Immigration / Crime

Immigration and the criminal law intersect in several ways.  We have experience in defending people charged with offending against the Immigration Act 2009 and related legislation.  Additionally, we assist persons who have pleaded guilty and where a conviction would have an adverse impact their immigration status, assisting them in obtaining discharges without convictions.

When the immigration status of you – and potentially your family – is on the line, it is imperative that you seek experienced legal advice to ensure that you have the best representation possible.

I received a summons to the Auckland District Court regarding providing misleading information to Immigration New Zealand. I was stressed about the impact it would have on my employment and immigration status. John took me through the process and dealt with Immigration NZ and the court. In the end he persuaded the Judge to just give me a fine which I paid on the day and now the matter is finished.

I am very grateful for acquiring John Munro services for my case. He has a wonderful team.
