We've exchanged hundreds of emails and they helped right throughout with anything, responds within 1-2 hours. Lawyers respond after 2-3 days at hundreds per hour. Only use a lawyer if its a total legal quagmire that no-one can figure out, ie, refugees, etc.

So many and I mean MANY MANY times - we say that an Australian based Registered Migration Agent is your best friend for a visa not a "lawyer".

Than you so much for the updating! I have been so anxious since the refusal notice. It has been a nightmare contemplating what we should do. Neither applying offshore nor hiring an AAT lawyer can guarantee us any certainty. Thinking about all the cost and the possibility that we'll be separated drives me to despair.

I am truly happy for you that things work out well. I don't dare to think about the positive outcome now.
