Immigration is a complex area of law that involves extensive rules and regulations that often changed quickly. Broaden Legal has a well-established immigration team. Our immigration lawyers have rich experience and up-to-date knowledge about Australian immigration law and policy which is why we are able to assess your circumstances and provide you with customised advice with respect to visas or immigration plans suitable to you and your family.

Broaden Legal can help you with various categories of visa applications including:

  • Various investment-based Visa and Entrepreneur Visa
  • Employer-sponsored Visa
  • Spouse sponsored Visa
  • Skilled based Visa
  • Family reunion and Resident return
  • Visa cancellation/application rejection

As immigration and litigation professionals, Broaden Legal can also help when your visa is refused by the Department of Home Affairs.

Most Australian visas refusal decisions have the right to be appealed. The most common place to appeal a visa refusal decision is the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. However, what clients are often not aware and confused about is the strict time limit for lodging an appeal application as well as the merits of appeal.

For complicated cases, it is crucial for applicants to be properly represented. It is a wise idea to have legal professionals in Broaden Legal by your side from the beginning of the process.
