You can apply for a residency visa based on your relationship to a New Zealand citizen. This will be delayed because the borders are closed due to Covid, so this may not be possible until some time next year. Otherwise you need to have a good health record, and clear police record. You can apply to the New Zealand High Commission in Canada, or apply online. People do not usually use lawyers to apply. but from your description you should be able to get a visa. But until the borders open you will need to wait

Customer
thank you for your response, we are currently applying for a CPVV to come to Nz, we don't want to wait till next year as my partner is still in Nz,I am concerned about our time apart and if that will affect my application for a resident visa
Customer
my daughter has a Nz passport so I am applying for a CPVV stating that I am a parent and the legal guardian for a Nz child, if I am accepted then I will be able to enter Nz on the visitor visa, but I wish to not leave Nz and I am wondering what my options are since they are not processing any other visas

You can apply but there are no places in managed isolation quarantine unless you get one in a ballot. It is not really possible to get here until next year
