There are a number of family visa options in Australia. Obvia Legal can assist and advise you with all of such visas.
The subclass 820/801 and subclass 309/100 Partner visas are for persons in a genuine marriage or de facto relationship with an Australian citizen or permanent resident (or eligible NZ citizen). Applicants within Australia are eligible for the subclass 820/801 while applicants outside Australia are eligible for the subclass 309/100 visa.
The subclass 300 Prospective Marriage (or Fiancé) visa are for persons outside Australia who are not yet married, but intend to marry an Australian citizen or permanent resident (or eligible NZ citizen). All applicants must be outside Australia when applied for and granted.
The subclass 101/802 Child visas are available for children under the age of 18 years, or dependent children under 23 if in full-time study, or older in some circumstances. Applicants within Australia are eligible for the subclass 802 while applicants outside Australia are eligible for the subclass 101 visa.
Parent visas are for parents of eligible Australian residents and New Zealand citizens. There are a range of options to be considered, depending on finances, time-frames, family-make up, the age of your parents, whether 50% or more of their children are Australian residents, etc. We can advise you on which option is best for your circumstances. The subclass 173/143 Contributory Parent visas are eligible for applicants outside Australia while applicants within Australia are eligible for the subclass 864/884 Contributory Parent visa.
The subclass 870 Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visa is intended to let an eligible parent live in Australia for 5-10 years. The visa application costs are considerably less, and the parent need not have 50% of their children in Australia as residents. However, this is a temporary visa, without an option to extend beyond 10 years. Nonetheless, if you feel this might be something you would consider, we will advise you accordingly.
Other family migration visas include Orphan Relative, Remaining Relative and the Carer visa.
