Outstanding success rate – your success is our success
At Timpson Immigration Lawyers we only engage clients that we know we can help. We don’t want to waste your time or money and we want to get results for you. If we feel that we can help you, an initial consultation with our legal professionals will be suggested (for a small charge of $330). If you are looking purely for a second opinion the consultation fee will be $550 with our accredited specialist. We send you a questionnaire to complete before the meeting, (please complete this as thoroughly as soon as possible in order to get the best out of your meeting). The initial consultation is key because it will allow our lawyers to assess your situation more thoroughly. (It is possible that your situation can be resolved just from that meeting). Australian immigration and citizenship law is governed by strict requirements. A high level of professional attention is needed to handle migration matters. That is why we can’t answer quick emailed questions, we need to know all the facts to advise you correctly and offer the best solution.
What happens in the first consultation?
The first consultation takes about an hour. It’s your opportunity to discuss your situation with us in detail. If your case can’t be resolved in one meeting, you’ll be given a full overview of the options that may be available to you. You’ll also receive an outline of the costs for each option. Those costs relate directly to your situation.
What to bring (or have with you for a teleconference)
At the very least, you need your passport. If you are in Australia as the holder of a substantive visa, a copy of the most recent visa granted to you is required. It is also helpful to bring any other documents that may support your ability to stay in Australia.
What you get from the first consultation
Resolving matters quickly is a priority for you – and for us. It’s for this reason that you will obtain:
- a clear idea about the options available to you
- a specific pathway for those options
- an expectation of how long it will take to resolve the matter
- a firm understanding on the potential costs involved.
You will walk away from that consultation with clarity and direction. Here’s what one of our customers said about the experience:
“I was very unsure of what I needed to do, or provide, or even the whole process. But the firm didn’t treat me like an idiot for not knowing what to do. You should use them. Simple. They will make the process very straight forward, and will get it right the first time.” ~ Client S
