Character Provisions

Character Provisions


People must advise DIBP of all criminal convictions they have had throughout their entire life and provide appropriate Police clearances from each country they have resided in for 12 months or longer in the last 10 years.

William has had extensive experience and success in undertaking applications both applying for a visa when substantial criminal convictions have been present for trying to import drugs/narcotics into home country, physical assault.

William has been also able to prevent the cancellation of a visa, where applicants have been present in Australia and then committed offences such as grievous bodily harm in one case and rape and armed robbery together in another case.

William is a passionate believer, the best place to win difficult cases is before the delegate at DIBP, rather than at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (β€œAAT”), or in the Federal Court. William does appear for all applicants, no matter what they were convicted of. See the matter of Chadwick and Minister for Immigration and Citizenship [2013] AATA 312 (17 May 2013).
