The role of an immigration lawyer in Christchurch

Navigating the complex world of immigration can be overwhelming and intimidating, but rest assured that our specialist immigration lawyer in Christchurch will bring you more clarity. For a visa process to be successful, it’s crucial to have the right legal representation by your side. Here are some reasons why hiring a practising lawyer is essential:

  • Immigration laws are intricate and constantly changing. Having a knowledgeable legal representation ensures that you stay updated on any changes and understand how they affect your case.
  • Our experienced immigration law team can help you navigate through the paperwork, deadlines, and requirements involved in the visa application process. Our status with Immigration New Zealand will help your immigration matter achieve a more seamless process.
  • If an immigration officer raises complex legal issues about your case, such as a PPI (potentially prejudicial information) letter, we take the time to listen to your concerns, answer any questions you may have, develop a strategy that maximises your chances of success and put together a winning submission.

We are different to advisers and consultants. We are regulated under a different law, and as practising certificates enable us to practice in all areas of law, we are exempt from having to have an immigration adviser’s licence. We have a special privilege as we can witness and sign declarations.

Building a relationship with us often means building a lifelong relationship, as lawyers also provide a wide range of services in relation to a range of legal matters. For example, when our clients become residents in Christchurch, they often need help with buying their first home. Some may need help with their relationship property matters.

    He is really kind and gave us a lot of tips and unknown details during the process which was very useful. My Partnership visa got approved. Michael finally made it come true.
