It was suggested to me via this forum that most migration agents will give you an initial 30 minutes of their time free, to assess whether or not you would qualify in any category for a move to Aus.
Having contacted one guy on here he (twice) told me to go to his website and "pay the fee" to fill in his online form before he would even talk to me.
I have no problem with that, I'm pretty easy going and folks can run their business any way they choose. However - as I tried to explain - my case isn't straight forward (lots of technicalities involving which profession I'd qualify under which can't be ascertained simply by filling in a form).
Can anybody recommend someone who would be willing to offer some initial advice without obligation?
