Currently on my second working holiday visa and wanting to apply for permanent residency. We have spoken to an immigration lawyer but they quoted us a much larger amount than anticipated, however did get two options for visas - the 189 Skilled visa and doing a visa through my partner who is Australian.
Just wondering if anyone has any advice on either of these, mainly whether they think they requires assistance from an immigration lawyer or if it’s possible to just apply myself and have it accepted.
If so wanting recommendations of any good/not dodgy immigration lawyers that don’t charge huge amounts (over $3000) on top of the already steep visa application fees.
I am absolutely happy. Finally after 8 years. All glory to God who is able to answer all prayers.
