Hello,

So, I currently live at home, but I am of age. I do not want my family to know I am applying for a prospective marriage visa (abusive/controlling environment). Do I have to include them in my application? I'd really rather not.

Yes you must include them, though it is unlikely they will ever be contacted, so they won't necessarily know of your intentions.

Some of the requirements stated they may have to undergo health checks as well. Is this rare?
A health check was requested of my non migrating child. As I had reasonable grounds for being unable to provide this I supplied immigration with a stat dec as to why and the case officer let it go.

"May" being the key word, cross the bridge when and if you come to it.

Interesting, I have noticed that there is a note in the details of my (as of now) non-migrating child stating they will require a health check, though this has not been requested via email from a case officer. Hence my query in the other thread regarding adding my child. If I have to pay for a health check anyways, then I might as well add them.

Thank you all, it's just such a lengthy and scary process. I want this enough to do anything for it, but it's still scary

Yes, you have to include them but it's unlikely they would be contacted.

Unless they are financially or otherwise dependent on you, I imagine you would include them as immediate family, rather than in the non-migrating members of the family unit. Therefore if they are not included in the non-migrating family section, they would not be asked to do the medical exams.

Does it matter if I'm a Dependant of them?
