To any lawyers and migration agents, client’s trust is the most valuable reward.

 

Dr Chao Liu and Mrs Rongjie (Jessie) Ding engaged Kris back in 2014.

 

The client-lawyer relationship started with Jessie’s student visa application as a dependent on Dr Chao’s, as her 457 visa application was refused. She had lodged a review application at AAT (then MRT). Dr Chao and Mrs Jessie engaged Kris as they were incorrectly advised about the student visa by another migration agent.

 

With their trust, Kris was able to assist Jessie to obtain a student visa within 1 month – from the first initial phone call.

 

2 years later, Dr Liu had completed his PhD, and have consulted with Kris about applying for both 485 graduate visa and QLD 190 visa. Whilst 485 visa was a straightforward application; 190 visa had one hurdle about whether PhD research period can be considered as part of an ‘employment’ period, which would determine migration points.

 

Kris was able to successfully argue and obtain the required migration points by convincing the authorities that his research period should be counted as employment period and hence Dr Chao & Mrs Jessie successfully obtained their permanent residency.

 

Why are they so memorable?

Their trust in Kris was absolute, even though they have never met in person (until this video was filmed), and even though they were in a different city and state. To any lawyers and migration agents, client’s trust is the most valuable reward.

 

Dr Chao and Mrs Jessie, we wish you all the best and we thank you for entrusting us with your application.
