HOW IT WORKS
Take the first step, tell us your goal and find out if you are eligible. This is a free assessment valued at several hundred of dollars.
Meet with us over a cup of coffee to discuss the pathways available to you. It’s always best to meet in person at our HQ where our boardrooms are equipped to present you with tactical solutions:
With the variety of pathways we present to you, we find that using a simple process of elimination helps our clients with their decision. Things to consider:
slow or fast?
easy or difficult?
cheap or expensive?
Our lawyers will table a mutually suitable schedule, with the most important a lodgement date. We’ll hold your hand in the preparation of supporting evidence and explain the process so that you’d know what to expect.
SHARE YOUr STORY
If you feel that we’ve done a good job or you appreciate how difficult it was to achieve your goal, sharing your story motivates us to continue changing lives. With the current immigration landscape, sharing your journey with others is helpful. We like to call it a support network, where we help each other get through difficult times.
