When a person is arrested or is under investigation for a criminal offence of some sort, it can be difficult to know what to do. The arresting officer may have told you that there is no hope of avoiding a conviction. The criminal charges you face may be so serious that you feel there's no way to avoid years or even life in prison. It is important to remember that you always have options. With a competent criminal defence lawyer at your side, you can fight your charges. At Charlton Lawyers we can fully investigate your case in order to determine what can be done to protect your rights. Whether this is your first arrest or you are facing serious charges, we can work to gather evidence and witness testimony on your behalf and develop a legal strategy that utilizes the legal system in your favor.

Our fee rates are very competitive. If you are interested in visiting or permanently migrating to Australia you will need to obtain the correct Australian visa. To obtain this you have to make an Australian Visa Application. Alternatively if you are already based in Australia with a soon to be expired visa and would like to extend your stay in the country then you will also need to complete another Australian Visa Application. Migration Review Tribunal Lawyers If your Australian visa application is refused then the Migration Review Tribunal may be your last opportunity to have the decision overturned and your visa granted. It is therefore very important to obtain proper legal advice from an Australian immigration lawyer / migration agent expert in running matters in the Migration Review Tribunal to ensure that the hearing will be conducted strategically to maximize the chances of a successful visa application outcome or for an Australian visa previously cancelled to be reinstated. Many people ask 'What's the benefit of choosing an immigration lawyer over a migration agent?'. The answer is a simple one. Your future in Australia depends on the quality of the migration advice and assistance you receive, so whether you require a spousal visa, student visa, business visa or working visa, you can be confident of the professional legal advice regarding Australian visa laws.
