting documentation, representing you in hearings and, ultimately, advise you of your best options at any given time.

Issues relating to immigration compliance can be similarly difficult to navigate alone. A visa lawyer can help you understand your obligations and represent you if there are any legal proceedings.

Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to hire an immigration lawyer is a personal one that will depend on your specific circumstances and application process. If you feel unsure how to proceed, an immigration lawyer in Townsville can provide experienced advice. Contact Resolute Legal online or call 07 4724 5563.
