In my view these guys are legends, and they are the best migration law firm in Australia. I consulted 5 other migration firms and none of them could match the expertise of Gold Migration Lawyers. If you have a complex application, go to Gold Migration!read more

We hired Gold Migration Lawyers to assist us with our partner visa application. At the time the department’s processing time was over 24 months. GML lodged our application and it got approved in 4 months. We are extremely happy with the outcome as I know people who have been waiting for years for their partner visa. I highly recommend Gold Migration Lawyers. The team is amazing!read more

I am very grateful to the lawyer Peter Peng. Although my case is very troublesome, he was very patient to help me solve it step by step. At that time, I only had 20 days to provide supplementary information from the Immigration. I found this law firm, the owner, Ramtin.  He is very confidence and professional also made me full of confidence in him. They added different viewpoints and legal opinions in the explanation letter, which successfully made the immigration officer accept my explanation.  The next day after submitting the information, the Immigration officer immediately accepted my explanation and asked me to have a medical examination.It took two months to successfully get the Partner(820) VISA, I am very grateful to them  I highly recommend this law firm , they are really pro and they can help you slove any problem.read more
