Applying work permit is free, you can fill the form in L4 Sydney Immigration Department Lee street. You can go to this website to complain the Immigration Agent
immi.gov.au/visas/migration-agents/reporting-problems.htm[/url]
and withdraw his representives.

You fire him, report him and do the application either by yourself or through another agent. He ripped you off once, dont be foolish enough to gift him your hard earned cash for his "services'.

Make a complaint about him. Is he a registered migration agent? Or is he a lawyer?

Just like tax agents need to be registered to do your taxes migration agents have to be registered.

Yes hes a lawyer. Because i signed the contract which means i accept all the terms n conditions how can I complain ?
And in the 10 pages contract also said if i terminate in the mid of the process, i still also have to pay the rest. I just read it thorougly last night.
One more question , cuz my partner was in MRT before he lodge this 820. So is the chance of winning very low ? The agent also said its better to prove we been in a relationship for atleast 2 yrs ( tho we just been for a yr) or hav a child

Post in Ask Mark with all the details and ask him what he thinks.

Lawyers are always expensive. My concern is the contact and they are legally binding. But ask Mark.

You probably need extra proof because of MRT because they might think you married for convenience. You don't know how DIBP will think.

Being a lawyer doesn't mean he's a registered migration agent. On his documents, does he provide a MARN #. If you look at the posts of Mark Northam you will see he has a MARN# in his signature. That means he's registered with the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority. As far as I know migration agents can charge what they'd like for fees, but they still have to comply with codes of conduct so if you terminated his services now I can't see how he could force you to pay the rest of his fee.

Honestly, you should terminate this contract immediately and request that he provides all your documents back to you (which he is obligated to do). Even switching to a completely new agent, you'd still end up spending far less than this guy would be charging you for the rest of your contract.

Wow as people has noted applying for work rights is free. If you did decide to get an agent to do it for you I'm sure they wouldn't even charge half what your lawyer is asking.
I'm about to do it myself so will update.
Why not do it yourself, just take your time read the forms correctly, research what others have done on here regarding compelling evidence and then lodge. Any questions post up here.
People on this board are very smart and someone can clear up an questions.

hi guys, i'm currently under BVA, lodged my application for 820 early of March this year. I am aware that the processing time takes 12-15 months. Just wondering if everything goes smoothly will 820 be granted not longer than 15 months after lodgement? Recently when I login to my ImmiAccount, I just found out that my current status of my application is "In Progress" and with the information "The Application for migration to Australia by a partner has been successfully submitted to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.". Nothing more..it's gonna be a long wait...
