Deportation Appeals and Reviews Require a Specialist Deportation Lawyer

The office of Rupert Ward provides specialist legal support with deportation cases and all aspects of immigration law.

If are facing deportation from New Zealand, Rupert Ward can advise you on your options for appeal and assist you in throughout the appeals process. You have the right to appeal to the Immigration and Protection Tribunal against the requirement to leave New Zealand. You have a limited time in which to make your appeal so it is important to engage a qualified immigration lawyer who specialises in deportation appeals as soon as possible. The amount of time you have to make your appeal depends on the grounds for deportation. If you are being deported for being in New Zealand illegally (e.g. expired visa), you have six weeks from when your unlawful status begins to appeal to the Tribunal. If you appeal within the six weeks time period, you cannot be deported until the appeal process has completed and you have lost the appeal. If you hold a current New Zealand visa and have been issued a ‘deportation liability notice‘ by Immigration New Zealand, you have two weeks to challenge your deportation by giving Immigration New Zealand a reason why you shouldn’t be deported. You also have the right to challenge your deportation by appealing to the Immigration and Protection Tribunal, either on the grounds that Immigration New Zealand are wrong or on the grounds that there are exceptional humanitarian circumstances in your case.
