Family migration law

You live within an international family in the Netherlands. In that case, you will have to deal with family migration law, which can sometimes be quite complicated. Mynta Law is well aware of all the various regulations and developments in this field. Our expertise can make a real difference for countless international families who are currently resident in the Netherlands. We provide objective, incisive and expert advice, process residence applications efficiently and carefully, and assist in numerous other immigration law cases.

Applications for residence permits

Applying for a residence permit almost always causes a certain amount of stress and, unfortunately, we at Mynta Law cannot eliminate all that stress. However, by providing clear information, we can reduce it to a minimum for you. Each year, we help dozens of international families to prepare their residency applications. Initially, we identify all the possibilities in an inventive, solution-oriented but realistic manner. Having done this, we then compile the application and, naturally, manage it.

Modification of residence permits after termination of relationship

Breaking off a relationship is always a drastic step, but when a right of residence also depends on this relationship, it does not make the decision any easier, especially if the termination of the relationship may lead to the withdrawal of the right of residence. Mynta Law helps you steer through these changes in circumstances by ensuring that any modifications to residence permits are completed on time. We identify possible alternatives and advise on any conditions that may apply. We are inventive, knowledgeable about the entirety of migration law, and therefore able to find solutions that other companies may not have found. Naturally, we also manage any necessary applications.

Structure of the right of residence and "residence gaps”

The longer you live in the Netherlands with a residence permit, the stronger your position becomes and the greater your protection. However, interruptions in your stay, often also referred to as 'residence gaps', will negate your residence structure, and you will therefore want to avoid them. Mynta Law can help you in this area; as specialists, we can – in time - act for you if a gap threatens to occur, taking any appropriate measures. We will ensure that a new residence application is submitted on time and that your lawful residence in the Netherlands is not interrupted.

Assistance with the withdrawal of (or intention to withdraw) residence permits

The IND regularly checks to ensure that all conditions of a residence permit are still being met. Should this no longer be the case, the IND may withdraw a residence permit. Mynta Law has extensive experience in successfully challenging such revocation decisions. If you are confronted with the revocation of your residence permit, be assured that Mynta Law is able to effectively assist you.

Objection and (higher) Appeals

A significant number of the changes to migration law originate in the courtroom. Effective litigation requires a detailed knowledge of the law, together with considerable resourcefulness and persuasiveness. Mynta Law has all these qualities and extensive litigation experience before the Dutch Immigration Justice, and even the Court of Justice of the European Union.

Fixed rates, so no financial surprises

Whenever possible, Mynta Law applies fixed rates to the handling of a specific case. Our rates are in line with the current market level. Therefore, when engaging Mynta Law, you know in advance what your costs will be.
