Marino Law | Gold Coast Law Firm

Migration & immigration law.

At Marino Law, our team of migration and immigration experts understand the complexity of immigrating to Australia. We will work closely with you by developing a detailed ‘roadmap’ or pathway to achieving your permanent residency, Australian citizenship or whatever your immigration goals may entail.

We understand that immigrating to Australia can be stressful and that it can be extremely challenging to navigate through the complex Australian immigration and visa application system in the absence of trusted advisors.

It is essential to get the visa application process right from the very beginning and it is imperative you obtain legal advice before making what are often considerable investments to secure your future in Australia. In Australia, only Registered Migration Agents can provide immigration assistance. At Marino Law, you can rest assured that you are always receiving the most accurate and timely advice from our expert team, knowing that we are not only Registered Migration Agents but also lawyers admitted to the Supreme Court of Queensland with years of experience assisting clients by securing their long term futures in Australia.

Our team provides practical and clear advice from the commencement of the visa application process to save you the unnecessary expense

and delay of having to either appeal a visa refusal or re-lodge an application, whether overseas or onshore in Australia.

Our team of expert immigration lawyers have experience in all facets of migration law, specialising in:

  • Temporary & Permanent Work Visas/Employer Sponsored Migration;
  • Family & Partner/Spouse/De Facto Visas;
  • Investor & Business Visas;
  • Skilled Visas;
