Defacto VISA Application

“I recently hired Caroline Chung & Associates to help me apply for a Defacto VISA with my same sex partner.

Filling in all that paperwork was initially a very complicated and overwhelming process but as soon as Caroline came on board, I felt like a great weight had been taken off my shoulders.

She supported my partner and I through every step of the way. I was incredibly impressed with her knowledge and empathy for my situation.

I applied for a Defacto VISA but due to the detailed information we gave, was actually awarded Permanent Residency. I was thrilled to hear this news.

Caroline made the whole process seem easy and I am now enjoying my new life in Sydney and it’s all thanks to Caroline.” Sharon, Newtown

Family Law and Child Custody
“My six year old’s life has been under the umbrella of a very complicated child custody and family law matter for the whole of her very short life. Caroline  Chung has been there all the way with me, fighting tooth and nail, doing the best for me and my child. My time spent with Caroline, with her support, has made me feel virtually related to her. I have been so fortunate, as I could not have asked for a better person to be at my side.

Originally, before Caroline, I had tried other lawyers, but with no success – the major difference between Caroline and other lawyers, is that she believes in me. She’s always someone who does the best for me and is completely focused on my needs. Other lawyers have had a business approach and are only there to get paid. This strategy with family law matters doesn’t work…. it just does more damage while they drag out the matter.

Caroline’s actions show me that she understands what I need and what needs to be done. She is committed to me as a person, at any hour of the day, as well as ensuring that I get the best legal outcome in the most time effective way.”  SJ, Drummoyne

Property – Commercial Asset
“I recently engaged Caroline Chung & Associates to sell my commercial property.

Part of the process involved reviewing specific legislation that impacted the amount of stamp duty to be paid on the property. The investigation revealed deficiencies within the legislation and it was only Caroline’s tenacity that provided an outcome that reflected the true value of the asset.

Because of her attention to detail and her tremendous capacity to apply government legislation correctly and get all parties on board, Caroline created a pathway to deliver a successful and timely result.”  JB, Waverton

Permanent Residence – Spouse Visa with Domestic Violence
“Dear Sir/Madam

I would like to express many thanks to Caroline’s help. She acted for me in complicated visa application and She became a friend and gave me a comfort and encouragement while I was under the awkward circumstances and the hardship that initially resulted from the ultimate Separation.

Many many thanks to her.

Spouse Visa
“I met Caroline in 2010 while looking for a lawyer to help me getting my Australian permanent residency. I met other lawyers before her but none of them gained my trust. From the first time I met Caroline Chung I immediately understood that she was the right lawyer for me: she won my trust with her confidence and her patience.

Caroline went the extra mile in helping me with my spouse visa which at the time was seriously compromised due to my partner and I living separate for a few months. I didn’t have any hope left at the time and I was ready to leave the country. Caroline worked hard and on my request, involved me in each step of the way, always explaining to  me with extreme patience what was happening. After months of hard work she managed to get my Permanent Residency approved!

I truly admire Caroline not only as a professional lawyer but also as a person. The support I received from her went far beyond any expectation!

Nowadays I live happily in Sydney with my partner thanks to Caroline. I would not think twice to engage her again should I need assistance and I would highly recommend Caroline to anyone.”   DC, Rozelle
