Our Associate Lawyer and Migration Agent Glenn Joseph Pereira has over 22 years of expertise in Australian Migration Law.

We understand that Immigration Law is constantly changing, and can be very confusing for people who attempt to lodge applications on their own. Applications lodged without legal advice tend to fail because of poor presentation and failure to meet with the legislative criteria. We therefore offer our services to assist clients in the lodgement of applications in a cost efficient manner.

All registered migration agents must comply with the Code of Conduct of the Australian Office of Migration Agents’ Registration Authority (OMARA).We therefore encouraged you to look at the Code of Conduct and the Australian Migration Agents Profession booklet which provides information on the regulation of the migration advice industry.
