CLIENTS SUCCESS STORIES

  • De Novo Legal is a very loyal and professional team. I would recommend to everyone. My [Vietnamese] parents have been successfully obtaining a tourist visa for 3 people thanks to the excellent work of the team. My parents previously applied for visa 600 in February but got refused. Although they were financially capable of funding their trips, the Dept was not convinced by their complicated family situations and financial circumstances. We have sought advice from other places and got told to wait for at least 6 months before reapplying to avoid another refusal. We were convinced that my parents would not be able to get a visa within a short time frame to attend their daughter’s wedding. We were desperate until we found De Novo Legal. The team is so professional, especially our immigration lawyer. He was very honest and offered all possibilities. He worked closely with us through every steps of the application process. He listened to our story and tried to understand our complicated situation, and always kept in touch. Their hard work and such effort have earned us granted visas for our family. We are so thankful for their help, and thanks God for leading us to the team.

  • I applied for student visa but was refused by the Department because they did not believe I am a genuine student. De Novo Legal lodged a review application to the AAT for me. They prepared a written submission on my behalf and guided me all the way. Before the AAT hearing, they help me to prepare for the hearing. At the hearing, my immigration lawyer, Tsai, made oral submissions to the Member. The AAT believe I am a genuine student and remitted my case back to the Department for my student visa grant. My student visa has now been granted. I can’t thank De Novo Legal enough for their professional way in handling my case and helping me at the AAT.

  • My student visa application was refused by the Department of Immigration because they did not believe I was a genuine student. I asked a number of migration agents, but they said that my case was too difficult. One of my friends referred me to De Novo Legal. De Novo Immigration lawyer, Tsai, helped me to lodge an application to AAT to review the refusal and explained to me what document I need to provide and helped me to rewrite my GTE statement. Before the AAT hearing, De Novo Legal immigration lawyer provided the Tribunal written submissions. At the hearing, Tsai, made oral submissions to the Member. The AAT has accepted that I am a genuine temporary entrant and a genuine student. I am happy that De Novo Legal has helped me to obtain my student visa.

  • I received an excellence service by Mr Tsai from this firm and had the successful outcome from all of my cases. i had been using his legal advice twice and i’m overall satisfy by his performance upon working out on all my of cases. i am guided thoroughly with step by steps on how to provide details for him on my cases. i was able to get a work right when he had my “no working” visa conditions removed. i was also able to extend my bridging visa even after i submitted a form to the Federal Circuit Court. He is very helpful and responsive to all of my questions. i would highly recommend his service and his firm and i look forward to use his legal service again in the future!

  • I am so excited through a friend, me and my partner have chosen the RIGHT immigration company to work with our 820/801 visa. Especially Tsai, the experienced lawyer that by the look and the way he listened to our case and how he solved it, we can tell 100% he is the right person I can trust from the first meet. With his years of experience in migration and his best qualification, he finally guided us to have my partner visa granted after that short time. Less than 3 years of waiting Finally, to end my review, i just want to let you know that he is the right person to choose if you are going through Australian Visa. “Hit the like button/Plus a big smile if i could”
