Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: my son has lived in New Zealand for 5 years (I live the UK) and worked in various hospitality jobs, asst mgr level and is co-parenting with the raising of his son. He was sponsered to work, however, that has recently ended and he is facing having to leave as he doensn't have sufficient points to stay. He is 31 years old. Is there anything he can do? Many thanks Sandra
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about this?
Customer: He did speak get some preliminary advice but didn't really understand his options except for the fact that he has insufficient points.
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: He was seeking a managers position but with the new lockdown in Auckland, that isn't possible now.
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: My son is very depressed and worried which is why I'm trying to assist.

I think he will have time to find another sponsored job because work visas have been extended. I assume he is not living with the mother of his child as she could otherwise sponsor him as her partner. But he could try to apply for permanent residency based on his role as the other parent, although that may not be easy
