Student Visa Obtained After Client's Good Character Questioned

Solicitor and Migration Agent Deike Kemper represented a 21-year-old male in his matter with the Department of Home Affairs.

A further student visa application had been made as our client’s studies were taking longer than anticipated. However, during an interview with the Department, disclosures were made, which caused the Department to query our client’s honesty and good character.

It was at this stage that Ms Kemper was engaged to liaise with the Department to ensure it was aware of all the circumstances and understood all of the disclosures our client had made. Ultimately, Ms Kemper was able to satisfy the Department, through written submissions, that our client was not of bad character and his student visa was granted.

This case illustrates the importance of quality representation and the value of a solicitor and Migration Agent to assist in any visa application.

Partner Visa Granted Following Separation Due to Family Violence

Solicitor and Migration Agent Deike Kemper represented a 32-year-old female in her matter with the Department of Home Affairs.

The case involved a relationship breakdown between our client and her partner, who was sponsoring her for permanent residency by way of a Partner Visa application. The Partner Visa had not yet been approved when the parties separated and the sponsor advised the Department of the separation.

Separating from your sponsor usually means the cancellation of any Bridging Visa and requires the applicant to leave Australia. However, because the separation occurred largely due to family violence being perpetrated by the sponsor against our client, we made a special application to the Department to allow her to remain in the country. We also assisted our client in successfully obtaining an Intervention Order from the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court against her ex-partner.

After we made detailed and lengthy submissions to the Department of Home Affairs, our client was ultimately granted permanent residency.

This case illustrates the importance of quality representation and the value of a solicitor like Deike Kemper being engaged from the early stages to ensure that all necessary steps are taken promptly and with due care.

Resolution of Four-Year Property Dispute on the Steps of Court

Our solicitor Ms Kemper represented a 59-year-old male at the Federal Circuit Court in Melbourne in May 2018 in relation to a property settlement with his ex-wife.

The client had been involved in a lengthy legal battle for the past four years and had invested in excess of $65,000 in legal fees, prior to seeing Ms Kemper.

Ms Kemper became involved four months prior to the date that the matter was listed for Final Hearing and managed to settle the matter shortly before the hearing was due to commence. This saved our client both the stress and the expense of going through a family law trial.

This case illustrates the importance of quality representation and the value of a solicitor like Deike Kemper who, regardless of at what stage she becomes involved in a matter, will fight to achieve the best possible outcome.

Repeat Offender Avoids Jail for Driving Offences

Our solicitor Ms Deike Kemper represented a 31-year-old male at the Ringwood Magistrates’ Court in May 2018 in relation to 15 charges of driving whilst disqualified, drug driving and other driving offences.

The case involved various offences of driving whilst under the influence of illicit substances, which on one occasion even resulted in an accident involving others. Other offences related to driving whilst disqualified, driving without an alcohol interlock, and refusing to provide a sample for testing.

The maximum penalty for these offences included disqualification from driving for four years. Four of the charges against the client could cumulatively have attracted a term of imprisonment of two years.

The matter was aggravated by the client having been found guilty of charges of the same nature only 12 months earlier.

Following negotiations with prosecution a number of serious charges were withdrawn, before a plea of guilty was entered to a remaining 10 charges.

Our representation resulted in the Court sentencing the client to a lengthy Community Corrections Order, involving community work, treatment and supervision conditions. The Magistrate indicated that but for the submissions made by Ms Kemper on her client’s behalf, the court would have imposed a term of imprisonment.

This case demonstrates the importance of quality representation and the value of a solicitor like Deike Kemper, who will ensure that the court is aware of all mitigating circumstances relating to the offender and the offending.

Withdrawal of Unlawful Assault Charge

Our solicitor Ms Deike Kemper represented a 46-year-old female at the Ringwood Magistrates’ Court in April 2018 in relation to a charge of unlawful assault.

The case involved a disagreement between our client and the daughter of an acquaintance. The allegation was that our client had violently assaulted the complainant, through her car window, causing bruising and cuts.

Given the client’s criminal history, she was at risk of being sentenced to imprisonment.

Despite negotiations with prosecution and requests for further witness statements to be obtained, the charge was not withdrawn and the matter proceeded to first mention. On the day of court, Ms Kemper had further discussions with prosecution and the charge was withdrawn.

This result was achieved through determination and persistence, whilst maintaining an appropriate professional relationship with prosecution. The case illustrates the importance of quality representation and the value of a solicitor like Dieke Kemper who will ensure the prosecution case against you is fully tested and work hard to get you the best possible outcome.

I cannot recommend the girls more highly.

I have dealt with a few lawyers in the past, but they always managed to have me walk out of their office feeling more negative than positive, wondering if you made the right decision in choosing the one you did, but with Go To Court Lawyers, I walked away feeling a winner right from the start. They were extremely caring toward my problem, and they dealt with it as quickly and as professionally as possible, with fantastic results. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

After 5 years of constant dispute we contacted Go To Court Lawyers and after our first meeting we left feeling completely relieved. Our lawyer took care of all of the correspondents, completely relieving us of any stress associated with the case and we trusted him to take care of us and he did not disappoint. He managed to get our case settled out of court and we have returned to our normal lives after 5 years. My only regret is that I didn't contact them sooner.
