Partner visa in 2 months! We used Emerson Migration for our Partner Visa. We had a few consultations with other companies before meeting with Aishwarya. She was by far the most professional, confident, "peace giving" and competent lawyer we spoke to (and a great price!). We also worked closely with Amelia who was our case manager. She was absolutely brilliant - super helpful with our questions and concerns and made the process very smooth. We thought the process could take up to 12 + months but it only took 2 months! We are super grateful for Aishwayra, Amelia and the Emerson team. Much love and thanks!

My partner started the process, and Covid shook our world. Thanks to the amazing support from EML, and the meticulous attention to detail, my partner is now a permanent resident of Australia. No way would I ever consider trying to do this process myself - get a professional, and make sure they are up to the task. EML definitely meets the requirements!!

I cannot recommend Emerson enough! I first contacted them in April 2022, but due to some life events, I was only able to submit my partner visa application in February 2023. Throughout that time, and post-application, I always felt supported and cared for. All my questions and concerns were answered, and they always made sure I felt comfortable to ask anything. I truly could not have gone through this experience without them, especially with the numerous stressful life events I have gone through this past year. A special thank you to Aishwarya, Grace and Ben - I am so happy I got you all on my team.

I needed to get a visa for my partner to come to Australia. I had done an application myself and the visa was declined. After working with Emerson Law we got the visa approved in one week. Emerson Law were very helpful and professional.

Sarv, and Aishwarya helped me in every step of my situation guide and lead me through until the 25/05 /2023 yesterday I received and unexpected shocking news, that brings me tears of joy! my advice to anyone who is looking to migrate to Australia is please trust me and my words I count on Emerson migration because thankfully they help me walk me across the scariest bridge, I would not even be able to make it without them.

Hats off to Emerson Migration Law! I contacted the agency for assistance with my partner visa application. Throughout the process, I felt assured that I was in good hands with their expertise. There was never a point in the application where I felt stressed. Their regular communication through email and the ability to book consultations helped put me at ease. It's been an absolute pleasure being a client of Emerson, I'd recommend them to anyone! A special thank you to Aishwarya, Ben, Amelia, and Grace for being so helpful!

Permanent Residency

Securing Australian citizenship is a significant legal milestone that affords you the complete spectrum of privileges and duties inherent to being a member of the Australian community. Our team of seasoned citizenship solicitors is at your disposal to navigate the complexities of the application process with precision and expert counsel.


Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible to apply for Australian citizenship, you must:

  • Have lived lawfully in Australia for at least four years; and
  • Have lived in Australia for at least 12 months of said 4-year period as a Permanent Resident.

Note that if you have spent more than 12 months in the last four years outside Australia or three months in the last 12 months outside Australia, you will no longer meet the residence requirements for Citizenship.

For example, if you have spent several years in Australia on a student or 457 visa, this can be counted towards the 4-year residence requirement. Note that you do not automatically qualify for Australian citizenship in this way. You must make an application for citizenship.

Our Legal Services Include:

  • Assessing your eligibility based on residency and character criteria.
  • Gathering and organizing all required documentation.
  • Assisting with the completion and submission of the online citizenship application.
  • Preparing you for the citizenship examination.
  • Acting on your behalf throughout the evaluation process.

Upon successful approval, you will be endowed with all the rights of an Australian citizen.

Dual Citizenship

Australia recognises dual citizenship, permitting you to retain your original nationality while embracing Australian citizenship. However, it’s crucial to consult the citizenship laws of your home country, as policies differ greatly across nations.


Contact us now for a discussion surrounding your specific circumstances and to see whether you are eligible to apply for Citizenship.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the process take?

8-12 months on average from application to outcome.

How do periods of extended absence from Australia impact my eligibility for citizenship?

Some absences are acceptable if you can prove your permanent residence remains in Australia.

Do I need to renounce my existing citizenship?

Australia now allows dual citizenship. That means that an Australian citizen can take up citizenship of another country without losing their Australian citizenship. If, on the other hand, you become an Australian citizen, it is up to the law of your country of citizenship whether you can keep your existing citizenship.

Can my family also apply?

Eligible family members can generally apply together or join once the principal applicant is approved.

If any of these apply to you:

  • You want to resolve any uncertainties about your application and achieve peace of mind.
  • You want to clear all hidden costly errors and rest assured that requirements are correctly met.
  • You want to complete your registration easily, quickly, and stress-free.
  • You want to get expert guidance through the entire process, including private access to a network of complementary experts.
