Immigration and citizenship statues are complex and dynamic functions of law that affect the lives of people in very real ways. A keen understanding of the Acts, Regulations, Amendments and immigration jurisprudence regulating these processes is crucial to ensure not only favourable and/or legally sound outcomes, but perhaps more importantly, that your rights as foreigners and persons in South Africa are protected.

“Without the help from De Saude Darbandi Attorneys, I don’t think I would be legally able to stay with my wife in South Africa. They are a great group that has your best interest at the top priority”

“I don’t think you find a more professional, passionate and empathetic team. My previous attorney said the only way forward is High Court at R100k, luckily I became a part of De Saude Darbandi Attorneys. Within 24 hours they got my case reopened and 1 week later got my case dismissed in court! Thank you very much for your amazing support and service!”
“It is with great JOY and celebration that I read the judgement against Dept of Home Affairs for their disgraceful behaviour and incompetence. Thank you for persevering to make life possible for foreigners in this country. Thank you, it would have been so easy to just give up I am sure. That is flipping brilliant. CONGRATULATIONS, I want to have a drink with you but it’s a bit difficult from Tzaneen.”
“Stefanie held my hand over the course of six years, from when I first applied for permanent residency to when I finally obtained citizenship. I could not have have made it that far had it not been for her deep knowledge of the law and understanding of the human emotions behind immigration.”
“Contacting you was the best decision we ever made. You gave our case special attention […], you fought it with passion. I can proudly refer your firm and services […] because first of all and above all you care!”
“Thank you (& the DSDA team) immensely for playing a critical part in instigating the best new year gift I could ever have wished for – SA Permanent Residency! Thanks to you and your team for the professionalism, courtesy and efficiency with which my application was handled.”
