Have you found out anything more about this? My partner has a 6-year-old child who lives with the other parent (who has sole custody). They don't have a good relationship and it would be incredibly difficult to get this information or get a medical done...

Thumbs down

I spoke to Aussie immigration and they told me we would need to have the medicals for his kids even though my husband doesnt have custody and they live elsewhere. - they just repeated to me that they were required.
If I were you i'd email the mother and ask if she'll organise everything (and you'll pay the costs etc), and if she replies that she will not help or allow it at least you will be able to show your case officer you've done everything you can to have the medicals done, and you can show in writing that she won't allow it.

Yes generally any one who has a child migrating or not "u18" will need to have their birth certificates and medicals completed. Case officer will ask for this if you haven't provided this information although its better to have that done already to save you the troubles later.

I have looked to see whether this is covered elsewhere but have not found anything. I am Australian and I have one child (10yo) from a previous relationship. Do I need to include his birth certificate with the application? I cannot see anywhere obvious where it asks for it.

If your the applicant then yes you must provide certified copy of birth certificate and a medical certificate.

Sorry for the lack of clarity. I am Australian - therefore I am the sponsor. Do I still need to provide the birth certificate and medical for my son?

Thanks,

Thanks,
Don't quote me on it. I don't think you need to provide birth certificate as I'm assuming your son is already in Australia and your son will definitely not need a medical. If you would like to confirm this you can contact immigration on 131 881 who will provide accurate information.
