Book A Consultation

Booking a consultation

Consultations can be provided in person at our Melbourne or Sydney office, by telephone, or via Skype.


Initial consultations

The first step in finding a solution to your visa problem and getting the right answers is to have a one on one consultation with a qualified Australian Immigration Lawyer.

The purpose of the consultation is to establish the relevant facts of your specific situation.  After gaining a thorough understanding of your goals we will formulate a proper strategy and outline the available visa options for your case.  For each visa option that may be relevant to your circumstances, we will explain all the visa requirements, the associated visa costs, the likely duration for the process and our opinion of the chances of success.

Legal consultations are 50mins in duration and must be booked in advance.  All consultations are provided by experienced Australian immigration lawyers.  If you decide to move forward and engage our lawyers to prepare and manage your visa matter, Live Work Australia will deduct the cost of the initial consultation from our professional fees to prepare your visa application.


Advisory Visa Assistance Appointments

Advisory Visa Application Assistance is suitable for clients who wish to manage their own visa application and use an Australian immigration lawyer to check through their visa application and supporting documentation before they lodge their visa application with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

All forms and supporting documentation must be emailed to our office before your appointment.  A qualified immigration lawyer will check through your forms and supporting documentation before your appointment.  During your consultation you will be advised of any corrective action you should take prior to visa lodgement.   This may include identifying gaps in your ability to meet the legislative requirements or insufficient documentary evidence to support your visa application.  

Advisory Visa Application Assistance includes 2.5 hours of legal assistance and review.  Advisory Visa Application assistance is not suitable for clients who are appealing a negative visa decision or are applying for a business or refugee visa.

Before your consultation

Live Work Australia will send you confirmation of your appointment time as well as an online questionnaire which you have the option to complete before your consultation.   We recommended that you complete the questionnaire as it will be reviewed by a lawyer before your consultation and will help you get the most value out of your consultation.


For those booking an Advisory Visa Assistance appointment, you will be required to email us your completed application forms and supporting documentation at least 5 working days before your appointment.


Live Work Australia provides fee-based services to advise, assist and represent clients through the visa application process.  If you are based outside of Australia you will be required to make payment for your consultation before your scheduled consultation.  We will send you an invoice and payments can be made using our online payment system.  Appointments can be re-scheduled with 24 hours notice.
