Some of the frequently asked questions about Immigration Lawyer NZ.

People also ask

An immigration lawyer in New Zealand provides expert guidance through the complex immigration process, helping you understand your options and determining the best path forward based on your specific situation.

They prepare and organise your application by offering tailored advice and providing checklists, forms, and samples to simplify the process.

Once your application is ready, they submit it to Immigration New Zealand, manage all subsequent communications, and address any issues that arise.

This comprehensive support allows you to focus on your life while ensuring that your immigration matters are progressing smoothly and efficiently.

The cost of hiring an immigration lawyer varies based on several factors.

Urgency can affect costs, especially in situations where immediate action is required, such as responding to Immigration New Zealand’s concerns about a potential decline within a tight deadline.

The complexity of your case also plays a significant role; more intricate cases involving numerous issues or disputes will generally require more resources and time.

Additionally, the experience and expertise of the lawyer can influence the cost, as more seasoned lawyers might provide more effective and connected services.

Billing methods differ among practices; while some charge by the hour, others, like our firm, offer a fixed fee to provide clarity and peace of mind about your legal expenses from the start.

Most people opt for an immigration lawyer to navigate the complexities of immigration law and to adeptly handle any arising difficulties.

When choosing an immigration lawyer, it's crucial to consider their experience and expertise in the field, ensuring they are well-versed in handling situations similar to yours.

Additionally, the quality of service delivery, including effective communication and timely updates, is essential.

Transparent cost structuring is also important, as it helps avoid any unexpected expenses.

Reviewing client testimonials and independent reviews can provide insights into the lawyer's reliability and the quality of service you can expect.

Our principal immigration lawyer, with over 18 years of experience, is renowned for his professional and approachable manner in assisting clients, as evidenced by more than 300 positive Google reviews.

His fees are competitive and designed to provide value while addressing your immigration needs effectively.

Immigration lawyers in New Zealand are required to complete a law degree that spans four years and an additional 14-weeks intensive professional training in law, ensuring they are thoroughly versed in the legal framework. Their comprehensive legal training allows them to effectively handle complex cases when the need arises. In addition, they can certify documents, witness statutory declarations, and represent clients in court. Before starting their own practice, they must also gain at least three years of full-time experience as a lawyer.

In contrast, immigration advisors are required to complete a one-year online programme and obtain a provisional licence to start their consulting business. While they can assist with visa applications and provide immigration advice, their scope can be limited compared to lawyers, particularly in complex legal issues and representation in court settings.

Remember, New Zealand immigration laws and policies change constantly, without warning.
