No two cases are the same

We know that no individual is the same and that clients require solutions and strategies that are tailored to their particular circumstances. You will benefit from our experience in providing innovative solutions and strategies to meet your needs from the start to the end of the NZ immigration process. Our services are designed to ensure that all our clients are kept up to date with the progress of their application. We are focused on minimising delays and obtaining the best result for your case.

Are you doing your own case?

Rules around health, character, identity and other aspects are being tightened. Immigration policies change constantly. A simple straightforward case can become difficult through even the smallest changes of policy. If you are doing your own case and find yourself in this situation, you may have only have a short period to respond. We can help avoid this situation through our prior knowledge of other similar cases and strong working relationship with Immigration New Zealand but if problems do still happen we can put in a quick and competent response.

Through our regular in house training and mentoring processes our team is kept constantly up to date. We use state of the art practice management systems to manage cases and watch deadlines.

“If you are doing battle with the Immigration authorities, I recommend without reservation that you place the matter in the very capable hands of Pacific Legal to whom I owe a debt of thanks for their efficiency and kindness. After struggling to confirm my immigration status here in New Zealand for a period of some 2½ years, and achieving nothing other than extreme frustration, I handed the matter over to Richard Small and his team at Pacific Legal. Almost immediately, positive progress was made, and now some 10 months after I can report with delight that the matter of Permanent Residency is successfully resolved.”
