Our Firm – Immigration Law Matters Pty Ltd

Our History

Immigration Law Matters was established in the mid 2005’s. The firm has continually grown since its foundation and has developed an envied reputation for the relentless protection of our clients’ interests. We have established clientele with interests in Australia and worldwide. The firm includes Migration Agents with diverse backgrounds that have the experience and legal skills to handle a wide variety of legal matters. Being registered with the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (OMARA) means that we are accountable, under Australian Law, for the Immigration Advice that we provide. This means that you will get the RIGHT advice every time. We are committed to providing the highest quality Australian Migration advice.  

Our Objective

To provide appropriate and cost-effective Australian Migration advice and assistance creating a win/win situation for our clients in an environment of first-class personal service.  

What Constitutes Win/Win?

Australian Migration advice must be appropriate to the personal or commercial background in which it occurs. We listen closely to ensure that we understand our clients’ instructions. Time and costs can be squandered if the representative does not come to grips with the issues from the start. Immigration Law Matters is well known as a jargon-free zone. We realize the importance of providing advice in clear, concise and consistent language. In complex migration cases, your representative will select and recommend a course of action which is likely to lead to the least expensive and best possible resolution. Equally, in non-complex situations, we stress the need for our representatives to think laterally to seek imaginative solutions. This fresh, client-oriented approach of Immigration Law Matters can cut time and save costs.
