Permanent Resident, Separated from wife...Can I be sent home???

Hi,

I'm sorry if this has already been answered but i can't seem to find what i'm looking for.

I'm a permanent resident here in Australia. I came over on a prospective marriage visa in 2008 and got married the same year.

I got my permanent residency in Jan this year (2011).

My wife and I separated very recently because she wants children and I don't.

My question is, can my PR be cancelled forcing me to return to the UK?

I had planned on becoming a citizen early next year.

I have a very good job here for the government and lots of friends and I don't want to move back to the UK as this is now home.

I know by law I have to inform the Department Of Immigration of my change in circumstances and my wife is threatening to contact them also.

Any advice would be most appreciated!


Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi macajeff,

I just simply say like this, since you're already PR, your wife can't do anything and the DIAC also can't deport you except they find out it was fraud. So rest assured.

Cheers

Thanks for the reply!

No, it wasn't fraud, we have had marriage councelling to try and resolve things. But we both want different things.

Do you think I should contact the department before she informs them or just leave it?

There's nothing she can do. Once you are a permanent residence, as long as you qualified for it at the time you applied (which you must have), you will always remain a permanent resident and can become a citizen. Don't even bother contacting them, unless she claims that you were in fake relationship, that's the end of it.

Thanks for that. I was getting a bit worried.
