My husband used me to stay in Australia

I've just recently found out that my husband used me to get residency, we are currently separated. We were married for three years and he only got his residency about 6 months ago. Is there anything I can do to send him home, is it worth me telling immigration?

Probably not. Once he is granted a PR, the only way they would send him back is if it was proved that there was a fraud committed during the application process. Once the PR has been granted the breakdown of the relationship makes no difference to his immigration status.

Wouldn't hurt by informing the immi department and get there advice, obviously if he didn't declare that you were going through or where separated at the time he applied or during the waiting time he was waiting for the decision, then this would be cause for some sort of investigation into the visa being granted, as far as I know any circumstances that change during the waiting period should be reported to the immi department. Any one feel free to correct me if im wrong.

I am guessing that he only seperated after he had his permanent resident visa (PRV) approved. In this case there is nothing that you can do. Rembering that you would have been required to provide evidence of your relationship to get PRV. In saying that if you have uncovered some preferrably written evidence that he had plotted to use you to gain residency, then hell yes report it to the immigration department immediately. An example of evidence could be that you have uncovered emails etc where he is writing to another woman from his home country saying his plan to bring her to Australia (sadly this does occur). This would demonstrate that he fraudulently applied for the PRV and that you only found out after the fact.
Obviously i don't know you but on the facts that you present i feel sorry for you and very angry at someone who could use another to gain access to Australia. I am curious to what country this man is from to try and gain understand of how the embassies think when refusing certain countries. I wish you well

After reading your thread, my advise is that you can't do much on this issue. Just try to learn that there's different kind of people living in this world who just want to take advantage on you. Just try to be cautious next time. Yeah, it's hard to justify but life has to go on.
