In fact, the lawyer may take a big retainer from you and then advise you that nothing can be done (I've never heard of ANY so called Immigration Lawyer who was ever successful against ICA as ICA uses it's own rules which are not touchable by normal law. Like IRAS, ICA is a law unto itself.

NB: I used a lawyer to apply for PR way, way back in 1988. It was rejected. I appealed through the same lawyer and it was also rejected. Later I applied on my own (same circumstances) and was approved. Many years later (around 6 years ago, I met the immigration officer who gave me my PR back in the mid 90's. He is the one who told me, himself, that when ever an applicant tries to use a legal representative to apply, it's almost an automatic no. So, as I said, help yourself and good luck.

There's nothing to advise! You're just pissing daddy's money down the lawyers toilet. Privy council appeal? No. Queens Counsel? No. Appeal to the president? Yeah good luck with that. Appeal to your MP? Hah.

You're in Singapore man! There is no 'legal' avenue open to you!

COnsidering the growth expected in VN in the next decade or so I know where I'd rather be....
Now I'm called PNGMK

Try test the waters... tell your significant other than we will not be moving to Singapore for the next 10 years (get married in Vietnam in 1 year + 3 years together+ 1 year to have a kid + raise kid till 5 years old).

See how the story swings then. If she has no issues and is still with you a year or two later then you probably got yourself a keeper...
