Our Process

Immigration lawyer

Outstanding success rate–your success is our success

At Timpson Immigration Lawyers, we only engage clients that we know we can help. We don’t want to waste your time or money. We want to get results for you. If we feel that we can help you, an initial consultation with one of our immigration lawyers is the first step.

What happens in the first consultation?

The initial consultation is key because it will allow our lawyers to assess your situation thoroughly. We need to know all the facts to advise you correctly and offer the best solution. 

Australian immigration and citizenship law is governed by strict requirements. We will advise you in the first consultation if we believe we can help in your particular case and then start working on a plan of action. 

Your lawyer will discuss the process in detail and the costs that relate directly to your situation. For an idea of our fees, please see our pricing below.

What to bring 

If the lawyer needs to see anything specific in your consultation, we will contact you directly. 

What you get from the first consultation

Resolving matters quickly is a priority for you. The same goes for us. It’s for this reason that we will provide you with:

  • a clear idea about the options available to you
  • a specific pathway for those options
  • an expectation of how long it will take to resolve the matter
  • a firm understanding of the potential costs involved

Rest assured that you will walk away from your consultation with clarity and direction.

Here’s what one of our customers said about the experience:

“I was very unsure of what I needed to do, or provide, or even the whole process. But the firm didn’t treat me like an idiot for not knowing what to do. You should use them. Simple. They will make the process very straight forward, and will get it right the first time.”
