Why lodging your own application can =
$$DOLLARS$$ DANGER & DISASTER!!
Information which is freely available on the Internet, including popular "immigration forums" etc, is frequently out of date, inaccurate, incomplete in its detail and therefore potentially misleading.
The Department of Home affairs (DOHA) website actively encourages you to lodge your own application, because it knows that it will receive your NON-REFUNDABLE visa application fee, regardless of the quality of your application, and regardless of whether or not it has any chance of success.

It is therefore obvious, and I strongly advise that you should treat this freely available information with extreme caution, and resist the temptation of lodging your own application, (including applications for skill assessment). I also advise that you ignore advice provided by well-meaning friends and relatives, who do not have the qualifications and experience to give such advice.
All application fees paid to these Authorities are non-refundable, and they have no legal liability whatsoever for the information provided. As an Australian Registered Migration Agent, Graham Paddington does have legal obligation and liability for the information and advice he provides.
Therefore, it is not worth risking a visa rejection because of an application that has been prepared and lodged by someone who does not have the necessary, skills, qualifications and knowledge. The fees that you pay to a professional and appropriately experienced Australian migration agent, (registered with the OMARA) are an investment, not a waste of money.
