Fees Payment & Policy

FEES

Our consultations are organised by appointment only. Once you make an appointment with us, one of our Lawyers who are also Registered Migration Agents will evaluate your status and advise you on your options.

We charge a fee of A$ 440 for our initial consultancy. We charge a special rate of $ 220 to on-shore students.   During the first appointment, we will quote you a fixed lump sum fee for you specific matter or quote you an hourly rate. Our hourly rate is $ 330.00 per hour. If we agree to a lump sum fee for a particular matter, our costs are capped to that amount.

We give you a cost agreement and disclosure statement in keeping with the Legal Profession Act 2004 . This document explains in detail the costs that you will incur and any extra fees that you may be likely to incur. It is our policy to deposit your money in to our Statutory Trust Account if payment is made before the work is commenced. This account is subject to audit by the Regulatory Body.
