Default New Zealand deported after 25 years - Help!

I am helping a 48yo New Zealand male who never got round to becoming an Australian citizen despite living here for more than 25 years. He has a single conviction for manufacturing drugs of 7 years and upon his release is to be deported. He[LIST][*]resided in Australia almost continuously for more than 25 years[*]was in a de facto relationship with an Australian citizen and has two adult children[*]when sentenced to seven years no mention of deportation as a punishment was mentioned by the judge[*]he entered Australia legally and at all times was a legal resident[*]he also served in the Australian Army Reserve and presumably made some sort of pledge to Australia at that time.
He has no connections to Australia so he is distressed about having to leave. Irrespective of the prison term I think he should be allowed to stay.
Can someone suggest some assistance?
Thanks, Paul

Hi Paul

Welcome to the forum.

I would suggest this gentleman needs to obtain assistance from a lawyer who specialises in cases like this. Either contact your local law society for a referral or perhaps one of the free community based legal aid associations.

Kind regards
