• Federal Circuit Court

    If your application for merits review before the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) has not been successful, you may have a legal avenue for review of the AAT’s decision. The Federal Circuit Court (FCC) will consider whether the AAT has made a jurisdictional error (issue on the authority to decide a matter in the case) or has an error of law (law not correctly interpreted) in their decision. It is important to note that the FCC cannot reconsider the merits of your case.

    Strict time limits apply so you need to obtain legal advice as soon as possible to ensure you understand the next steps and your prospects of success in a judicial review application.

    Our lawyers are experts in guiding applicants through their legal rights, their prospects on review, and through the judicial system itself to ensure your judicial review experience is smooth and as stress-free as possible for you.


    Federal Court

    In certain cases, an applicant may not have an opportunity to appal to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) and will only have the right to appeal directly to the Federal Court. This happens when the Minister for Home Affairs personally makes a decision to either refuse or cancel a person’s visa in Australia under character provisions of the Migration Act. In these situations, it is of utmost importance to engage legal representation immediately, in order to have a plan and know your prospects moving forward.

    Further, if your case has been successful in the Federal Circuit Court (FCC), there may be a legal avenue available to you in the Federal Court. The Federal Court will consider whether there has been an error of law or jurisdiction made by the FCC.

    There is a strict time limit in applying for the Federal Court so you need to ensure that legal advice is sought quickly.
