Hello my mum came on a visitors visa and was given 12 months with no further stay. The main reason why I brought her over was for her to get away from my dad's family who has been mistreating and abusing her. Shes 58 and not in a good condition health wise. All her kids are in Australia and now she doesn't want to go back with the fear of my dad family doing worse to her. Back home shes suffered depression and became suicidal in 2016. I really wish we can get her a visa to stay permanently so she doesnt have to go back to such a situation back home. Can someone advice me on an affordable visa I can get for her please

There isn't one that I can think of. If she was of pension age, an onshore aged parent visa might have been an option, provided she'd meet "balance of family" requirements.I can't see much scope under protection visas either, but it may be worth talking to someone who specialises in those type of situations. A first stop could be one of the free legal migrant services or domestic violence services.
