Protection, Refugee & Humanitarian Visas

Australia’s refugee laws are complex and ever evolving. It is therefore important to seek legal advice prior to lodging an application in order to have the best chances of success.

Most of our immigration lawyers have been in your shoes – having made the journey themselves after growing up in war-torn countries. They know what it is like to navigate complex laws and an overwhelming system. Our lawyers are highly skilled and sensitive towards the issues faced by refugees. We provide culturally sensitive, gender sensitive, clear and realistic legal advice to help you achieve your goals and make Australia your home.

>p>Our Principal Solicitor, Besmellah Rezaee, has been recognised by international governments for his pre-eminence in this field and has directly contributed to the drafting Refugee Status Determination guidelines. He continues to provide ongoing expert opinions.

Our lawyers can speak a number of languages including Hazaragi, Dari, Urdu, Pashtu, and Persian.

Our lawyers assist you every step of the way including:

  • Preparing and lodging the application
  • Accompanying you to Departmental interviews
  • Responding to any adverse information raised
  • Appealing a decision to refuse you a visa

Some of the visas we can assist with are:

  • Protection (subclass 866) visas
  • SHEVs & TPVs, including subsequent SHEVs
  • Community Support Program (CSP) visas
  • Humanitarian visas, including woman at risk visas
