  • Advice on how to make your stay lawful

  • Any critical dates which might apply in your case
  • Possible problems arising from your situation
  • An indication of the average processing time for the application
  • A written contract with stages of application and a written report on the advice given to you.

Please note that we also do Pro-Bono work for refugees recognized as such under the Refugee Convention.

What To Bring To Your Consultation

Please bring the following to your consultation:

  • Any documents in relation to your immigration status
  • Any orders you have received form a government department
  • Your current passport.

Cancellations and no shows

If you give us more than two business days’ notice, we are more than happy to credit paid fees towards rescheduling another consultation at a suitable time and date, in case you cannot make the scheduled time and date. However, if you do not show to your scheduled appointment without notifying us you will still be charged in full.
