Dependent Family Members

We work to ensure families can stay together. We understand the rules and the processes and we make them easy for you.

Keeping Families Together - we facilitate family reunion through extensive experience and devotion to getting it right

Fiances and Proposed Civil Partners

Parents, Grandparents and other Dependent Relatives

Victims of Domestic Violence

Family members of Points Based System migrants

Resolving prior refusals
