family voilence victims how to protect them self from being hurt by threaten?

my husband cheated me , hit me, abused me and our little son who is only 3 years old verbally and phisically, and then he stopped to pay our rent, that resulted in I and two little kids were kicked out of our rented home by the landload .

He refused to pay children school fee and refused to rent a house for us to live. and threaten me to cancel my 457 visa (he is the main applicant) .

I want to know, under this circumstance, what should I do? Can my children and I stay in Australia under our 457 visa? How can I check my visa status to know if my visa is still valid or not? how can we get permenant residence here? or in which case we can get our own visa so that we can run from his visa control? many thanks.

Hi twokids,

At 1st, I'd like to share sympathies for your situation. And as I know, bcoz you are under 457 visa so can't get protected under Family Violence scheme which allows you to gain PR on your own, but your husband can't cancel your 457 visa (it's DIAC), or can't withdraw the sponsorship coz you were sponsored by the employer not him. So I suggest you call straight to DIAC and ask them to get the accurate answer. Btw, this is the site you can check your visa status -

Good luck,

I checked the website but it does not work as the TRN is for the main applicant. So how do I check my own visa and my children's visa online? thanks

You don't have your own visa as you were attached to you husbands visa. You might want to call DIAC, explain your situation and report your husband.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

We are told to remember the idea, not the man. Because a man can fail. He can be killed and forgotten. But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world.
