The Australian Migration landscape is complex and frequently changing. This poses many challenges for people who want to make a visa application to work, study or live in Australia.

Migration legislation is regularly reviewed and updated by Parliament. These changes affect visa holders already in Australia and those preparing to make an application.

I highly recommend Traci Chen of this company. She is very professional, patient and reliable.In the process of our visa application, I was always able to fully communicate my ideas with her, so that she could give me professional advice. Our family is very grateful to Traci.
Migration Law client
If you are like myself and find the whole Immigration process quite daunting, I could not recommend Traci Chen at Coulter Roache enough. She took all my stress and worry into her own hands and I didn't have to lift a finger throughout my whole TR process. (Which only took 14 months). Traci dealt with absolutely everything for me. She showed a level of care that you would not get from most other big firms and her knowledge put me at ease when I had many questions.

I will definitely be recommending C&R to friends and be using them in future for all legal services.
