Firstly, the process involved in the preparation and submission of temporary and permanent residency applications is by no means simple and can often be beyond the knowledge of an individual. At the very least, one needs a basic understanding of how to interpret legislation in order to progress past the first stage of the process – identifying the correct category under which to apply as well as fully understanding the requirements. Any person that has attempted to progress through these processes by themselves will testify to the extreme difficulty and frustration. Also, many applications that have been handled personally by clients have been rejected due to the above, even though the individuals fully qualified for whichever application submitted.

Secondly, with regards to appeals, it becomes even more complex where one would have to argue not only on a factual basis but also on a legal basis for the appeals to be successful.

Lastly, the deregistration of attorneys, agents and consultants has resulted in an unregulated industry of individuals assisting clients with immigration processes when they have little knowledge or experience in dealing with Immigration matters. These agents operate charging exorbitant amounts of money but produce no results. Attorneys have also joined in the mix, with very junior attorneys now claiming to have immigration knowledge and experience that they simply do not have. If one chooses to engage the services of individuals that have little or no experience in immigration, it will be highly detrimental to any application or appeal outcome.

So why use us? We have the experience, the knowledge and the dedication to deliver a positive outcome for you.

It was such a relief to have Richard dealing with my immigration to South Africa! He communicated clearly throughout the process and was easily approachable when I had questions. I have already recommended Richard on to others who are working on immigrating to South Africa, and will continue to do so! He is highly capable and clearly does his job to the best of his ability.

Excellent, fast, efficient. Definitely highly recommended. I had to renew my little sister's study permit for her matric. Richard guided me through the whole process, even made a booking for us for the collection.

After numerous attempts and failures to get a trustworthy and understanding immigration lawyer, we eventually came across Richard. The best contact we could possibly receive. Richard has been absolutely amazing throughout this stressful and ongoing process. Not only offering a service but being a constant support to myself and my fiancé. Great service, great communication and full commitment towards what he does. We would 100% recommend his services.
