Default Immigration advisor recommendations

Hi all,

Can anyone recommend any immigration advisors please. We are in the UK and possibly have a couple of options open to us but need some advice to help us on our way. With the new points changes recently we are a bit unsure of which way to go.

Thanks :-)

I have one or two recommendations but both would be NZ based.

If you can let us have a few details then maybe we can help a little before you spend your money.

Occupations
Education
Work exp
Age

all that sort of thing.

We are currently using migration associates they are based in NZ and in the UK. They have been great so far. We thought about not using someone but we didn't really have a clue where to start with the process really.

Shame you didn't find us sooner as we could have totally helped with that.

As I wrote above.

Some general details can help us help you to get started. Also lets you know what your options might be.

If you really feel you cannot cope with the form filling & need a consultant for that then it is best to go for one that has been tried and tested, who has a good rep . Who is NZ dedicated only and who is registered.

At the end of the day the applicant will still have to do the legwork and paperwork.

In cases of concerns over the character or medical standards , then yes, a quality immy lawyer can certainly help with that.

most of us haven't used one as BEV says lots of knowledgeable people gone various routes on here and you really are just paying for a paper shuffler unless your application is going to be complicated.

Also our experience was that agent didn't know half of what they needed to know and a quick call to Immigration direct sorted it out.
Know people who have used agents and they mucked up the application.

I feel the requirement to have a direct link to your own Case Officer is a must and not being told things second hand.

Its all fairly straight forward as long as you read the guides along with the forms
