5. What happens if I arrive late?


  • If you are less than 10 minutes late for an appointment, we will attempt to extend the appointment, if our scheduling permits, to give you the complete time you have booked.
  • If you are more than 10 minutes late for an appointment, we will need to complete the booking on time and charge the booked rate. At our discretion, we may extend future appointments to regain the lost time.

Keeping to our scheduled times is the only way we can continue to offer our quality service on a fair basis to all clients.

6. Can I cancel my consultation?


We ask that you give us at least 48 hours notice to cancel or reschedule an appointment in order to give other clients the opportunity to fill sought-after appointment times. We strongly encourage providing as much notice as possible to avoid inconveniencing other clients and our staff.

Due to the high demand for appointments, the following conditions apply. If you cancel an appointment and provide less than 48 hours notice or you do not attend:

  • 50% refund of your consultation fees if you give us more than 24 hour notice.
  • No refund of your consultation fees if you cancel less than 24 hours, or do not attend.
7. What methods of consultation is available?


You can choose whether you would like to have your consultation in Person, Telephone or Video Conference.

8. What are our service fees?


Our fees are charged per case by case, depending on your circumstances and the visa that you wish to apply for. The level of work required for the different visa application is solely based on your personal circumstances and the visa application requirements.


For example, if you are intending on applying for a Partner visa and you have been married for over 2 years and have a substantial amount of evidence to prove your relationship, our fees will most likely be lower compared to couples who had just been together for 12 months.

9. Can I pay Crux Migration fee through instalments?


Yes, you can pay our professional legal fee in two instalments.

First Instalment: we will invoice you 50% of our professional legal fee to start preparing your application for lodgement. We will be working closely with you and your partner, employer or any other third party involved.

Second Instalment: The second instalment will consist of the outstanding balance, which is the other 50% of our professional legal fee and all fees involved in the application. This outstanding balance is required to lodge your application.

10. Are there additional costs down the line?


The Professional Legal Fee quoted for your case will be fixed with no hidden costs. The fee will cover all legal work required for your visa application and we will represent you until a decision is made on your application.


However, additional charges may occur if additional work is required due to certain circumstances that were not disclosed to us at the initial consultation. For example, if you have a criminal record and did not let us know at our initial consultation and the department requests for further information regarding this, additional fees may apply for any additional work required.
