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.
