This podcast will give you an understanding of mandatory visa cancellations under the Migration Act and how these powers can impact your clients.  

Presented by Duy Pham and Stephanie Blaker, migration lawyers in the Government Law team at Legal Aid Sydney.

This podcast explains what happens to visa holders post-sentencing, focusing on the mandatory cancellation provisions in s501(3A) of the Migration Act, and what to keep in mind when advising clients at all stages of the criminal proceedings, including when entering a plea and how this could affect the sentencing outcome.
