Hi Emrani,

Welcome to the forum!

If I understand you correctly, you are Australian and your spouse is not (where is she from?) and she is currently on a temporary partner visa (first stage) - she is pregnant (congratulations!) and based on this you want to bring her mother to Australia to take care of her during the pregnancy? You mention a doctor's letter so I'm guessing you're looking for a visa purely based on this.

Would you want your mother-in-law over not just for the duration of the pregnancy but after (to help taking care of the newborn baby) as well?

The only things I could think of would be to either get your mother-in-law a 1 year tourist visa if at all possible, or otherwise a parent visa - but they are either painfully expensive or painfully slow. Unfortunately there is no visa I am aware of specifically for this. You as an Australian citizen do have a certain right to bring loved ones into Australia due to emotional ties/circumstances, but as this would be for her, and she is not a citizen, I think it would be very hard to claim a visa for your mother-in-law just based on the fact that it would be good for your wife to have her around during the pregnancy. Unfortunately once we (non-Australian partners who leave their home countries and families) leave our place of origin to come to Australia, generally that is considered a choice and unless your family member is dependent on you it is hard to claim a right to bring people from home over for extended periods of time.

@Nelly87 - Great Questions

Everything asked is very important and relevant. Another question I have, is how long your wife has left on her provisional visa?

Parents can be granted up to 3 years as a tourist in specific situations. Best to consult a professional on the matter, and get professional advice.
