I agree. It also shows the pitfalls of these forums, as people often do not fully disclose their issues. Therefore advice given, may be given on the basis of incomplete and incorrect information. In previous posts the OP didn’t mention the character issues. I don’t pass judgement. I just try and point people in the right direction. In this case, the involvement of a good lawyer is recommended , as we are dealing with both criminal and migration law. If the OP had mentioned this issue in his original post, I would have said then, that with relationship breakdowns, where an Australian Citizen child is involved, the overwhelming concern is for the welfare of the child and that domestic violence is taken very seriously. Despite there being a child from the relationship, the relationship must have been genuine in the first place and the visa applicant still has to meet health and character criteria.
