    Are migration agents really helpful

    Hi guys....just popping on to say ...if anyone feels it was my intention to scaremonger-then my apologies but it was not. And also I don't find any if my advice given in the best of intention preposterous in any way. Both my consultants wrote my letters supporting my medical history which were in no way helpful and I certainly do believe they could have lost me a chance of a visa. As -imo - i believe- could not having the correct information and advice on specific issues involved, and yes there was something in my case which had I failed to mention could have led to a three year ban. There are quite a few times on forums when I have been given preposterous and straight forward wrong advice. That is why I chose to get an agent....that and the fact I do not know all the ins and outs of it all and I myself have been wrong before many times. These are my views only, not everyone's and I appreciate that and respect that, but I stand by what I say regarding my own process. Good luck to the op though it's stressful, exciting and worth it x

    No not would- but could. There are a few silly mistakes I could have made up to now that could potentially lead to me being refused such as over claiming experience, incorrectly formatted medical letters which were not worded correctly, also me not knowing that if I had not disclosed other certain things could have lead to refusal and three year bans etc. I'm sure applications can and have been done many many times successfully without an agent...but just for us personally, it was not worth the risk of going alone.

    I looked at it like this: how would I feel if I made a mistake that cost me thousands of pounds I'd taken years to find, hours and hours of overtime, university work, kids futures planned, a life put on hold etc....how would I feel if my last ten or so years of dreaming about a all the exciting things we have to look forward to were scuppered by one stupid , avoidable mistake? That's how valuable a good migration agent is. It's like an insurance policy on your effort to achieving long planned dreams.
